Residential care homes are known by different names depending on where you live.

Often referred to as independent senior living, independent livingadult family homes, personal care homes, adult foster homes, group homes, or board and care homes. Typically they all have the same things in common: they provide care for seniors in a homelike setting that’s very much like a family.

This type of setting is excellent for residents who do not want to live in a larger community setting but still require a level of assistance similar to that offered by an Assisted Living or a Nursing Home.

The staff in a residential care home may assist with medications, help residents bathe, get dressed and perform many other daily tasks or activities of daily living.

Rates are usually charged per month. The monthly charge typically includes three meals per day, utilities, housekeeping, laundry services, activities, and possibly transportation. Care level charges will be determined after the resident’s needs have been assessed by the owner or operator.
