Adult Family Home Renton
Seeking reviews of an Adult Family Home or nursing home for your loved one in Renton can be a daunting task. With the myriad of elder-care possibilities, it can be a distressing and confusing process. The sheer size of the healthcare industry alone can make treatment placement an intimidating and lengthy challenge.
Renton Elder Care in King County seeks to bring clarity and peace of mind to the stressful life decision of choosing among adult family homes for your loved one. Our skilled adult family home is unlike many nursing facilities, as we work to provide 24/7 home-care for your loved one in a homey, smaller setting than many nursing and rehabilitation facilities. When we think of a “nursing home,” images of hospital corridors and lonely, elderly residents often comes to mind. Adult Family Homes are an alternative, and offer residents a comfortable long term senior living option.
An adult family home is a more personalized alternative to a larger facility, such as a nursing home or assisted living facility. Adult family homes host no more than six residents, meaning your loved one will be part of a small, family-like community and receive personalized care. Adult family homes can also be more affordable than a large facility, and we work with families and homes to find the best adult family home match for you and your loved one.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN ADULT FAMILY HOME?
- Private home in residential neighborhood
- Home is optimized to meet needs for senior care
- Homes house no more than six residents
- Residents have the chance to socialize with one another or live more independently
- Each resident has own room
- Each resident care customized to their own needs
- Each resident receives assistance with activities of daily living as needed
- Low care provider-to-resident ratio
- Family meals served together
- Loved ones may visit residents
- The number of Adult Family Homes in Renton is growing monthly, so finding just the right fit is closer than you think!
This high level of care received in Adult Family Homes is due to the favorable caregiver-to-resident ratio, which is typically one or two staff providing care for six residents or fewer. In Assisted Living Facilities, this ratio is often one staff to 12 residents or greater.
At our Renton Washington location we are different as we provide:
- Highly personal care, small ratio of staff to residents
- Fully devoted, live-in staff, 24/7
- Home-care nursing
- Small number of residents
- RN and home doctor on call.
- Transportation services
- Pharmacy delivery

Adult Family Homes in Renton
When you are thinking, “Where is the best nursing home for mom in Renton?” consider us first. MY AFH Adult Family Homes in Renton work to provide 24/7 attention for your loved one. This includes housing, meals, medication management and reviews, rehabilitation needs, healthcare needs, assisted physical activities and many of the other basic in-home needs in Renton.
Our Adult Family Homes in Renton have skilled caregivers on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Rather than the larger atmosphere of institutional nursing homes, AFH has comfortable facility homes settings with a small number of senior residents.
An AFH provides care for a maximum of six senior adults. This makes an Adult Family Home a great option for your loved one who needs more one-on-one attention, since an AFH has a much lower care professional-to-resident ratio.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR AFH CARE PROVIDERS?
All care providers and AFH staff are required to do the following:
- Be certified in first aid and CPR
- Fundamental caregiving certifications
- Official qualifications for the specialized services that an individual Adult Family Home wishes to offer
- Care providers must also annually complete continuing education credits to keep their certification current
Each Adult Family Home is unique with its own specializations and home personality. The owner of the AFH or team of care providers chooses the level of care provided in their home. Some Adult Family Homes prefer to care for adults who are physically frail, while others may choose to cater to residents who need memory care or dementia services. Adult Family Homes may be operated by medical professionals, such as doctors and nurses, or para-professionals, such as Certified Nursing Assistants, or other caregivers. Therefore, there is a broad spectrum of knowledge and experience within the AFH community.
Some AFHs are operated by a single proprietor or a married couple who live in the home with residents. Other Adult Family Homes are run by companies who hire care and medical staff to cover 24-hour shifts.
Although some AFHs may admit adults as young as 18 years old, most homes are designed for elderly residents; the average age of residents in Adult Family Homes is between 40 and 80 years old. Around three percent more of the residents in AFHs are female on average.
In a home-like setting with a state minimum of one caregiver for five or six residents, many homes go above and beyond. This makes Adult Family Homes ideal for people who have less predictable care needs. They are able to extend care to residents whose needs vary during both the day and evening or those whose needs vary daily.
Services we provide include this and more:
- Comfortable, “home like,” safe housing in Renton
- Nutritious, dietary custom meals
- Medication management
- Healthcare needs
- Physical activities
