Adult foster care provides residential care for people age 18 and over who need supportive housing and services due to physical, emotional, developmental or mental health reasons. Providers of adult foster care are responsible for residents' food, lodging, protection, supervision and household services, personal cares, etc.
Providers must be licensed. The county evaluates prospective homes and recommends licenses for those that meet state standards, monitors providers for compliance, and supports quality foster homes for adults.
A person's needs and choices drive placement decisions; “person center planning” leads all home placements. There is no guarantee of resident placements; providers are not employees or agents of the county.
