Boston Globe: South Boston Adult Care Program to Close

Due to the amendment in Medicaid Adult Day Health regulations meant to save $6 million, many adult day health centers will be closing their doors. Among them is Catholic Cahrities’ Laboure Center, which serves 45 elders and adults with special needs.

The Boston Globe reported on the closing of the Laboure Center that will shut down on December 31.

The budget cuts will impact centers across the state, as the following excerpt explains:

Because of the new state regulations, which went into effect Nov. 15 as part of an effort to cut $6 million in Medicaid spending, at least 50 percent of adult day program participants are ineligible for some basic care, according to the Massachusetts Adult Day Services Association.

Call the Governor’s office TODAY at 617-725-4005 and urge him to take action!
