What is the difference between an Adult Family Home and an Assisted Living Facility?
Most people know the term “Assisted Living” but may not have heard of Adult Family Homes before.

These highlights are important to know when searching for somewhere for your senior to call home. Here are a few of those general differences at a glance:
|Adult Family Home||Assisted Living Facility|
|Maximum of six residents||May have hundreds of residents|
|More personalized care and interaction||Some medical and ADL care available|
|Small group and independent activities available||Often have large group activities and entertainment available|
|Homes in regular neighborhoods||Apartment-style facilities|
|More of a “family” feel||More of a “community” feel|
