What Is The Massachusetts Group Adult Foster Care (GAFC) Program?
Senior Companionship Services

This program, administered by MassHealth, can help you get subsidized case management and home care services if you are eligible and live in GAFC-approved housing. Under this program, one of our Home Health Care Aides will help you with housekeeping, meal preparation, medication reminders, bathing, companionship, and other needs.

  • We will monitor your needs on an ongoing basis
  • A Home Health Care Aide will deliver personal care and homemaking services in your residence

  • Live in an adequate GAFC-approved residence
  • Meet MassHealth’s income eligibility standard
  • Need assistance with one or more personal care tasks such as ambulation, bathing, dressing, grooming or meal preparation
