Foster Family Resources

Braley & Thompson Foster Family Forms and Resources

Professional Support Services for Children and Families Since 1979

Braley & Thompson has compiled the following forms and informational resources to assist you with locating and accessing the available resources for foster parents in the state of Virginia. Although family reunification is the priority for most children in the foster care system, our goal is to assist children and families with making the most progress possible during the child/children’s stay with you as a foster parent. Together, we are raising the next generation.

Medical, Dental and Physical Forms for Foster Care

Medical Treatment Form (routine medical care): If you are a foster parent and are taking your foster youth for medical treatment, print and take a copy of this form to every appointment. This form must accompany the child to every doctor, dentist, therapy, and medication management appointment and must be filled out at the time of the visit. Please have the doctor/dentist complete this form and turn it in to your case manager. **Please note: This is NOT the form for PHYSICALS. The PHYSICAL EXAMINATION REPORT must be used for physician’s examinations.

Physical Examination Report: Our foster youth need to have a physical within 45 days of their placement and then every year afterwards. This form needs to be taken with you when you take the foster youth for their physical. Make sure the doctor completes the WHOLE form. Sometimes they miss boxes, so please do not leave without checking to make sure it is fully completed.

Community Resources for Foster Families in Roanoke, VA

There are a wide variety of community resources available to provide foster families in Roanoke, Virginia and throughout our entire service area with the services that they need to help make the child/children’s stay with the foster family and the transition from foster care to permanency with the family as successful as possible. Family participation, social and community services, financial assistance, regular professional contacts with case workers, mental health professionals, and educational personnel all contribute to achieving a successful outcome by building a strong and independent family unit, while ensuring safety for all.

In some cases when family reunification with the biological parents is not possible, we will help determine if placement with a relative or adoptive family is an appropriate goal for our youth and guide you toward locating the appropriate resources to secure permanency with a relative or adoptive family.
