4.52 Personal Care Home/Family Care Home



Practice Guidance


  1. If, under exceptional circumstances, the SSW, FSOS and the family’s team determine that a personal care home or family care home best meets the placement needs of a child, the SSW requests written approval from the Service Region Administrator, or designee, for a placement of up to six (6) months. 
  2. If the family’s team evaluates the placement during periodic reviews and determines that it continues to meet the child’s needs, the SSW may request a written approval for an extension of the placement.
