Residential Options

People who are in need of assistance and a place to live, may be eligible for services to help meet that need.

Adult Family Care

Adult Family Care (AFC) is a 24-hour, home-based, shared living option for eligible Choices for Care (CFC) participants. Authorized Agencies (AA) are paid a daily tiered rate by Medicaid to contract with private, unlicensed family homes that serve one to two people that are not related to the home provider. The home provider receives a tax-free stipend to provide services to the person.

Home Share

DAIL supports two innovative HomeShare Programs in Vermont: HomeShare Vermont is active in Addison, Chittenden and Grand Isle Counties; HomeShare Now is active in Washington and Orange Counties.  “Homesharing” arranges live-in ‘matches’ between Vermonters who have a living space to share and others who need a place to live and can offer support (such as personal care, housekeeping, and socialization). HomeShare Vermont also helps seniors and people with disabilities find paid caregivers to help them remain in their homes.  The HomeShare Programs have been successful in helping people stay in their own homes, as well as in helping people find affordable housing.

Nursing Facilities

Vermont Licensed Nursing Facilities follow all federal and state regulations for providing care. Most accept Medicare and Medicaid coverage for services, in addition to private pay. Nursing facilities provide a high level of care with 24-hour nursing services, including room & board. The Division of Licensing and Protection enforces state and federal statues and regulations for Vermont Nursing Facilities.

Residential Care and Assisted Living Residences

Vermont offers two licensed residential care home options: Level III Residential Care and Assisted Living Residences. Homes provide assistance with personal care, nursing overview and 24-hour oversight. Approved homes may offer Medicaid coverage for services as well as private pay.
