Group Adult Foster Care (GAFC)
Group Adult Foster Care
The Group Adult Foster Care (GAFC) program helps elderly, low-income Massachusetts’s residents with the cost of group adult foster care. The GAFC program financially contributes to personal care services, medication management and administration. Group adult foster care includes assisted living care, provided the GAFC Program has approved the residence. The residences included in this program tend to be smaller group homes.
GAFC pays for personal care services and medication management and administration. But it does not cover living costs, such as room and board. Massachusetts, however, provides financial assistance for assisted living room and board costs through the Supplemental Security Income (SSI-G) Assisted Living Benefit. This can be used in combination with the GAFC Program. The GAFC Program is under the administration of MassHealth—the Massachusetts Medicaid program.
