Residential Care Homes

Residential care homes are licensed to accept a maximum of ten residents at a time. These types of senior care communities provide a familiar home-like atmosphere and a high level of personal and direct care services. In fact, residents may share the home with the operator’s family and have the opportunity to interact with multiple generations on a regular basis. All of the residential care homes in our network must be licensed and in good standing by the Arizona Department of Health Services. This ensures that we only recommend high-quality communities and steer the families we serve away from low-quality or non-accountable options.

Often, because of the severity of an illness, or a decline in functioning, seniors cannot be placed in assisted living communities nor remain in their homes because their condition requires consistent personal or hands-on care and diligent attention. This could include a need for assistance with mobility issues, incontinence, or advanced medical conditions like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s. In these circumstances, transitioning to a senior residential care home can be an appropriate option. Residential care homes can also be a suitable alternative for seniors who are hesitant to move into a larger facility and would appreciate the intimate setting.

Residential care homes are also known as:

  • Group homes
  • Board and care homes
  • Adult family care homes
  • Personal care homes
  • Residential assisted living homes
  • Adult foster care homes
  • Senior care homes
  • Assisted living homes

Residential Care Homes are defined as single-family homes in residential communities that have been converted into care facilities for 5-10 residents. These homes provide 24/7 personalized care and support for seniors who require moderate to high levels of care.

Benefits of Residential Care Homes

While residential care homes tend to provide less in the way of organized activities than larger assisted living facilities, the setting they offer is more intimate and the group dynamic is more family-like. Due to the high caregiver to resident ratio, residential care homes are able to quickly adapt to a resident’s changing care needs. Other benefits of residential care homes include:

  • Private or semi-private rooms
  • Intimate setting
  • 24-hour assistance and supervision
  • Home cooked meals
  • Housekeeping and laundry services
  • Home visits from physicians
