Expert and compassionate care in residential homes:
Another term you will sometimes see for adult family homes is residential care homes. These homes are part of a regular neighborhood, usually indistinguishable from the other homes in the neighborhood. Care in residential homes in Washington state is provided in a single family home for up to six residents. They offer a homelike setting for seniors who need some supportive services, but do not want to live in a large assisted living community.
Also sometimes called board and care homes, this is an option for older adults who have no skilled medical needs such as a feeding tube or daily injections. The basic services that are provided are a private or shared room, all meals, assistance with activities of daily living as needed, medication reminders or dispensing, laundry, housekeeping and transportation services.
