Main Digest

Massachusetts aging and disability information locator taps alliance as home care source. Provides easy, accurate, up-to-date information to Bay Staters.

The Massachusetts Aging and Disability Information Locator (MADIL), an online service provided by the state's Executive Office of Health and Human Services, will now include the Home Care Alliance's online member directory to help people connect with home health services.

"MADIL is a great resource for families and individuals seeking vital care services," said Home Care Alliance Executive Director Patricia Kelleher. "I am pleased that the Alliance and our members are integrated into the search system and I applaud Health and Human Services for expanding people's access to important information, which will make life easier for the elderly and disabled community."

"Since the launch of MADIL in 2007 we are excited to keep adding links to major disability and aging services such as the Alliance to this important tool," said Executive Office of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Jean McGuire.

MADIL can be found online at www.madil.org and the Alliance's member directory is automatically integrated into the system. The Alliance database is also the only non-government source currently on MADIL, where anyone can log on and type in a search term to find the services that best suit them. For search results involving home care, each agency's' contact information, the services they offer, the towns they operate in, and the location of any of their branches will be displayed.

This new service is an expansion on the Alliance's publications distributed across the state, including the Home Care Resource Directory and The Guide to Private Home Care Services.
