Personal care in safe home environments
Our Adult Foster Care program partners with individuals and caregivers to ensure that adults with medical, developmental and/or behavioral needs can live safely in the community.
We believe that individuals with or without disabilities should live in the most supportive and least restrictive setting possible. We support individuals with medical needs or intellectual disabilities who are living in a home with a family member, a caregiver of choice, or a KDC-trained caregiver.
Services We Offer
Through personalized care plans, we offer a wide range of ongoing supports to better help caregivers for individuals with medical, developmental, emotional, and behavioral needs.
- Case management by KDC case workers
- Caregiver training and professional support
- 24/7 emergency on-call support
- Respite Care – based upon the care recipient’s needs
- Nursing oversight
Who We Support
Our AFC program serves MassHealth Standard or Medicaid eligible individuals ages 16 and older, who, because of medical and/or cognitive challenges, are unable to live independently.
Caregivers may be parents, siblings, extended family, or non-family members, and must reside in the same home as the individual they are caring for. Caregivers cannot be a spouse or legal guardian.
KDC ensures that all caregivers (whether family members or other staff) receive comprehensive initial and ongoing training: CPR/First Aid Certification, Human Rights DPPC, and additional, tailored trainings depending upon the individual needs of the care recipient.
