What is Adult Foster Care?
Funded by MassHealth (Medicaid), Adult Foster Care allows a family member or friend to provide 24-hour care for qualified members in their own homes. Members do not need to be bedridden to qualify. Unlike nursing homes or assisted living, Adult Foster Care allows the member to stay at home. Caregivers receive a tax-free payment for their services, allowing them the opportunity to provide 24-hour in-home care for their loved ones.
Adult Foster Care services through MassHealth could be the solution for adults who require assistance or cannot live alone but wish to remain in their own homes.
