Choosing the Right Home

The first step in choosing the right Adult Foster Home is understanding the care needs of the individual being placed. This will help you determine what questions to ask.

How do you evaluate one Adult Foster Home from another?

Each Adult Foster Home is unique in its own way. Here are some questions to ask when touring a home:

  • What exactly is covered in monthly rent?
  • What Class level is the home?
  • What if my loved one requires a nurse?
  • Are the staff friendly? How are they trained? Is someone awake at night?
  • How are the meals prepared?
  • What are the House Rules in matters like visiting hours and other restrictions?
  • What is the environment like? Does it feel like home, or are there distracting noises, activities or odors? 
  • Is the house clean and free of clutter?
  • Will my loved one be required to move if their care needs increase?
  • Are there pets in the home?
  • What type of payment is accepted?

Many of these questions can be answered over the phone. This is a good way to determine which homes to visit and compare.
