Statement of Purpose


(1)

The rules in OAR chapter 411, division 360 prescribe the standards and procedures for the licensure of adult foster homes for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (AFH-DD).

(2)

These rules incorporate the provisions for home and community-based services (HCBS) and settings set forth in OAR chapter 411, division 004 to ensure individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities receive services in settings that are integrated in and support the same degree of access to the greater community as people not receiving HCBS.

(a)

An AFH-DD provider initially licensed on or after January 1, 2016 must meet the requirements in OAR chapter 411, division 004 prior to being licensed.

(b)

An AFH-DD provider licensed prior to January 1, 2016 must make measurable progress toward compliance with the rules in OAR chapter 411, division 004 and be in full compliance by September 1, 2018.

(3)

An AFH-DD facilitates individual choice regarding services and supports, and who provides the services and supports, through a cooperative relationship between the AFH-DD provider, the individual, the legal or designated representative of the individual (if applicable), and the Community Developmental Disability Program.

(4)

An AFH-DD protects and encourages the independence, dignity, choice, and decision making of the individual while addressing the needs of the individual in a manner that supports and enables the individual to achieve optimum physical, mental, and social well-being and independence.
