A Program Providing Support and Financial Assistance to Families Caring for Their Loved Ones Keeping Loved Ones At Home, Together!

WHAT IS ADULT FAMILY CARE? Adult Family Care is a state-funded program through MassHealth that provides assistance and support to individuals in their community. The program encourages and supports seniors and persons with disabilities who need assistance with personal care tasks to remain in a residence and in the community with a qualified and approved caregiver who can be a family member. This program is ideal for a person who currently lives with, or has the potential to live with, a loved one who is in need of care in their home and/or supervision. By supplementing the care that is being provided with a stipend and the support of a Care Team, including a Registered Nurse and a Case Manager, this program will increase the effectiveness and quality of the care being received. The twice-monthly stipend will help to financially assist your family and the Care Team will provide physical and emotional support to you and your loved one in-need. The primary role of the Registered Nurse is to assess and coordinate the care that may be required, while the case manager will provide emotional support to the caregiver and member, alike.
