Adult Family Living (AFL) is a unique housing model which allows older adults to live in a private home and receive care.
Personal care and support services are provided to the older adult by a caregiver who lives in the home that is owned by either the older adult or the caregiver. The caregiver is often a family member or friend. The caregiver will either move into the home of the older adult or the older adult will move into the home of the caregiver.
The Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) offers AFL under the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders (CHCPE) and the Personal Care Assistance (PCA) Waiver. More information on these programs are below.
