Latest Revision of Adult Family Home Policies and Residency Agreement.
Everything Required for Licensing: Operate a High-End Senior Care Home—Even If You Are A "Newbie"!
As an AFH provider with over three decades of experience operating top-tier adult family homes in Seattle, I can confidently say that using a premium, custom-written set of policies and procedures has been instrumental to my success and prosperity, and one of the best investments I made.
Using free, boilerplate templates may seem like a cost-effective option at first, but they often lack the specificity and legal language necessary to protect you, your business, and your residents.
These custom-written Adult Family Home Policies and Residency Agreements ensure regulatory compliance and address the unique needs of your specific business. Additionally, well-written policies reflect your unique mission and values, setting your business apart from others and establishing trust with potential residents and their families. It also sends a clear message that you are a professional who is serious about providing high-quality care and following impeccable business practices.
In essence, while the initial investment in customized policies might appear costly, they are instrumental and vital pillars for a stable business operation and long-term success. The establishment of your business foundation promises enduring benefits and safeguards, contributing significantly to your peace of mind—an investment well worth its value.
Speaking from my experience as a founder and operator of multiple adult family homes in Seattle since 1990, I can attest to the firsthand advantages this robust set of policies and agreements have had for me and my business.
I am a Senior Program Manager for a large tech company and read many contracts as part of my job. I have to say you pulled off a "class-act" with your policies. They're easy to read and understand. I really like your "plain and friendly English" approach and style rather than the usual hard-to-read and unfriendly "legalese" used in traditional contracts. This is very approachable, easy to understand, and I actually enjoyed reading through it!

While there are some free sample forms and policies online, you should think twice. Having reviewed dozens of house rules, residency agreements, and other forms from many sources (including AFH trade associations), none come even close to what you should have in place for your operation and protection.
There is a free AFH Residency contract on the web, why not use that? First, you need a number of other policies and disclosures, none of which are included. Second, it was written as an example by DSHS attorneys, so although it meets the minimum licensing requirements, it was not written with your protection in mind - only basic compliance.
The law. It needs to comply with the numerous and complicated adult family homes regulations - not an easy task.
It needs to address the many types of challenges you can face in the course of dealing with residents, families, and visitors. Like if a resident stops paying for their care, dealing with disruptive visitors, preventing families from hiring your caregivers, leaving without notice, and more.
