Adult family homes, in the state of Washington, are residential care homes with 1 to a maximum of 6 residents, who live in a "family-homelike" setting, referred to as the "board and care" model.  This level of assistance, between "assisted living" and "nursing home care", allows seniors and disabled persons to stay in a setting that is similar to the home and family that they have been accustomed to.

Other states have "group homes", "senior room and board homes", "senior foster homes", and various other levels of group or assisted living.  One developing standard is the "Green House Project", proposed by Bill Thomas, through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, where residentsa re called "elders".

Small home care is provided by the trained home owner and a small staff, with one or more awake staff member in the home 24 by 7.  Regular visits by state inspectors and Registered Nurses on contract, complete the in-home care available to the senior residents.

Funding may be private-payment, or by medicare or medicaid, or through veterans' benifit programs.  Typical costs involved range from $2,000 to $6,500 monthly, per resident.  Please call one of us, on this website's CONTACTS page, for assistance or more information.
