What is Adult Foster Care (AFC)?
Adult Foster Care supports individuals with medical needs or intellectual disabilities living in the homes of family members, caregiver of choice, or a KDC-trained caregiver. Family members may receive AFC supports as long as the family member is eligible to receive Masshealth or Medicaid, and both the family member and caregiver both meet program requirements. Our seasoned staff assist applicants through the assessment and eligibility process.
KDC partners with caregivers.
Adult Foster Care caregivers are family or non-family members who provide live-in practical supports and companionship to an individual with medical, developmental, and/or behavioral needs. Caregivers may also help family members to coordinate visits, care, and service planning.
