What are Care Homes?
Care homes can be residential homes, commercial facilities, or apartments. Whether they are called personal care homes, group homes for the disabled, youth group homes, assisted living facilities, or adult foster care homes, they are designed to provide 24/7 shelter (except day care), three daily meals, laundry services, grooming help, medication assistance, and help with any activities for daily living. Other activities may include exercise, religious services, outdoor trips, arts and crafts, and movie nights. 24/7 care home facilities many times are recommended by physicians, family members, social workers, hospital discharge planners, or even the individual. Many individuals having challenges staying home alone are ideal candidates for this program. Many of the individuals may be a danger to themselves. They may be falling, not taking their medication correctly, missing meals, and not bathing; however, many are energetic, smart, and still desire social interaction with others in a safe, clean, and loving environment. Having home care in a residential environment is an excellent alternative to a nursing home, or larger assisted living facility.
