HMEA’s Adult Family Care (AFC) provides ongoing training, professional support and even financial compensation to people who require assistance with their daily activities like bathing, eating and dressing so they can continue to live at home. Services also include nursing oversight and case management.
AFC supports help caregivers cope with the tremendous mental and physical challenges of caring for a loved one at home. AFC services include nursing oversight and case management.
To qualify for AFC, individuals must be at least 16-years-old, qualify for MassHealth, require daily assistance with one or more activities of daily living and be willing to participate in the program.
Caregivers may be parents, siblings, extended family or non-family members. Caregivers can not be a spouse or legal guardian (a parent of a minor child or court appointed of an adult). Caregivers must reside in the same home as the person they are caring for.
