Adult Family Homes

What is an Adult Family Home?

Adult family homes provide living for six or fewer residents and are licensed by the state. They are regular neighborhood homes where staff people assume responsibility for the safety and well-being of the residents. A room, meals, laundry, supervision and varying levels of assistance with care are provided.

Some provide occasional nursing care. Some offer specialized care for people with mental health issues, developmental disabilities or dementia. To explore an adult family home as an option, find out what kinds of services and supports are available at each home you are interested in.
