An adult family home is a residential home where up to six residents are being cared for.

An Adult Family Home provides more personalized care in a more home-like setting rather than having the feel of a large and impersonal facility.

Unlike referral agencies, which steer you toward the homes of their choosing, we provide you with the contact information of the homes that interest you, and give you the freedom to decide which of the homes you should contact.

You can directly contact Adult Family Homes in your area and filter them according to the services provided (based on the needs of your parent).

After learning a little bit about their home over the phone, you can schedule a tour with a few of the homes you feel most comfortable with.

Adult Family Homes are equipped to provide a wide range of services for the elderly. Most notable is the 24 hour care, with assistance of all activities of every day living. Most homes provide assistance for Dementia and Mental Health. Some homes are RN owned and operated.

Adult family Homes provide as much or as little care as the resident requires. Residents that are more independent will be encouraged to use their abilities while those needing assitance will be helped more.

Most Adult Family Homes are either run by the owner (Provider) or they have a resident manager that oversees the house and a care staff that deals with the care and day to day activity of the home.

While each home is different, below you can see some general points that appear in a typical day. Residents are assisted with dress and grooming before serving breakfast. Rooms and laundry are cleaned. Activities and exercises are encouraged. Toileting may take place either before or after meals. Lunch is served followed by a time of relaxation or more organized activities and games. In the evening there is dinner and the day begins to wind down by watching one's favorite show before being assisted with the bedtime routine.

Families can visit as much or as little as they please. Family interaction is to encourage and the Adult Family Home coordinates contact between family and resident.
