The Commonwealth is home to more than 1 million residents age 65 and over. Some of these people are both financially secure and healthy.

They are often aided by the MassHealth program, which includes Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
The Caregiver, Advise, Record, Enable (CARE) Act takes effect March 8, requiring state agencies to develop guidance for hospitals to ease the transition back home for patients and their caregivers.
