In Washington State alone, there are more than 2, adult family homes; all are regulated and licensed by the Department of Social and Health Services in Washington and the Department of Human Services in Oregon. This makes it a great option for someone who requires more one-on-one attention because of the lower resident-to-caregiver ratio. All providers and staff must be certified in the fundamentals of caregiving, first aid, and CPR.
