Adult Foster Care in Texas Law
Texas law provides for adult foster care of individuals unable to continue living independently in their own homes because of physical, mental or emotional disabilities.
Under Texas law providers and residents must live in the same household and share a common living area. Except for family members there can be no more than three adults in a foster home unless it is licensed by the state.
Normally, in an adult foster care environment the client pays the provider for room and board.
A license for an assisted living facility may be obtained from the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services. All healthcare professionals working in the home should have a current recognized license in their specialization from the Texas Department of Health.
Each assisted living facility that must be licensed must do so in the Texas and is out of the or County where the senior foster care home will be operated.
