When it’s time to find a long term care home solution for your senior loved one in Marysville, MyAFH is here to help! We specialize in long-term care facilities in our network, and we have several here in Burien and the surrounding areas that specialize in a variety of home care services.
The most common need for long-term care service for many elder adults is assistance with ADLs, or activities of daily living. ADLs might consist of bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting, eating, and moving around their home or other environment—for example, getting out of bed and into a chair.
Long-term care can also include services such as meals, adult day supervision, or transportation services. If you are looking for an Adult Family Home for your loved one to provide long term care in Marysville, call at MyAFH today!

Caring for Adults with Alzheimers and Other Forms of Dementia
Sometimes the time arises when families can no longer care for their elderly loved one with Alzheimer’s disease at home. The person may need around-the-clock care, or they may be incontinent, aggressive, or wander a lot. You may not be able to meet all of his or her needs at home anymore. When that happens, you may want to look for a long-term care facility for your loved one.
This is not an easy choice to make for many families, as we may find it hard to be separated from a loved one. But moving the person to a long term care home, such as one of MyAFH’s Adult Family Homes, is often the best thing to do. It will give you greater peace of mind knowing that the person is safe and getting good care.
Choosing the right place is a big decision. It’s hard to know where to start. MyAFH is here to provide you with options, whether your senior loved one is living with dementia, or just needs more assistance for their daily activities. Give us a call today, and we can help you get started.

Who Needs Long-Term Care?
Everyone is different, so it can be difficult to predict when, how much, and what type of long-term care a loved one might need. There are a few factors that can increase the likelihood that a senior adult may need long-term care, such as:
- Age. The need generally increases as people get older.
- Gender. Women are often at higher risk than men, mainly because they typically live longer.
- Marital status. Single people are more likely than married people to need care from a paid provider.
- Lifestyle. Unhealthy life habits can increase a person's risk of needing long-term care.
- Health and family history. These factors also affect risk.
