A furlough may only be granted to enable the resident:
(1) To meet an emergency situation, such as death or critical illness of a member of his or her family;
(2) To obtain medical care not available in a facility maintained by the department;
(3) To seek employment or training opportunities, but only when:
(a) There are scheduled specific work interviews to take place during the furlough;
(b) The resident has been approved for work or training release but his or her work or training placement has not occurred or been concluded; or
(c) When necessary for the resident to prepare a parole plan for a parole meeting scheduled to take place within one hundred and twenty days of the commencement of the furlough;
(4) To make residential plans for parole which require his or her personal appearance in the community;
(5) To care for business affairs in person when the inability to do so could deplete the assets or resources of the resident so seriously as to affect his or her family or his or her future economic security;
(6) To visit his or her family for the purpose of strengthening or preserving relationships, exercising parental responsibilities, or preventing family division or disintegration; or
(7) For any other purpose deemed to be consistent with plans for rehabilitation of the resident.
