Foster Care, Adult
Call for location
The adult foster care service covers the provision of protection, supervision, household services, help with living skills or training and support for safeguarding cash resources. Foster care services are individualized and based on the needs of the person, as identified in the support plan.
There are two types of Adult Foster Care:
* Family Adult Foster Care - In Family Adult Foster Care the license holder lives in the home and is the primary provider of care.
* Corporate Adult Foster Care - In Corporate Adult Foster Care the license holder does not live in the home and is not the primary provider of care. Trained and hired staff generally provide services.
In Minnesota there is not a service called "group home." When the term "group home" is used, it is usually referencing the corporate adult foster care service.
Provides affordable housing, supportive services and compassionate care to people living with Human Immunodeficiency Virus / Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS).
The homes are staffed 24/7, each serving four residents who are HIV positive, who have significant disability-related needs, and often need reliable care and support to live outside of a nursing home.
Staff provides rehabilitation support to those needing to stabilize their health before returning to independent living and long term care to those disabled by HIV/AIDS. In addition, they provide end of life care to those at the terminal stage of the disease. Clare Housing's 24/7 care assists those who must be supervised because of dementia and mental health problems, physical frailty, inability to take prescribed medications and prepare adequate nutrition.

BH-8400.6000-020Adult Foster Homes Definition
Agency-supervised private family homes that provide alternative family living arrangement for older adults or adults with disabilities who need supervision and personal care (but generally not nursing care) and who do not live with their families. The arrangement provides an opportunity for the individual to become a participating member of the family and the community in which the family resides, and to share in the interaction and responsibilities of being a part of a family. Foster care for older adults and/or people with disabilities may not be available in all states; and some jurisdictions may permit the provision of rehabilitation services, nursing care and other medical services. Some adult foster homes may specialize in providing care for adults with developmental disabilities, Alzheimer's disease, mental health issues or other specific conditions.
