Adult Foster Care Program (AFC)

Adult Foster Care (AFC) is a program that allows persons above the age of 16 who need assistance with personal care tasks to remain in their home and community with a qualified and approved caregiver. This program works by providing financial assistance and support for family members or friends who act as the caregiver. In the AFC program the caregiver must reside in the same property as the recipient of care.

Benefits

Benefits of the AFC program should be thought of on two levels: Benefits to the individual in need of care and the benefits received by the caregiver.

Care recipients receive supervision, and assistance with day-to-day activities, such as feeding, bathing, dressing and mobility.  They can also receive assistance with other activities, such as transportation, med reminders. They also benefit by living in a family home with care being provided by someone with whom they are comfortable and familiar.

Care providers receive a tax-free compensation for their caregiving efforts. In the case of family members, caregivers are paid for work that they would have likely provided for free. The AFC Program offers two levels of compensation, depending on the care needs of the individual.
