Adults who are entering foster care depend on many people to help them transition to their new home. The foster care provider plays a big role in helping residents get acclimated and feel like a part of the household.
As an adult foster care provider, you will be a part of a team supporting an adult placed in your home. Included in that team are:
The Licensing Worker who helps you through the licensing process and is available for ongoing support and consultation.
The Case Manager works with their client and his/her team to create an individual plan for the client. The plan may include some goals for the client to work on with the foster parents help.
The Guardian is someone appointed to make decisions such as medical, financial or help decide an appropriate place for their client to live
The client's family may give input for their loved one's individual plan or visit their loved one at the foster home or have the loved one come back home for a visit.
Other agency and community professionals working with the adult and family.
