Adult Family Home Services are community-based services delivered in typical family homes that are licensed by Residential Care Services to support from 2 to 6 residents. Caregivers provide assistance with individualized care tasks that are identified in the resident’s annual assessment and in their Person-Centered Service Plan. Adult Family Homes are regular neighborhood homes where staff assumes responsibility for the safety and well-being of the adult. A room, meals, laundry, supervision and varying levels of assistance with care are provided. Some provide occasional nursing care.
