About Adult Family Care
Adult Family Care, otherwise known as Adult Foster Care (AFC), is a MassHealth funded home-setting health care program for residents of Massachusetts.
A person receives AFC because he or she requires assistance with activities of daily living. This may be the result of frailty, chronic illness, advanced age, cognitive, physical or mental disability. The AFC recipient may continue to live with a family member, who will become a qualified caregiver, or move in with a caregiver, who will be trained to meet their needs.
My Choice Programs gives participants an opportunity to enjoy the life that comes with sharing their lives with others in a community setting.
