Frequently Asked Questions
What is an Adult Foster Care / Assisted Living Facility?
There are several types of licensed facilities that care for the needs of the elderly and/or handicapped. These facilities are licensed by the State of Michigan and can have as few as one resident in a home or up to 20 residents. Most homes are somewhere in between. All home, regardless of size, are staffed with caregiver(s) on a 24-hour basis.
What services are provided in Licensed Adult Foster Care/Assisted Living Homes?
Services provided can vary by home and typically include, but are not limited to:
- 24-hour personalized care
- Meal preparation-special diet included
- Assistance with personal care
- Assistance with daily living, such as laundry and housekeeping
- Health monitoring and medication administration
- Transportation services
- Social and recreational activities
What is the difference between Adult Foster Care Homes / Assisted Living, Independent Senior Living / Retirement Homes, Skilled Nursing Homes?
The difference is the level of care that is provided. The general rule follows the natural progression of aging, disease or disability. In an unlicensed setting, Independent Senior Living / Retirement Homes provide rooms or apartments with extra services such as meals, laundry, housekeeping, for purchase as needed. Adult Foster Care / Licensed Assisted Living Homes are licensed facilities that provide the next level of care, adding supervision, health and medication monitoring within a home like setting. Skilled Nursing Homes provide all levels of skilled medical care.
How much does it cost and will insurance cover any of it?
Like most things, the cost will vary depending on the amount and nature of the care provided. In an Adult Foster Care Home, some individuals may qualify for assistance with paying for all or part of it. Most Assisted Living Homes are private pay, but may accept Medicaid, Veteran’s Assistance, or Long Term Care Insurance. Insurance may cover all or part of their care in a Skilled Nursing Home, if they qualify, but does not cover Long Term Care.
