Adult Foster Care
A Nurturing Family Environment
for Seniors and Adults with Disabilities

Individuals who can no longer live alone and need assistance with the activities of daily living generally prefer to remain in a home-like setting. Adult Foster care may be the right solution.

Through the Adult Foster Care Program, qualified trained caregivers open their homes to the elderly and the disabled needing round the clock assistance and care.

In addition to providing individualized care, Adult Foster Homes also address each person's emotional and spiritual needs. These home-like settings offer a variety of daily activities and promote family visits and continued connection to community life including church services, senior centers and adult day health services.

In these safe, affordable settings, individuals in need of care will enjoy a nurturing atmosphere and inclusion in the home life of the caregiver and their family. Up to four individuals may live as part of the family in each of these private Adult Foster Care homes, certified by the Arizona Department of Health Services.

Adult Foster Care homeowners are special individuals who are dedicated to providing high quality care and who are willing to share their homes with those needing assistance. Our Adult Foster Care Homes are contracted with two providers designated by Arizona Long Term Care Services (ALTCS) plans, but they may also choose to take private pay residents.

The Foundation for Senior Living (FSL) carefully screens and trains individuals who are interested in opening their homes for Adult Foster Care. Each caregiver is required to complete FSL's Assisted Living Training Program for caregiver certification. The Arizona Department of Health Services certifies these homes and monitors for compliance with Assisted Living Facility rules and regulations.
