Every child should be able to live with mom or dad, but sometimes difficulties keep families apart. That's when you can help. Treatment foster care is home-based care for children and adolescents with significant emotional, behavioral, physical or medical challenges.
As a treatment foster parent licensed through Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Community Services, you will:
Provide a safe, nurturing family environment that emphasizes a positive approach to parenting.
Be an active member of a foster child's treatment team.
Provide day-to-day care as you would for your own children.
Provide medical/dental/vision care and any therapeutic services directed by the treatment team and/or medical personnel.
Ensure positive school attendance and work with the child's school to ensure good academic progress.
Set reasonable rules and help the child live by those rules through positive discipline.
Work with the agency to develop and implement a visitation plan appropriate for the child with the child's birth family/family of origin.
Meet with staff on a regular basis.
- Meet the agency's continuing education requirements.
