Care Begins at Prestige Adult Foster Care
We strive to provide professional care and support services to our clients while enhancing their independence and promoting their right to make decisions.
What is Adult Foster Care?
When elderly people or adults with physical disabilities are no longer able to care for themselves in their own homes, Adult Foster Care (AFC) may be an option. AFC is a program funded by MassHealth that pays family or non-family members a monthly tax-free stipend to care for people age 16 and older in a home-setting, who cannot live safely on their own. Caregivers can receive up to $1500 per month, per client. Registered nurses and case managers offer ongoing education advocacy, and health care oversight through monthly home visits, phone consultations and 24/7 on-call emergency support. The goal of adult foster care is to provide care and services to people living at home while supporting their independence, choice, and right to make decisions.
Adult Foster Care (AFC) supports people who need assistance because of:
- Aging Issues
- Medical Conditions
- Mental Illness
- Developmental and/or Physical Disabilities
Who We Are

Members are matched with approved families who provide lodging and personal care services in their home. Individuals who provide in-home care for a family member and are not a guardian or spouse to that individual may be eligible to become an AFC caregiver.
To provide successful placements focused on the best interest of our clients, their families, and friends with the most efficient use of caring professionals. Our motto and daily focus is that, if we take care of the foster family, they will take care of their loved ones.
