No matter the type of audit – State Licensing, Recipient Rights, waiver, or Community of Mental Health organizations – this course is designed to create organization and efficiency. When the time for an audit arrives, you will be ready and confident.

The thought of an audit can sometimes trigger panic and anxiety.

In this course we empower you or your staff with the knowledge and strategies to proactively stay prepared at all times, eliminating the need for last-minute stress or worry.

Nadine Carlson

Co-Founder and Consultant for Care Provider Solutions.

My passion is to help owners and operators reduce the stress associated with running and operating Specialized Licensed Adult Foster Care homes. I understand that running an AFC home and meeting the expectations of various audits can be overwhelming. Over my 12 years of owning and operating multiple award-winning homes, I have successfully completed countless audits, learned the processes to stay compliant between audits, and achieved success every time.

Many AFC home owners experience anxiety due to the stress of motivating staff and staying compliant. You don’t have to figure out the process alone. I can help provide you with peace of mind and minimize the time associated with audit administration, allowing you to focus on enriching and enhancing not only your life but also the lives of your staff and residents in your homes.
