Home care can often pose financial challenges for both the elderly and their loved ones. Fortunately, there are a good number of funding options available, and now Advanced Home Care Services offers one more: GAFC.
What does that stand for? Group Adult Foster Care. This service, administered by the Massachusetts state government’s MassHealth program, can pay for your case management and home care services if you are eligible and live in GAFC-approved housing.
To qualify, you must meet MassHealth’s income eligibility standard. For more information, click here.
Once you’re approved, AHCS will assign a Registered Nurse and Case Manager to develop a customized care plan for you, and a Home Health Care Aide will deliver personal care and homemaking right where you live. Our services are available on a 24/7 basis, and we can also help with medication management if you wish.
We know, we know … applying for programs like these can be a hassle. But AHCS will provide paperwork and guide you through every step in the application process, including determining whether you are eligible. Just call GAFC Case Manager Denise Rodriguez at (508) 872-0038 ext. 7960. You can also call our main number at (508) 872-0038 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
