What are Care Homes?
Care Homes, also referred to as adult family homes or a “home away from home”, are a form of Assisted Living designed to help seniors with the Activities of Daily Living (cooking, cleaning, grooming, toileting, transferring in/out of bed/chairs, etc). Care Homes are located in residential areas and look like normal homes from the outside. Typically these homes care for 5 to 10 seniors and provide more individualized attention to each resident. They differ from large Assisted Living communities which serve up to 100 or more senior residents.
If you or your loved one needs personalized care and assistance with daily living, Care Homes are an excellent option.
