Aging Service Access Points
Aging Service Access Points (ASAPs) are one-stop entry points for all of the services and benefits available to seniors in Massachusetts. These agencies provide information, applications, direct services, and referrals. They manage the state-based Massachusetts Home Care Program, and work with Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs), established under the federal Older Americans Act, to make sure that seniors have access to all essential services. In Massachusetts, many senior agencies are combined ASAPs/AAAs.
There are 27 ASAPs in Massachusetts covering exclusive geographic areas. Intercity Home Care provides staffing to these 11 Aging Service Access Points below.
*These are Aging Service Access Points only. All others are both an Area Agency on Aging (AAA) and an Aging Service Access Point.
