Before the Youth Welfare Office places a child in a foster family, their home must be inspected to ensure a hazard-free and child-friendly environment. During such a home visit, the particular inspector must work on an extensive list of officially mandated items for a safe home for foster children.
The following foster care home inspection checklist allows social workers to go through all the items step by step. In doing so, they can also involve foster parents by immediately discussing failed inspection issues with them and planning corrective actions.
When inspectors use Lumiform's app and desktop software, they can automatically generate a report after each home visit to share with foster parents and supervisors immediately. There is also the option to schedule follow-up appointments to review failed inspection points.
