Adult Foster Care

Adult foster care means personal care and supportive services (e.g., homemaker, chore, and medication oversight to the extent permitted under state law) provided in a private home by an unrelated, principal care giver who lives in the home and whose primary, legal residence is that home. Adult foster care is furnished to adults who receive these services in conjunction with residing in the home. Adult foster care services, their associated activities, and skill development proximate the rhythm of life that naturally occurs as part of living in the family home. Homemaker and chore services are furnished to the individual as a component of adult foster care. Due to the environment provided by foster care, segregating these activities into discrete services is impractical.‚Äč
