Adult Foster Care is a state-funded program that transforms lives. Its services allow seniors and persons with disabilities who need assistance with personal care tasks to remain in a home and in the community with a qualified and approved caregiver. We at the Massachusetts Council for Adult Foster Care offer professional support to the agencies across the state that provide this valuable program.
The council has supported its dedicated member agencies since the mid-1970s. This support comes in many forms - through interpreting and implementing regulations, developing best practices, establishing networking connections for like agencies or advocating for appropriate funding for caregivers. All of these efforts ultimately benefit vulnerable individuals in Massachusetts communities who need it most.
Through leadership, knowledge and advocacy, we engage with more than 80 Adult Foster Care provider agencies across the state, allowing over 12,000 participants, starting as young as age 16, to thrive in their homes and their communities through the support of their caregivers.
