Licensing and Regulatory Affairs
The Residents Rights for both Family Homes and Group Homes explain a resident's rights while living in an Adult Foster Care Home. These rights must be read to each resident and a copy of the rights offered to each resident at or before admission to a facility.
Homes for the Aged are required to adopt and provide to each resident at admission, and publicly post in the facility, a policy describing the rights and responsibilities of residents. Residents must be treated in accordance with the policy.
To make a complaint regarding the violation of Resident Rights contact the Bureau of Community and Health Systems, Children and Adult Licensing Complaint Intake Unit at 866-856-0126 or see Complaints for specific details.
To make a complaint regarding the abuse, neglect or exploitation of an adult contact Adult Protective Services at 800-996-6228.
