Residential Home for the Aged
Communities classified as “Residential Home for the Aged” offer a smaller, more home like setting for seniors. Residents enjoy similar amenities to Assisted Living Communities with limited medical care in a more social environment.
These facilities provide their residents with room and board as well as assistance with personal needs, such as eating and grooming. Someone who lives in a home for the aged must be physically and mentally capable of finding his way to safety in the event of an emergency without assistance
from someone else.
Homes for the aged are neither staffed nor licensed to provide nursing care. In fact, state law prohibits homes for the aged from accepting residents who need medical care. They’re designed to provide a place where people who are able to care for themselves with little or no help may receive room, board and personal services.
