Adult Family Care

Be paid to do what you do best - providing care for your loved ones

Adult Family Care (AFC) is a program that provides both financial support and practical assistance to caregivers. With a monthly stipend and personal, professional assistance from our staff, you can continue to care for your loved ones at home, where they are most comfortable. Plus, you and your entire family will have access to Open Sky's many resources and supports including social and recreational opportunities, behavioral health support, and more.

A family member qualifies if they are over the age of 16, either disabled or elderly, and need assistance with one or more of the tasks of daily living such as bathing, eating or dressing. Adult Family Care is also available to help support qualifying individuals placed in homes with caregivers who are not relatives.
