Foster home care -- Oregon, Older people -- Care -- Oregon
This report describes adult foster homes in Oregon. An adult foster home (AFH) is a type of licensed community-based care (CBC) setting that provides residential, personal care, and health-related services, primarily to older adults. The study collected information from adult foster homes to achieve the following four main goals.
- Describe adult foster home characteristics, including staffing types and levels, policies, and monthly charges and fees
- Describe current residents’ health and social characteristics
- Compare current results to prior Oregon surveys and to national studies of similar setting types to identify changes and possible trends
- Compare setting types for differences that might affect access, quality, or costs
The study findings are intended to provide information that state agency staff, legislators, community-based care providers, and consumers may use to guide their decisions. Providing state-level information was one of the goals of Oregon’s LTC 3.0 planning process.
