I do not know how it works in Arizona, but you can start by contacting the Department of Human Services, or the Stata office of Adult Foster Care Licensing. You will need your own capital if the state is not providing you with start up funds, and you will also need a house, but you can rent ther house from someone. The house has to be licensed by state of Arizona. Try the Stae of Arizona's web site, it should be able to direct you to the correct department that could assist you.

Yes, I would do that. But I first need to FIND an administrator. That's the issue. How to find a live-in person to live-in and run a family-owned Adult AFC home.

Place an ad on the healthcare association website. Please do not forget the 55 + program in your area that seeks to place seniors in employment.

Talk with local pastors/adult classes, physicians, attorneys, bank managers, accountants - people who are in a position to know when someone elderly needs care. Word of mouth!!!

You should join one of the elderly care company. The give you patients for a fee. Consider joining a caregiver group with people who have sick family members you never know one might be a patient in the near future.

I do not know what state you are located, but in Florida, it is illegal to pay someone for placement. The fee is considered a "kickback". You may also want to contact guardians, geriatric care managers and check to see if there is a brain and spinal cord program in your state. The program maybe under the department of health.

Sallie in Roseburg, Oregon

I am going to open a adult foster home next year. I would like to know if anyone uses a food delivery service like the restaurants do? Years ago I was a dietary manager in a nursing home and found the prices reasonable and the food good. I am not talking about a pre-made meal, just food items to make the meal. I would think it would be a great idea but I have no currant knowledge regarding prices now. Any feed-back would be greatly appricated, Sallie
