Nadine Carlson-Adult Foster Care System Specialist Consultant

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 remember when we started opening AFC homes in 2010. Admitting a new resident without having all the information at move-in and during renewals was very frustrating. Multiple phone calls and unnecessary running around motivated us to take action to create a process to save time and create a reputation of being organized and professional.

Many AFC operators lose sleep at night thinking about how to get everything done in a day. My goal is to teach you the “Resident Admission and Management” processes that work. This will help you regain enthusiasm and time, allowing you to focus on enriching and enhancing your life, your staff’s lives, and the lives of the residents in your homes.
