What is an Adult Family Care Home (AFCH)?

Adult family care homes (AFCHs) are private residences that are licensed to provide housing, meals, companionship, personal care assistance and 24 hours supervision to older persons and disabled adults who are unable to live independently. AFCHs are owned and operated by licensed AFCH providers who live with the residents they serve. In addition, AFCHs are limited to a maximum of five (5) residents. AFCHs are intended to be a less costly alternative to more restrictive, institutional settings for individuals who do not need 24-hour nursing supervision.
