I am very interested in starting an adult family care home or an adult foster care home in NYS. I am not aware of any such homes in my area and I guess it is because NYSDOH is so regulated that they don't allow it or make it very difficult to operate one because they can't regulate it. If anyone has any information and could pass it on to me I would greatly appreciate it. my email address is tshoppegirl@aol.com.

You need to contact the department of mental health & mental retardation , Montgomery Alabama, there is also an office in Huntsville. Montgomery is the main office. Commie Carter is the contact person. When I applied in 2007, that was the contact number. I hope this helps. Good Luck

My ultimate goal is to have a multi-complex facility with skilled nursing, assisted living, adult day care, child day care and respite care as well as independent living apartments. I am located in Tennessee.

Hi try www.1staccreditation.com they are 21st century health care consultants they helped me start my business a 2 years ago now I have skilled medical nurses and over 50 clients. All I had to do was send some information, a resume and take 2 courses on the web. They helped me with all of my questions and did a pre site survey prior to chap's (an accreditation body like jahco and acah) survey. I had no deficiencies and though I was nervous the survey went smoothly and of course I passed. I am in florida but they provide Service nation wide. I hope this helped

It depends on what the house will require as far as safety bars, toilet rises, beds, bedding and bathroom linens. Also make sure you check with your county licensor. You are required to have two months of operating costs available to you, either in savings or by a guaranteed loan. So I would say, we started with $18,000. I would have liked to of had at least $30,000. So we hadextra if we didnt fill right away. It is costly to run an adult Care homw. So make sure you budget for everything.

I have an existing 11 room AFL and would like to open a Adult Care Home. An Adult Care Home in this state can be licensed for a maximum of 5 residents. This type of home is approved to take Vent-Dependent Residents. Does anyone have experience with a home such as this? My wife is an RN and I am an Respiratory Therapist.

Have you considered opening a day care or other elder are type of website. SeniorCare.net provides some other senior care options here: www.seniorcare.net/senior-care-options/. There are many types of elder care. As the population ages, we find more and more seniors unwilling to move into an assisted living/nursing home facility because they prefer more freedom. By developing a facility with more freedom for seniors, you could come up with a unique business that attracts new clients.
