1  There was a slight increase in new cases in FY23 due to more placements through Adult Protective Services. Twenty-four cases closed from the prior year due to deceased client, transfer to long-term care or nursing facility, relocation out of county, etc. The program projects an increase in coming years based on past years' trends.
2  Adult Foster Care maintains the least restrictive alternative to institutionalization/nursing facility placement as a goal and has been successful in maintaining a very high percentage of clients in the community, thereby reducing the higher cost of institutional care.
