This report is the sixth in a series prepared by the Institute on Aging at Portland State University for Oregon’s Department of Human Services (ODHS) and examines a sample of Adult Foster Homes (AFHs) throughout the state. This study has four objectives: 1. Describe AFH characteristics, including staffing types, policies and monthly charges and fees. 2. Describe current residents’ health-related needs, service use and demographic characteristics. 3. Compare current results with prior Oregon surveys to identify changes and current trends. 4. Describe characteristics that might affect access, quality, or cost. Oregon has licensed adult foster homes (AFHs) as a type of community-based care (CBC) since 1986. The operators and staff of these small homes provide supportive services, personal care and supervision for up to five older adults and adults with physical disabilities. Most AFHs are modified single-family residences located in residential neighborhoods. The majority of owners live in their AFH and provide care for the residents.
