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.
