Adult Family Care
People who are unable to live independently because of a medical, physical or developmental disability will benefit from meaningful, lasting relationships in a family or family-like setting, a setting where their needs are met, their interests and choices are supported and involvement with their community is encouraged.
Adult Family Care recognizes and supports the extraordinary commitment people make when they care for a loved one in their home or place their trust in a home-away-from-home for that loved one. It is a program that provides compassionate, individualized care as well as funding to support that care. Caregivers receive a tax-exempt stipend and a room-and-board payment from the individual’s benefits.
