Caring for people with disabilities in Ohio

Since 2012, Caregiver Homes of Ohio 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 Ohio, our Structured Family Caregiving model is known as Shared Living (formerly Adult Foster Care or Adult Family Living).
