What is Adult Foster Care?
All Care’s Adult Foster Care (AFC) Program supports caregivers and the older adults and individuals with disabilities who rely on them for assistance with daily living activities. Caregivers receive a generous stipend, customized care plan, training, and support. Care recipients benefit from personalized care and the ability to remain at home.

How Does Adult Foster Care Work?
All Care’s CARF-accredited AFC program is an alternative to nursing home or assisted living placement. In-home family caregivers provide meals, companionship, personal care assistance, and 24-hour supervision to program participants.
Caregivers receive a tax-free stipend which can help to ease the financial burden of caring for the individual. The AFC program provides monthly nursing and care manager visits where both client and caregiver receive the support and resources they need to share a safe, happy, fulfilling life. Although caregivers are often family members, a prior relationship with the person in their care is not required; however, an AFC caregiver cannot be a spouse or legal guardian.
