What is a Caregiver?

Caregivers are dependable, responsible people who provide care and a stable home environment for adults with disabilities or chronic illnesses.

AFCNS Caregivers are most often a family member or someone wanting to take care of a person with disabilities. Our caregivers are supported by AFCNS’ professional staff and are given training regarding the personal care needs of their clients. AFCNS placements are entirely voluntary and we carefully and selectively match clients with caregivers. Caregivers may work outside the home if their schedule allows for proper client attention and care.

AFCNS Caregivers must provide:

  • A stable home setting (owned or rented) that is clean and in good shape
  • Daily meals and snacks
  • A  bedroom with a window and a door for privacy
  • A private or shared bathroom
  • Daily personal care

Financial Solutions

Adult Foster Care is a MassHealth-funded program that provides a tax-free, monthly stipend to the caregiver.

Caregivers can receive up to $1,700 per month plus room and board, per client, depending on the level of care. Many of our clients already live with a family member who could qualify as a caregiver and be eligible for a monthly payment. In fact, over 95% of clients are in family placements.

If you would like to learn more about being an AFCNS caregiver or to find out if you qualify as a caregiver for a loved one already in your care, please call us at 978-281-2612 or fill out the form below.
