Respite Pay is Restored!

We are extremely happy to report that the State has decided to restore funding to pay Adult Family Care (AFC) caregivers for respite days. Thank you to everyone who helped by calling their legislators, sending an email or presenting testimonials.


We are proud to have been one of the only AFC programs that remained committed to respite pay for caregivers, even when it was not being paid for by MassHealth. We are also proud to have been involved with the lobbying efforts by sharing stories of families in our program who would be affected by this change and by involving our families in legislative action.
