There are three classifications of adult foster home licenses in Oregon. The classifications are based on the experience and/or training of the provider. Each home has a license posted that indicates the classification of the home.
- A licensee with a Class 1 license may only admit residents who need assistance in no more than four activities of daily living (ADLs).
- A licensee with a Class 2 license may provide care for residents who require assistance in all activities of daily living, but require full assistance in no more
than three activities of daily living.
- A licensee with a Class 3 license may provide care for residents who require
full assistance in four or more activities
of daily living.
In each classification, the provider can only admit residents with a certain number of impairments. These impairments are defined according to
six major activities of daily living (ADLs). These are eating/nutrition, dressing, personal hygiene, mobility, toileting and behavior management.
