Adult Family Care (AFC) is not just about in-home assistance, but also empowerment. Some people need support to live on their own and Viability provides Adult Family Care services to give individuals that choice so that they live in the community with greater independence. We emphasize a person-centered approach for elderly individuals and people with disabilities who need companionship, a safe environment with their own private space, behavioral health support and daily care. With AFC, limitations and isolation are replaced by respect, friendships and community connection.

Participants choose their primary caregivers from family, friends, or caring community members. Viability’s support also extends to the caregiver providing them with training, case management, nursing oversight, and financial compensation.
