About Adult Foster Care

All Care’s Adult Foster Care program (AFC) allows individuals, who are unable to remain at home alone due to chronic illness, or physical and/or mental disabilities, to stay in their home or in the home of a loved one in order to maximize their quality of life. Adult Foster Care 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.
