Spokane Washington Adult Family Homes
In Washington State, Adult Family Homes (also referred to as Adult Foster Care Homes) are
traditional homes in neighborhood settings where owner, resident manager and staff are
responsible for the safety and well-being of (typically) senior adult residents. The home census
is limited by Washington State law to 2-6 residents.
All Washington State Adult Family Homes are required to provide a room, meals, laundry and
adequate 24/7 staffing. (The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services
concedes that many AFH's find 24/7 awake coverage is necessary for appropriate levels of
care.). A qualified owner, resident manager or staff member authorized and able to make
needed decisions must be on-site 24 hours per day, seven days a week..
Beyond these baseline requirements, levels of care services will vary from Adult Family Home
to Adult Family Home. Additional services may include:
  • Nursing Care
  • Medication Management
  • Call Buttons
  • In-Home Medical and Dental Visits
  • In-Home Beautician and Barber Services
  • Activity Programs
  • Individually-Scheduled Transportation

The Washington State Adult Family Home licenses are renewed annually. The facility must
submit to a full, comprehensive inspection which assesses structural integrity, safe movement
and navigability features, fire safety (inside and out) and ease-of-access for first-responder
Washington State requires providers, resident managers, caregivers, staff and volunteers for
Adult Family Homes to submit to tuberculosis testing within three days of employment. Every
employee and volunteer at Adult Family Homes must undergo a Criminal History Background
Additionally, Washington State Adult Family Homes must follow an Infection Control System
and, collaboratively with resident and residents' families, construct a negotiated care plan within
the licensing guidelines.
Washington State Adult Family Homes are overseen by the Department of Social and Health
