|RULE §48.2913||Adult Foster Care|
To be eligible for adult foster care, applicants and clients must have the approval of the Community Care for Aged and Disabled unit supervisor and meet the functional need criteria as set by the department. The department uses a standardized assessment instrument to measure the client's ability to perform activities of daily living. This yields a score, which is a measure of the client's level of functional need. The department sets the minimum required score for a client to be eligible, which the department may periodically adjust commensurate with available funding. The department will seek stakeholder input before making any change in the minimum required score for functional eligibility.
