Adult Foster Care
In Indiana MENTOR’s Adult Foster Care program—also known as Host Home—adults and seniors with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities, as well as traumatic brain injuries, live in private family homes with dedicated caregivers who we call Mentors. We use the term “Mentor” because the people who open their homes become so much more than care providers. They are advocates, teachers, friends, and family.
Backed by our experienced human services professionals, our Mentors deliver personalized services to help individuals live life to the fullest. Our Host Home program includes:
- Community integration
- Program evaluation & quality improvement
- Family involvement and support
- Medication management oversight
- Opportunities for day programs & structured activities
- Around-the-clock support
- Life skills development
- Assistance with daily activities
- Transportation to community-based services
In partnership with our Mentors, the individuals, and their families we develop Individualized Service Plans (ISPs) and continually adjust services as individuals reach new goals or their needs change.
In our Adult Foster Care program we look at the needs, skills and personalities of individuals and Mentors to create a successful match—one that leads to a meaningful, long-term relationship. In addition to personalized support, our Mentors provide individuals with countless opportunities to take part in everyday activities of family life, such as:
