Narrative

  • Adult Foster Care provides clinical and financial assistance to qualifying families and caregivers to keep their loved ones at home and out of residential institutions. Eligible individuals must be at least 16 years of age, receive MassHealth Insurance and require daily assistance with mobility, bathing, dressing, toileting, eating or transferring. Caregivers of individuals who are accepted into this program receive reimbursement determined by the individual’s level of need.

Minute Man Arc Adult Family Care augments the mission of Minute Man Arc by working with families of all people who, for whatever reason, cannot safely live alone.  We include, but do not limit our outreach to, individuals with developmental disabilities.  Working with AFC Qualified Caregiver, the AFC Team provides:

  • Nursing support and oversight
  • Case management and support
  • Assistance with accessing community services
  • Training and networking
  • Financial compensation

Minute Man Arc’s AFC program supports all people who, because of medical, physical, cognitive or psychiatric problems cannot safely live alone.  “MMA’s AFC Program offers families the opportunity to delay or even prevent the need for institutional care” explains Mieke Monen, Director of Residential Services.

            Examples of families currently enrolled include:

  • A middle aged man with Downs Syndrome
  • A middles aged woman with complications due to obesity and diabetes
  • A young man on the Autism spectrum
  • An elderly woman with dementia

 

            “The Adult Foster Care Program at Minute Man Arc is a Medicaid funded program.  That means participants must have Mass Health and must be able to get a doctor’s referral” explained Kathleen Kopitsky, Director. “This could be a fine opportunity for families who are struggling with medical issues like dementia or brain injury recovery to get a level of support for caring for their family members.”
