Home Care


Adult Foster Homes are custom built or converted residences that offer care in a home-like setting. They provide one or more caregivers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Most foster homes are approved to care for a maximum of 5 senior or disabled residents at any one time. Foster Homes can be more affordable than other living situations and are ideal for seniors who need more assistance and less independence than they would receive in a Residential Care Facility or Assisted Living Community.

Some Adult Foster Homes are able to provide more complex care because of their training and background or with help from visiting nurses. A caregiver may receive instruction from a registered nurse to perform a care task specific to a particular resident. In some cases, providers may be able to meet your care needs if you are coming to the adult foster home directly from the hospital after surgery or you are recovering from a serious illness. Other adult foster home providers have special training to provide care for people with Alzheimer’s disease, some brain injuries, respiratory failure, or the need for Hospice services.

Adult Foster Homes are classified as level 1, 2, or 3 (see below) which signifies the degree of care needs their residents can have. Here are some of the services you can expect from every Adult Foster Home:

  • Meals and help with eating
  • Help with dressing

  • Help with walking or getting in or out of bed (mobility)

Merida Daly, cared for her husband for 15 years after he suffered a severe stroke that left him confined to a wheelchair and unable to speak. Finding quality care and trustworthy people to properly care for him was very difficult. She was very grateful once she found those loving caregivers!
