When the county board elects to provide adult foster care services, the county board shall offer adult foster care services to the residents or prospective residents of an adult foster home. Adult foster care services may be provided directly by the county of financial responsibility, or by the service agency under a written agreement with the county of financial responsibility, or by another agency under contract to the county of financial responsibility.
If the resident or prospective resident requests and receives adult foster care services, then the service agency shall develop, and the resident, resident's legal representative, and the operator shall agree on and sign an individual resident placement agreement as defined in part 9555.5105, subpart 19. The agreement must be signed within 30 days of placement and be coordinated with the adult's individual service plan as defined in part 9555.5105, subpart 18. The service agency shall give a copy of the individual service plan to the operator. If the resident is appropriate for adult foster home placement and does not require adult foster care services, the individual resident placement agreement shall be developed by the operator, resident, and resident's legal representative under part 9555.6167.
The service agency assigned to a resident in an adult foster home with an individual service plan must:
visit the resident and operator within 30 days of placement to confirm the appropriateness of the placement;
provide consultation services to the operator in meeting the resident's assessed needs;
provide a telephone number where caregivers and the resident or resident's legal representative may call for emergency social service assistance 24 hours a day; and
