Who Does Family Care Serve?


Aging and disability resource centers (ADRCs) serve the general public and offer information and assistance on issues affecting older people, people with disabilities, and their families.

The Family Care, Family Care Partnership, and PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) programs are available through managed care organizations.

Managed care organizations serve people in three primary target groups who have a long-term care condition expected to last for more than 90 days. The three Family Care target groups are:

  1. Frail older adults (65 years or older)
  2. People with physical disabilities (18 years or older)
  3. People with intellectual/developmental disabilities (18 years or older) (ADRCs and managed care organizations can begin planning for children with physical or intellectual/developmental disabilities prior to their eighteenth birthday.)

People with dementia and people with a terminal condition may also be eligible for Family Care.

As of August 1, 2021, there were 55,465 people enrolled in Family Care, Partnership, and PACE. View current enrollment data.
