Adult Family Homes

Adult family homes (AFH) are residential-style homes that accommodate a maximum of six senior residents at one time. They’re also known as adult care homes (ACH), adult foster homes, or residential care. Some are built expressly for the purpose, while others are retrofitted from existing homes to make sure they meet Washington state standards & requirements. As the name suggests, these adult family homes are made to replicate the comfort and environment of one’s own home.

The difference would be the existence of more advanced medical equipment depending on the residents’ needs, and medical staff such as live-in nurses or physicians who make occasional rounds and accept Medicare. Most homes accept Medicaid after a private pay criteria time frame is agreed upon with the senior and their family.

Adult family homes have the most flexibility in the amount of care offered, based on need. Some specialize in memory care, others focus on developmental disabilities, and other are simply a comfortable place with some like-minded peers and a nurse to remind you about your pills from time to time.

Excellent service, compassionate and friendly. A true angel!!!! Thank-you so much! Concierge Care Services helped me when I needed to find an affordable facility for my husband, quickly. They gave me accurate leads and negotiated a rate I could afford. Thank you so much.

Cynthia Jones, Google Review

Concierge Care, particularly Rose Fabrick, was so helpful in finding a place for our dad to live. I know she is busy but she always returned calls, had good suggestions and was always available on our schedule. I can’t say enough good things about the service she provided and even after our dad chose a place Rose hadn’t dealt with she still called to wish us well and gave us encouragement. I would recommend them for anyone needing an adult care facility.


I think you are great i loved all your post they are so helpful love you

I can’t say enough about Concierge Care and especially Rose Fabrick.  I needed to find a specific kind of home for a person in a short amount of time.  Rose was diligent, efficient and worked with the family to get the placement done.  Good job  Rose!!!!
