What Are Adult/Family Care Homes?
Adult care homes are residences for aged and disabled adults who may require 24-hour supervision, medication management and/or assistance with personal care needs. These homes vary in size from family care homes of two to six residents to adult care homes of more than 100 residents.
These homes were previously called "domiciliary homes." Some people refer to them as "rest homes." The smaller homes, with 2 to 6 residents, are still referred to as family care homes.
What Services Are Provided?
Recently, adult care homes have not only undergone a change in name but also in their source of funding and expectations for staff training.
Medicaid is now a source of support for residents who qualify based on income and personal care needs.
