Our Michigan adult foster care home lawyers represent AFC home residents and their families in cases against the owners, operators, and managers at those homes. There are strict laws and regulations in Michigan to protect the safety and welfare of these residents. Unfortunately, many adult foster care home residents do not always receive appropriate care and the results can be severe and are often even deadly. We help bring justice to those residents in their families when injury or death occurs.
Adult Foster Care (AFC) homes are residential settings that provide 24-hour personal care, protection, and supervision for individuals who are developmentally disabled, mentally ill, physically handicapped or aged who cannot live alone but who do not need continuous nursing care. AFC Homes are restricted to providing care to no more than 20 adults at one time. Care that is provided often includes assistance with bathing, grooming, dressing, eating, walking, toileting or the administration of medication.
