Adult Family Care Homes (AFCHs)
Adult Family Care Homes (AFCHs) - is a residential home designed to provide personal care services to individuals still requiring assistance. The owner/provider must live in the home and offers personal service for up to 5 residents. Very similar services as an ALF, yet provides more one on one care. The resident is in a home-like setting residing in either a private or shared room (no more than 2 residents to a room allowed by State regulations). Inclusive services are meals, laundry, housekeeping, medication management and transportation to doctor appointments. There is always a caregiver on the premises at all times of the day and night. AFCHs can provide many levels of care for non-ambulatory residents including dressing, bathing, eating and continence issues. Some AFCHs can accommodate seniors with some levels of Alzheimer’s/Dementia. As with ALFs, assessments are updated regularly to ensure the resident continues to receive the appropriate care based upon his/her current needs.
