Adult Foster Care of the North Shore was founded in 2001 by Cynthia Bjorlie, M.D. to provide financial, emotional and clinical support solutions to families who need care for a disabled or chronically ill loved one. We are a single-focused agency that is dedicated to keeping clients happy, healthy and engaged in the community.
Originally focused in Gloucester and neighboring North Shore towns, AFCNS now serves over 350 families throughout Essex County. For 20 years, our committed team has been working closely with clients, caregivers and professionals to maintain safe and stable housing placements and enable our clients to remain a vital part of their community.
Program Director Cynthia Bjorlie, M.D., recently visited the Rosetti Cowan Senior Center in Revere to discuss the adult foster care programs available in Massachusetts and how to determine eligibility for the program.
