On behalf of all of us here at the Central Massachusetts Agency on Aging, we want to wish you a safe, restful Thanksgiving holiday.

We know this year poses unique challenges for celebrating the holidays. That’s why we’ve compiled a series of #ThanksgivingTips to help you get through as safely as possible.

These tips will be posted on our social media throughout the coming days, but as a newsletter subscriber, you get a first look!

Senior Fraud HelpLine

When calling the HelpLine, you will find a peer who may have had a similar experience to yours. You will speak with a person trained and knowledgeable about what to do next; a confidante who cares about your fears. The volunteers answering these calls have been trained to identify the tell-tale signs of scams and frauds.

You are not alone.

Central Massachusetts Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program

CMAA is pleased to offer seniors residing in nursing or rest homes

a continuing resource for resolving issues related to long-term care!

What is the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program?

An Ombudsman visits residents in nursing and rest homes to investigate and resolve complaints related to personal care, their belongings, food matters, roommate problems, and other issues which impact their daily lives. Ombudsmen resolve complaints through discussion, negotiation, or referring issues to the State Ombudsman. They also provide residents, their families, and community members with information and advocacy.

These professionals are trained and certified by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs and here to help!
