ADULT FOSTER CARE of the NORTH SHORE
is a MassHealth program that places adults with disabilities in private homes where the home caregiver receives payment. A family member (other than spouse) may be a home care provider. Our clients have a wide range of disabilities from very mild to severe, and ADULT FOSTER CARE works with caregivers to find the right client for the home. The client must have a daily personal care need. Adult Foster Care is part of a growing, exciting statewide program in Massachusetts. The focus is to keep adults with disabilities in the community instead of an institution. Our team of professionals works with clients and caregivers to ensure a stable, healthy placement. We are available and welcome inquiries.
