AFC enables the elderly and individuals with chronic illness or disabilities to continue living at home with their families, maintaining dignity and privacy.

AFC ensures that each participant receives the assistance they need with activities of daily living, such as personal care, meals, and supervision.

Our program provides training and support from a multi-disciplinary team including a registered nurse and a case manager.

Requirements for AFC Participation:

  • AFC is available to individuals over the age of 16 who cannot live safely on their own due to medical, physical, cognitive or mental disability.
