Foster Care Services for Adults

Foster care services for adults involve recruiting, developing, and evaluating adult care homes to determine if they meet the needs of residents and to help them improve upon their service.

Adult care homes provide 24-hour supervision and must be licensed by the state in order to operate legally. They are not nursing homes, although designated staff can administer medications and provide personal care services (such as assistance with bathing, eating, and dressing).

All county Departments of Social Services that have an adult care home in their county provide this service.

If you or someone you know requires this service, contact your county department of social services.
