Ensuring Quality Care (EQC) - Adult Foster Care

Adult Foster Care

What is Adult Foster Care?

When elderly people or adults with physical disabilities are no longer able to care for themselves in their own homes, adult foster care may be an option. Adult foster homes are single-family residences that offer 24-hour care in a home-like setting. The goal of an adult foster home licensee is to provide care and services to residents while supporting their independence, choice and the right to make decisions.

Adult foster home licensees provide meals (including special medical-related diets), provide or arrange transportation to appointments and other activities, laundry, medication administration, and help with eating, dressing, bowel and bladder care, personal care, walking and/or getting out of a bed or a chair, and behavioral issues, as needed. They also provide friendship and the opportunity for residents to reside in a safe and caring environment.

 Ensuring Quality Care (EQC) Adult Foster Care Training

EQC for Adult Foster Home Providers is a 40-hour training required by the State of Oregon for all licensees, resident managers, floating resident managers and shift caregivers who intend to own, operate or work in APD-licensed adult foster homes. Upon successful completion of the EQC class, students will be eligible to take the state EQC exam. State EQC exam must be taken within 90 days of class completion.
