Service Description

Adult Foster Care homes provide sleeping accommodations and services for one to five adults and are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS). The rooms may be private or shared and the dining areas, bathrooms and other spaces are shared family style. Adult foster care homes can offer a wide array of services, which may include providing personal care, household and living skills assistance or training, medication assistance and assistance in safeguarding cash resources.

Adult Foster Care homes that serve adults that are 55 years old or older can be licensed for 1 to 5 beds. Adult Foster Care homes that serve adults that are between the ages of 18 and 54 years old can be licensed for 1 to 4 beds.

There are two types of Adult Foster Care: Family Adult Foster Care and Corporate Adult Foster Care. In Family Adult Foster Care, the license holder lives in the home and is the primary caregiver. In Corporate Adult Foster Care, the license holder does not live in the home and is not the primary caregiver. Trained and hired staff generally provide services. Corporate Foster Care providers delivering services to individuals on the Brain Injury (BI), Community Alternative Care (CAC) or Community Alternatives for Disabled Individuals (CADI) waivers, must also maintain a Foster Care facility license. Use the DHS Licensing Information Lookup to verify this provider has an active foster care license -
