It all depends on what type of services you expect to provide and who you expect to pay for the services.
An example of services:
1) Home health aides
5) help with daily living activities
2) Private Insurance
3) Medicaid (State)
4) Medicare (Federal)
There is different licensure requirements for each. You might want to look into a franchise that can provide you with the back-office/licensure help you will need or buy an existing business with everything in place.
Best of luck,

Our elder care services are highly personalized and flexible. We provide the home care services you want when you most need them. We can provide home health care from as little as a few hours to 24-hours a day. And we don't forget the personal touches that are so important - a steady hand, a bright smile, and the willingness to go to extra lengths to reassure you and your loved one - these are all hallmarks of our elder care service.
Since you are in Massachusetts you could try connecting with the Executive Office of Elder Affairs, as most elder services are provided by the ASAP network.
You will also need to get a provider number to bill Masshealth.
You could also supply services to the disabled.
The main issue is getting connected with the community at large, and let them know you are providing services.
