Adult Foster Care
Programs provide room and board and experienced personal care services in a residential setting for elders who have sufficient functional impairment
to require supervised living.
Non-institutional residences integrate a shared living environment with supportive services for residents, thereby offering an alternative to
nursing home placement for persons who have experienced some functional impairment but do not require constant supervision.
Eligibility requirements vary but are primarily based on income, rent is generally 30% of monthly income and usually includes utilities.
Contact housing authorities or private subsidized housing providers for more information.
Retirement communities provide both shelter and supportive services to elders, promote independence and social
interaction. Services are provided or coordinated that will lessen the burden of home upkeep and maintain optimal health.
Similar to any apartment, condominium, or single-family development, except that they provide special services. Many provide a full range of
activities that promote social contact among residents.
Provided in a variety of settings, including free-standing facilities, facilities close to or integrated with skilled nursing
facilities, components of continuing care retirement or independent housing complexes. Most consist of single or semi-private rooms.
