Board and Care Facilities

The loss of independence can be quite upsetting for most seniors, however in a Board and Care setting, a person can get the assistance they need in an environment that most closely resembles their own home. Board and Care or Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE), also known as Boarding Homes, Group Homes and Micro-Communities, are typically in private homes located mostly in residential neighborhoods. Living with several other peers can also afford residents a sense of family and more opportunities for social interaction, as opposed to in-home care.

A Board and Care facility functions much like a Nursing Home or an Assisted Living facility, in that they provide assistance with activities of daily living such as:

  • Preparing meals
  • Housekeeping
  • Dressing
  • Grooming & Bathing
  • Ambulation
  • Toileting
  • Medication Management
