Bill Paying

The MA Money Management Program has volunteers, who help elders at risk of losing their independence due to their inability to handle their household finances.

Long Term Care Ombudsmen

Ombudsmen are trained volunteers with whom residents of long-term care facilities, or their families, can speak confidentially about matters of concern.   Residents can discuss their quality of care, conflicts with staff, financial matters, food preferences, facility policies, and other issues.  Ombudsmen advocate on behalf of residents and their families, mediate solutions to various problems, and monitor care and conditions in facilities.  They maintain a presence in facilities to insure that the rights of those residents who cannot speak for themselves are protected.
