Host providers should be ready for a visitor at any time. The State will likely show up unannounced at least once a year. We will come more often in order to provide training and support. However, we will always come announced unless we suspect a significant problem that can only be verified during an unannounced visit. We have mostly been very fortunate in serving individuals in the Host environment who have very dedicated fine Host providers. But as the certified provider, we are ultimately responsible for the care of all of the individuals we service…even on the Host environment…and we take that responsibility very seriously.
