Adult Family Care / Shared Living

BFAIR is licensed to provide Adult Family Care, a MassHealth funded program, designed to support people 16 years of age and older who have medical, physical, and emotional needs that require assistance throughout the day.  AFC providers, caregivers, are offered training and support, case management and care coordination, on-call support, home visits by our registered nurses, respite services, and a tax-free stipend.  This program is wonderfully supportive for families that are already providing care for a loved one in their home.

Homecare

Through collaborations with Elder Service of Berkshire County, BFAIR provides in-home care for elders. We assist with medical and home care needs. Our qualified licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, and experienced home makers work as part of the treatment team to ensure superior care in the comfort of the home. Our program is growing throughout Berkshire County and into Franklin County.

Our Residences

BFAIR’ s Community Residential Services offer supportive, flexible, and individualized living assistance for people with developmental disabilities and acquired brain injury, ranging in age from young adult to elderly. The program offers a variety of residential options, including staffed apartments, cooperative apartments, group residences, individual apartments with outreach, shared living arrangements and adult foster care placements. Currently the agency provides residential services in ten 24-hour staffed homes, one less than 24-hour home, twenty semi-independent living situations and twenty-two shared living homes. Each person receiving residential supports has a comprehensive individualized service plan and receives case management support around established goals. Each person receiving or referred for residential services is supported to develop, maintain, and improve personal relationships; to participate in meaningful and productive activities; to make informed decisions; to be as fully independent as possible and to explore assistive devices and accommodations. In accordance with our missions, we actively involve all people living in the home in the development and assessment of the household and its ongoing activities and functions.
