Our Mission

MARCH (Massachusetts Association of Residential Care Homes), established in 1991, is the only organization solely representing rest homes and the residential care community. MARCH is a 501(c6). The mission of the organization is to encourage financial viability, support and advocacy and increased visibility and recognition of the cost effective quality of care offered residents in a home-like setting within the long term care continuum.

What do Residential Care Homes (Rest Homes) Provide?

Provide care and supervision 24 hours a day for those who do not need nursing home care. Homes provide coordination of medical care, medication administration, 3 meals and snacks a day, personal care, laundry, activities and housekeeping in small homelike environments. All at one fixed daily rate. See a comparison of care offered by other care settings.
