Frequently Asked Questions About Adult Foster Care
Similar to child foster care, adult foster care services offer shelter, daily meals, companionship and medical care for adults who find it hard to care for themselves on a daily basis. Also known as adult homes or adult day care centers, they typically attract the elderly and disabled who may be independent enough to provide basic care for themselves but require additional assistance by nursing and other staff for social programs, cleaning and bathing, and personal comfort. Here are some frequently asked questions that may come up in your search for adult foster care.

What kind of facilities do you offer?
While some adult foster care services are government-led and nonprofit, others are private companies that don’t rely on government funding. Private nursing homes and group homes may cost more than public ones that receive funding from the government, but they may feature more amenities and services.

What certifications do staff members have?
There are many professionals on staff within respite care and assisted living homes, from nurses and physical therapists to counselors and managers. Generally, providers must be licensed, with renewals coming up each year. In addition, each professional must boast his own credentials pertaining to his particular area of focus. Licensing and certification rules may differ by state. In general, for example, occupational therapists must have a college degree and must pass an exam to become licensed. They must also keep up with certifications through continuing education over the years.

What other services or amenities are offered?
Services may vary by adult foster care provider, but in general, most provide social services in the form of activities and programs, meals, first aid, public recreation areas, room and board, and therapy.

There are many women and men who work in adult foster care facilities. This can be a very rewarding field for many individuals. After all, as a care provider you get to learn all about physical and mental disorders, senior citizen rehabilitation, assisted living, and the respite you provide clients. Depending on what center or nursing home you work in, you may have to get involved with developmental challenges, vision impairment, and physical disability issues. It all depends on the services you offer and people you care for.

As you may already be aware, there is a certain level of knowledge required for working in an adult foster care center or facility. Regardless of whether you are assisting short term or long term clients, you may need a nursing degree beforehand. This can take two to four years to acquire. However, not all employees that work in assisted living facilities require degrees. You may just need the right on-site training in the beginning. This way you can learn more about proper supervision, social support, certain disability concerns, and basic provider care. Since the cost of adult foster care centers varies, so will your salary. Where you work, how much experience you have, and the level of care you provide will determine your pay rate.

You are likely to work with a variety of nurses, doctors, and other care providers any time you work in a adult foster care environment. You will also get involved with a number of clients each day.
