The Adult Foster Care is a MASS HEALTH State-funded program that transforms lives. This is a service provided at no cost to members of MassHealth. The services allow for seniors and persons with disabilities who need assistance with personal care tasks to remain in their home and in the community with a qualified and approved caregiver.


The Healthier You Adult Foster Care (HY- AFC) Program provides valuable caring assistance to adults 16 years and older who, because of illness, weakness, disability, or advanced age, cannot live safely at home alone. This program is designed for those who do not require constant 24-hour monitoring but do need a significant amount of daily assistance.

Adult Foster Care programs are steeped in the fundamental belief that people have a right to remain at home, in a community setting. This is paramount to the success of our program. Choice leads to independence and dignity for the participant, which helps foster a more meaningful and successful outcome.

As an AFC member, you will live with your trained Caregiver, who can be a family relative or an unrelated family friend. The Caregiver will provide assistance, prompting, or supervision with bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring, ambulating/walking, and eating. The Caregiver will also provide transportation for medical appointments and be a good companion as well.

Dedicated and supportive care in the home leads to better mental and physical health, greater participant satisfaction and dignity, as well as a reduction in falls and reduced hospitalizations, which in turn result in cost savings to the family and the state.

When we become involved in an individual's care, we ensure the safety of our participants through our multidisciplinary care teams, which include the participant, the caregiver, a registered nurse and a case manager, carefully develop a plan of care that meets the participants' medical, physical, emotional, social and other needs.

Our support of participants is invaluable; our registered nurses and case managers are often the only contact families and participants have. We reduce stress for caregivers and decrease burnout.
