What is an adult care/foster home?

An adult care home is an Oregon DHS inspected, residential home, specifically designed to care for 5 or fewer adult “residents,” with either the owner or a resident manager living in the home. An owner may have a professional medical degree or training, such as myself, but a great majority do not. We must all, however pass a background check, a training program and our homes must meet specific structural and safety standards.

Homes are classified as either level 1, 2 and 3, which indicate the degree of resident dependence a home can accept, level 3 homes requiring more qualified and experienced staff. Each resident has their own chart, kept up to date with administered medications, progress notes, care plans and the like.

We work with the physician and hospital who may provide visiting RN’s, physical therapists, occupational therapists or occasional, the M.D., depending on the system and resident needs.
