Narrative

Adult Family Care (AFC), also called Adult Foster Care, is a program for Mass Health eligible frail elders and adults with disabilities. It is a program designed for those who cannot live alone safely and require assistance with activities of daily living.

AFC program participants live with trained paid caregivers who provide daily care. Caregivers may be family members (except legally responsible relatives or spouses), or can be non-family members.

The program is for adults, over age 16 (or over age 18 when living with family caregivers), who need daily help with personal care, but want to live in a family setting rather than a nursing facility or group home setting.
