Adult Family Homes in Washington are a form of senior housing that are licensed by the government and held inside residential homes within neighborhoods. Unlike the “home”-setting of other forms of senior living, Adult Care Homes are actual houses. This aesthetic appeal alone causes many seniors to seek these out and it’s noticeable in their rising popularity. Many more of these homes are appearing all over the state due to the fact that the government does not limit which homes can convert into these residences.
Adult Family Homes in Washington are run by licensed gerontologists or nurses and, although they are technically a business, the government treats them like normal residences. These homes must meet all the requirements of senior care needs including easy navigation for people with handicaps or disabilities and, if they offer memory care, the proper medical credentials. In addition, theses homes are limited to six adult residents.
Undoubtedly, one of the biggest appeals to living in these homes is the six resident policy. This means that your loved one receives close, attentive, and personal care since the staff are not divided by some 100-200 residents.
The level of senior care offered is fairly moderate with some homes specializing in Dementia or Alzheimer’s. Contact Concierge Care Advisors if you need help finding memory care within Adult Care Homes.
Adult Family Homes in Washington Include:
