Adult Foster Homes (AFH) provide housing, services and assistance with activities of daily living to adults diagnosed with a qualifying mental illness. Providers or a resident manager live on site with the individuals they serve and assist with the activities of daily living. The capacity of an AFH is up to five residents per home.
AFHs are licensed annually. Additional inspections may be scheduled with or without advance notice to ensure continued compliance with the Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs) and Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS).
Each year, the provider, resident manager, and substitute caregiver of an Adult Foster Home must complete at least 12 hours of training directly related to the care and services for persons with mental illness.
Training must be documented in the provider, resident manager, and substitute caregiver's training records.
This training is in addition to any orientation which is attended by applicants prior to licensing, and includes but is not limited to:
