When adults with Developmental Disabilities are no longer able to live or be cared for in their own homes, adult foster care is an option. Adult foster homes (AFH) are single family residences that offer 24-hour care in a home-like setting.

The goal of an adult foster home is to provide necessary resident care while emphasizing the adult's 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.

Foster Care providers are required to comply with the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) requirements.  For more information on these requirements, follow this link: https://www.oregon.gov/DHS/SENIORS-DISABILITIES/HCBS/Pages/ODDS.aspx
