What Is Adult Foster Care and Is It Right for You?

Charles River Center, Needham

Adult Foster Care is a program that is designed for those who would like to live in a family setting in the community with an approved caregiver. Caregivers can be relatives, friends and non-related people with the exception of a spouse or a parent who is the guardian.


Caregivers are paid a tax-free daily stipend for the services they provide such as assistance with activities of daily living, personal care, meal preparation and transportation to appointments.  The “placement” is monitored regularly by an RN and a care manager who provide support and education to the caregiver and the participant.

 This program is funded through MassHealth. If you are interested in this program for your family and would like more information please call Yvette Jones, Director of Adult Foster Care, at 781-972-1017 for more information or email at
