Bringing People Home

Bringing People Home, A webinar for attorneys, paralegals, and legal advocates
explaining the Marsters v. Healey Settlement Agreement. May 29th 3-4:30 pm, est or June 7, 10-11:30 am, est. CPR and GBLS logos. Hosted by Dignity Alliance

Marsters v. Healey was filed by seven individuals with disabilities who are living in nursing facilities in Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Senior Action Council brought against the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The plaintiffs claimed that they had a right to live in the community but needed support from the State to do so.

This Settlement Agreement will expand the resources available throughout Massachusetts for individuals such as the plaintiffs and thousands of people like them, allowing many nursing facility residents to receive residential services and supports provided in the community instead of in a nursing facility.

CPR and GBLS have prepared a webinar especially for attorneys, paralegals, and legal advocates. The objectives of the webinar are to review basic provisions of the Agreement and describe avenues for ongoing advocacy for class members during the implementation period. The Agreement is anticipated to be finalized in federal court in later June.

Two webinar presentations have been scheduled:
