Adult Foster Care/ Homes for the Aged
The Adult Foster Care and Homes for the Aged Licensing Division provides licensing and regulation of adult foster care homes, homes for the aged and specialized programs for developmentally disabled and/or mentally ill individuals who reside in adult foster care homes.
For info on the most recent Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Epidemic Order (including Requirements for Residential Care Facilities and Testing in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Homes for the Aged, and Adult Foster Care Facilities), please visit the MDHHS Epidemic Order website. Questions on Epidemic orders can be sent via email MDHHS-MSA-COVID19@michigan.gov or you can call the general COVID hotline: 888-535-6136.
Special Note: The State of Michigan does not license assisted or independent living facilities. Please note, however, that a Home for the Aged or Adult Foster Care Home license may be required if the level of care provided at the facility meets the licensing requirements of one of these license types.
The Bureau is pleased to provide a new feature through GovDelivery which allows you to sign up for announcements and alerts from the Bureau of Community and Health Systems by specific provider types. Your information will not be shared.
