Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Residential Care Home?  Residential Care Homes service a much needed segment of the senior population. They can provide outstanding service to seniors requiring significant assistance with activities of daily living and provide far greater than the average level of care supported by the typical assisted living community.   The Residential Care Home typically provides a caregiver to resident ratio of 1 to 6. Most importantly, their cost structure allows them to care for seniors who have far less money than that required by Skilled Nursing Facilities and Assisted Living Facilities.  The pricing is  typically all-inclusive and does not have a separate charge for level of care.

 What is Aging-in-Place?  Aging in place is a term used to describe an elderly person living in the home of their choice. This includes being able to have any services they might need in their daily life, while maintaining their quality of life.
