Mass Senior Care Foundation 2020 Highlights
- Participated in and provided financial support for the work of Governor Baker’s Health Care Collaborative
- Collaborated with Mass Senior Care Association, the COVID-19 Policy Alliance and state agencies to create the Resident Care Assistant (RCA) position.

- Awarded 28 scholarships totaling $51,000 to help pay for tuition, books, and other out-of-pocket expenses for long term care staff who are working towards advancing their personal and professional goals. Over the years, the Foundation has awarded scholarships totaling nearly $3 million dollars to more than 1,600 long term care employees.
- Advocated for and supported members in hiring and onboarding Resident Care Assistants, applying for asynchronous CNA training programs, and provided technical support for members establishing relationships with local CNA and nursing training providers.
