Service Details

Description

The adult foster care service covers the provision of protection, supervision, household services, help with living skills or training and support for safeguarding cash resources. Foster care services are individualized and based on the needs of the person, as identified in the support plan.


There are two types of Adult Foster Care:
* Family Adult Foster Care - In Family Adult Foster Care the license holder lives in the home and is the primary provider of care.
* Corporate Adult Foster Care - In Corporate Adult Foster Care the license holder does not live in the home and is not the primary provider of care. Trained and hired staff generally provide services. Corporate Foster Care providers delivering services to individuals on the Brain Injury (BI), Community Alternative Care (CAC) or Community Access for Disability Inclusion (CADI) waivers, must also maintain a Foster Care facility license.


In Minnesota there is not a service called "group home." When the term "group home" is used, it is usually referencing the corporate adult foster care service.


Additional Information

Residential-based homes can provide up to 24-hour supervision depending on the needs of the individual. A Brighter Living Experience (ABLE) operates 15 residential facilities throughout the Houston County area. Each home is customized to meet the unique needs of the people supported.


The services provided by ABLE encourage individuals to participate in decisions and choices which affect their daily lives. ABLE helps each person maintain independence and gain a sense of self-direction while ensuring that a reliable and nurturing support network is available.
