Adult Foster Care

Adult Foster Care is an option of care whose hallmark is a small "family" setting for up to four residents. Personal care services, such as assistance with eating, bathing, dressing and grooming are provided to residents. There is medication management as well as general supervision.

Although the vast majority of residents living in Adult Foster Care are private pay, Medicaid assistance is available on a limited basis. In Montana, the Home and Community Based Services Program, often called the Medicaid Waiver, is the only Medicaid source of payment for these services.
