Raynham Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Raynham:

Low Income Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)

Address: 100 Cambridge St., Suite 300, Boston, MA 02114
Phone: (617) 573-1100

The Low Income Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) helps seniors in Raynham prepare their homes for both winter and summer weather with new insulation, upgraded weatherstripping and possibly new windows and doors. The program also provides professional home inspections by licensed local contractors at no cost for eligible seniors. To be eligible, seniors in Raynham must own their homes and meet income and asset limitations, which are available on the program’s state website.

Home Modification Loan Program (HMLP)

Address: 600 Washington St., Boston, MA 02111
Phone: (617) 204-3600

Senior homeowners in Raynham can make necessary improvements to their property’s access and safety with a 0% home improvement loan. This loan program is offered by the Home Modification Loan Program (HMLP), which secures funding for a network of local lenders. Eligible senior homeowners may qualify for a 0% loan to install wheelchair ramps, guard rails or wider doorways or to make other needed improvements and repairs to the house.

Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

Address: 100 Cambridge St., Suite 300, Boston, MA 02114

Seniors in Raynham who pay their own electric and gas bills may qualify for steep discounts on their monthly energy bills from the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), often called the Fuel Assistance Program in Massachusetts. LIHEAP savings may rise as high as 30% of the average monthly utility bill for many seniors. The program also provides assistance finding and getting energy-efficient appliances and upgraded home insulation. One-time payments may be made under the program to help prevent disconnection on an emergency basis.

Family Caregiver Support Program

Address: One Ashburton Pl., Floor 5, Boston, MA 02108
Phone: (617) 727-7750

The Family Caregiver Support Program pays many of the costs seniors in Raynham face when hiring an in-home caregiver.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
