Sheldon D. Bycoff named to Long-Term Care Advisory Committee

 

ALLSTON, MA – Sheldon D. Bycoff, President and Founder of MHPI, Inc. has been named to a Long-Term Care Financing Advisory Committee created by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The committee is designed to identify strategic options for the future financing of care for elders and individuals with disabilities.

In addition to advising the state regarding long-term financing options that support elders and people with disabilities, the committee will also identify strategic concerns regarding long-term care development and reform as well as other issues relating to the future of long-term care for elders and disabled people in Massachusetts.

Bycoff, who founded MHPI, Inc, formerly known as Mental Health Programs, Inc, has been working in the supportive services field for over thirty years. Mr. Bycoff feels “that this will be a good opportunity for us to sit down and seriously look at the future of long-term care and advise the state the best road to take”. He cited the current state of elderly care in the country remarking that “if something is not done now to address the fact that there is a larger generation getting older and that will need these services, we will be in very serious trouble”.

This 25 member group will be co-convened by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services and the Executive Office of Elder Affairs and is comprised of industry experts and community leaders. The committee’s work will be supported, in part, by the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Commonwealth Medicine and the Massachusetts Medicaid Policy Institute.

MHPI, Inc. is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation specializing in human services. For over 30 years, MHPI has been developing and providing housing for special populations. With several locations in the Greater Boston and central Massachusetts area, MHPI strives to provide a center of well being for its residents and the community at large by continuously “Creating Housing…Supporting Lives”
