As a community-based agency, Boston Senior Home Care has cultivated a network of direct care vendors and providers, many of whom employ bilingual and bicultural direct care workers. In addition, we have long-established relationships with mission-critical aging services providers and nonprofits with whom we collaborate on aging services and supports, nutrition services and benefits, options counseling, caregiving respite and adult day health, affordable housing, in-home services and supports, and more.
We have a long and successful history of collaborating with the Eldercare Alliance, which includes Boston Senior Home Care, Ethos, and Central Boston Elder Services to offer information and referral services through Boston ElderINFO (BEI).
BEI coordinates home-delivered meals, in-home and long-term services and supports, and social services and supports to help older adults and people with disabilities remain safe and healthy at home and in the community. In addition, BEI consults with consumers and makes referrals to a wide range of organizations and public assistance programs throughout the City of Boston.
Boston Senior Home Care also works with agencies serving persons with disabilities, such as the Suffolk County Aging and Disability Resource Consortium (ADRC) and the Boston Center for Independent Living (BCIL).
Currently, we coordinate with several Senior Care Options programs, including United Health Care, BMC HealthNet Plan, Fallon Health, Senior Whole Health, and Commonwealth Care Alliance. These partnerships allow us to provide low-cost healthcare options and social services and supports to older adults and people with disabilities throughout the City of Boston.
Our multi-agency collaboration also extends to our Supportive Housing program. We partner with Boston Housing Authority, Preservation of Affordable Housing and Weston Associates to deliver supportive housing services to all tenants in contracted buildings, regardless of age or disability.
