Adult Family Care

Adult Family Care helps support a safe, nurturing home for people who need assistance to complete the activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing, eating nutritious meals, walking and mobility. We will work with the person supported and their identified care team, with information from their health care providers, to create a person-centered Plan of Care.

Monthly visits from the RN, Care Manager, and Community Health Worker offer detailed health service coordination, communication and related support. This dynamic service delivery plan allows for AFC member engagement in the planning and receiving of care in the comfort of their own home.     

Through Adult Family Care, people become care providers for family members with any medical diagnosis, whether intellectual, developmental or physical disabilities, that results in the member needing assistance and oversight to safely manage specific needs, while living at home.

Nonotuck Resource Associates, Inc. facilitates services and resources such as nursing, case management, and clinical care for the member and financial support via a biweekly stipend for the family caregivers.

People who need help are able to stay with their families in the familiar comfort and stability of their own homes and communities.

“To love someone fiercely, to believe in something with your whole heart, to celebrate a fleeting moment in time, to fully engage in a life that doesn’t come with guarantees – these are risks that involve vulnerability and often pain. But, I’m learning that recognizing and leaning into the discomfort of vulnerability teaches us how to live with joy, gratitude and grace.”
