OVERVIEW

Caring for people with disabilities in Indiana

Since 2013, Caregiver Homes of Indiana has supported families in providing high-quality, 24-hour care at home for people with disabilities in need of physical care and assistance. We help make it possible for a family member or friend to become the primary in-home caregiver by providing them with the support and financial assistance they need. In Indiana, our Structured Family Caregiving model is known as Adult Foster Care or Adult Family Care to people with disabilities, and is part of Indiana’s Community Integration and Habilitation Waiver (CIH).
