Our Supportive Housing program at Boston Senior Home Care assists low-income residents who reside in elderly/disabled housing complexes so that they can age in place and make lifestyle changes that improve their quality of life.
Specific services include: on-site service coordination with a dedicated case manager, an on-site registered nurse (RN) with office hours, health and wellness education workshops, and social programs and activities.
One resident at Franklin Square
House when asked about her experience since our
Resident Coordinator was introduced to the building
“I love almost all of the activities. Before Jing (the BSHC Resident Coordinator) came we didn’t really have lots of activities and people were kind of lonely, but since BSHC came we have lots more activities and people get to participate and socialize more. Also, because of Jing’s role I can let her know some of my concerns or difficulties and she can help me solve those problems. That’s a huge blessing to me.”
