Become a Licensed Adult Family Home Provider

Licensing Package

Transitioning a residential home to a licensed adult family home (AFH)? Turn to Proactive Solutions, LLC in Olympia, WA to cover all your bases. My licensing package is beneficial to clients who are unfamiliar with the AFH licensing requirement. This will help clients who have little to zero knowledge about setting up and operating business/care systems as well. It has three stages and is invoiced per phase. Whether you’re getting the entire package or selecting specific phases, don’t hesitate to call me today.

Phase One

To identify and solve problem areas, a thorough pre-licensing home and property inspection will be conducted. If you don’t have a home picked out, don’t fret. I will look at potential homes online with you and discuss the transition from the home to an AFH. This stage also involves:

  • Consultation on the next steps in preparation to be a small business owner and opening an AFH
  • Contacting your local building official to determine the process and potential costs to complete the Local Building Official Checklist
  • Meeting with the contractor who is remodeling the home to ensure modifications are completed according to building code specifications

Phase Two

To further prepare your business for licensing, I will be working closely with you in:

  • Setting up operational systems such as medication, resident admission, and hiring staff
  • Developing a policy/procedure manual
  • Setting up and organizing business and care records
  • Setting up the property for AFH licensure
  • Completing and submitting the AFH Licensing Application
  • Preparing for the AFH Initial Licensing Inspection with the Department

Phase Three

This stage ensures that you are on the right track as a newly-licensed provider. It includes:

  • Reviewing the resident record(s) and admission for your first two residents
  • Reviewing staff records—inclusive of training, background checks, orientation, etc.—when hiring your first two staff
  • Reconcile the resident’s medications
