    Agency: Pathlight



    Pathlight’s Adult Family Care Program is a residential option for individuals who cannot safely live alone, but don't require the level of support typical of group residences. Individuals who qualify for the Adult Family Care program may remain at home with their family members who provide, in the privacy and comfort of their home, everyday care and support. Other Adult Family Care adults may choose to move into the home of a host family.

    Eligibility for the Adult Family Care program includes individuals age 16 or over who have (or are eligible) for Mass Health and have a medical, physical, or cognitive disability that requires daily physical assistance, prompting or supervision to successfully complete routine activities of daily living (ADLs). ADLs are defined as bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring from one position to another, ambulating, eating, or other challenging issues such as wandering, resistance to care, etc. Anyone can refer an eligible adult. Referrals come from public agencies, physicians, nursing homes, family members, and private parties.

    The Adult Family Care Program is a Medicaid/Mass Health funded program which pays family and non-family caregivers for their oversight of eligible adults with physical, cognitive, or medical disabilities. Caregivers receive a monthly, tax-exempt stipend in addition to a room-and-board payment from the individual’s benefits.
