Using Medicaid to Cover Services for Elderly Persons in Residential Care Settings: State Policy Maker and Stakeholder Views in Six States. Adult Care Homes

12/01/2003

There are three types of Adult Care Homes, all of which are licensed as assisted living facilities:

  • Family Care Homes, which are licensed to serve two to six residents. In most other states, these homes are licensed as adult foster care homes. Many are private homes in residential areas. They are required to provide room and board, personal care, supervision, housekeeping and laundry, and "meaningful" activities.

  • Adult Care Homes, which are licensed to serve seven or more residents over the age of 18. They provide room and board, personal care, supervision, housekeeping and laundry, and social activities.

  • Group Homes for Developmentally Disabled Adults, which are licensed to serve two to nine unrelated adults.

The remainder of this section will focus solely on the adult care homes licensed to serve seven or more residents.
