THE STATE OF MICHIGAN APPROVED CURRICULUM

  

To comply with certification Rule 330.1806(2)(3)(4) direct care staff providing resident care must be trained using either the approved curriculum, " Providing Residential Services in Community Settings: A Training Guide" or an approved alternative curriculum. The Providing Residential Services curriculum is the approved curriculum for direct care staff that work in adult foster care homes that are licensed to provide services to individuals that have a mental illness or a developmental disability.

The components of individual topics within the curriculum have evolved as standards relating to the care of adults have advanced. Due to this fact, current standards and practices applicable to direct care staff training for certified facilities must be used. For example: Providing Residential Services references the Food Guide Pyramid whereas current USDA Dietary Guidelines use MyPlate.
