When Living at Home Alone is No Longer an Option
Small Residential Care Homes are ideal settings for individuals in need of assisted living but may not necessarily benefit from a large retirement community with a number of amenities they may not need or use.
Residential care homes provide care to persons unable to live wholly independently but not in need of the level of care and services provided in a nursing home. Toward that end, these regulations are designed to foster personal independence on the part of residents and a home-like environment in the homes.
Why Consider a Residential Care Home for a loved one?
- Small, intimate home like setting is important
- The resident is very private and may not be opened to participating in a multitude of activities that large senior retirement communities may offer.
- Privacy is very important
- The future resident is perhaps a bit younger in age and due to an ailment does not feel comfortable around other residents that are perhaps elderly compared to them.
What does a Residential Care Home offer?
Residential Care Homes are typically in residential communities. The care home maintains a state license for assisted living which permits them to care for people. Typically there are under 10 residents. There are many independently owned and operated care homes that are managed by a registered nurse or other health care professional.
