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

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 everyday living. Most homes provide assistance for Dementia and Mental Health. Some homes are RN owned and operated.


How much care should my loved one anticipate from an Adult Family Home?

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

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.
