HOW LONG DOES THE ENROLLMENT INTO AN ADULT FAMILY HOME TAKE?
If all the information is complete on the enrollment form and the required documents are received (discharge papers from hospital, Power of Attorney papers, medication list, nurse assessment, etc.), then the process goes very quickly and can often be put in place in the same day.
CAN MY LOVED ONE KEEP THEIR CURRENT PRIMARY CARE PROVIDER?
All of our residents keep their Primary Care Provider. They can choose to use our on-call visiting physician if it is more beneficial for them.
HOW DOES THE SERVICE WORK?
Florida AFH works to provide 24/7 care for your loved one. This includes housing, meals, medication management, healthcare needs, physical activities, hair, nail, and podiatry needs and many of the other basic in-home needs. We have caregivers on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
DO YOU COORDINATE CARE WITH HOSPICE?
Yes. Florida AFH works closely with the registered nurses and other ancillary staff from Hospice to help provide a well-rounded continuum of care for our residents.

WHAT IF CONCERNS ARISE WITH THE PROVIDER OR STAFF IN THE HOME?
Many families feel that their only recourse for unheard concerns is to contact Adult Protective Services. Florida AFH prides itself on customer service. Advocating for the resident and family for all of their needs and concerns are of utmost importance. Dealing with a provider and staff can be very uncomfortable and Florida AFH helps mediate any concerns. Peace of mind is our ultimate goal.
