Adult foster home care in Oregon
When elderly people or adults with physical disabilities are no longer able to care for themselves in their own homes, adult foster care is an option. Adult foster homes are single family residences that offer 24-hour care in a home-like setting.
The goal of an adult foster home provider is to provide a resident's necessary care while emphasizing his/her independence, choice dignity and decision making. AFH caregivers also provide friendship and the opportunity for the resident to reside in a safe and caring environment.
