The Massachusetts Money Management Program is a free service that assists elders who have difficulty writing checks, balancing their checkbooks and managing their money. Jointly sponsored by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs and Mass Home Care, the program has been part of SeniorCare Inc. since 1995. The program helps those who might be at risk of losing their independence due to their inability to pay basic rent, food and utility bills on time. Oftentimes, these clients are homebound, with visual or physical disabilities, or confused without family to help.
Elders who do not meet the eligibility guidelines of the MA Money Management Program may wish to contact SeniorCare’s Paywise North Shore program. Paywise North Shore is a fee-based program, which provides financial guidance and services.
