What is the difference between an Adult Family Home and an Assisted Living Facility? 

The term “Assisted Living” may be more widely known and more broadly defined than Adult Family Home. Both can be good options for your loved one, but there are a few key differences when choosing a place for your senior to call home. Below, here are few differences in general:

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

With homes in the community of Marysville, MyAFH runs a powerful network of senior home care communities, with flexibility for your loved one's specific needs. You may not be aware that in Marysville, large nursing homes, hospitals or an independent retirement community village are not your only choices. Adult family homes are an alternative option that may be perfect for your senior's needs for assisted living in Marysville!

Senior Living Marysville

The MyAFH owned assisted living home in Marysville, Washington is built to help seniors with memory conditions like Alzheimer's, along with mental health issues and developmental issues. Our staff can easily adjust and customize their assistance to what your senior specifically requires.

Assisted Living can be a good option for more active seniors who need minimal medical care and want the feeling of a larger community that comes with this type of facility. While Adult Family Homes are very versatile; there are many that also offer a lot of independence for senior adults who are still highly capable, while others may offer greater levels of medical care and assistance for those who need it, all in a small family home setting.

What is the difference between an Adult Family Home and a Nursing Home?
