Adult Foster Care


Adult foster homes are designed to serve individuals who need assistance due to developmental or physical disability, brain injury, mental health issues or concerns related to aging. Providers ensure that clients get needed assistance with activities of daily living and other supports to live as independently as possible in the community. Assistance may also be needed with personal care, independent living skills, medication administration and/or safeguarding cash resources.

  • We are always interested in talking with potential providers
  • Call if you or a loved one are seeking foster care
  • 507 328-6400 and ask to speak with the Adult Foster Care Social Worker
