Adult Family Homes “AFH”

These are residential homes licensed to care for up to six non-related residents. The level of care each home provides will vary. Some adult family homes are operated by nurses, or hire nurses or other appropriately licensed staff to support a resident’s need. Others may specialize in the care of residents with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. All adult family homes are required to have a current assessment of the client and a plan of care reflecting not only the needs of the resident, but their preferences in how they would like to receive those services.   All AFH owners and their staff undergo significant training before being able to work directly with clients. Further, they must keep up with training and best practices in care by completing a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education per year.   Standard Care Services Include:

  • Private and semi-private rooms
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Personal care and hygiene
  • Companionship and conversation
  • Activity programs
  • Housekeeping and gardening
  • Beautician/barber and nail care

Specialty Care Services:

  • 24-hour specialized care
  • Dementia/Alzheimer’s
  • Stroke and Diabetes care
  • Rehabilitation services
  • Home doctor visits
  • Palliative care and hospice
  • Assistance with/or administering medication
  • Respite Care

– In the Puget Sound alone there are more than 4500 AFH’s.   – Generally, there are two kinds of AFH’s:   Houses that were remodeled to meet the licensing criteria to become AFH’s. Houses that were built specifically to be AFH’s. Those tend to be bigger, larger hallways – dining area – rooms – shower rooms, most rooms have a private bathroom, social/activities rooms, etc. Overall more square footage.

NOTE – Some of the above care facilities are contracted with Medicaid, some are not. It is crucial to know what happens if a resident is running out of money. The facilities that are contracted with Medicaid, they set their own rules on how long someone needs to pay privately before they switch to Medicaid benefits. The range is between 6 months to 6 years. Some Medicaid contracted facilities accept new residents who are already on Medicaid.
