Adult Family Home Care

Care in Your AFH

HOME: the place we store our stuff. The house where we have lived most of our lives, perhaps raised our family. Where we curl up on our bed with our pillow, secure in comfort and memories. We think this home will be forever and day after day it appears to be so.

HOME on this website is the beginning place for research into building your own care business. You will need each of the elements offered below: the physical house, choosing the residents you will serve, the systems and program you will inaugurate, staff who will help you, marketing potential, connections with medical providers, the challenges of dementia and disability, the important paperwork you can’t avoid, and the agencies that will partner with you.

As we age, our concept of HOME may become altered. Here is the chair where we view retirement and review our finances; where we no longer get up as quickly as last year; where we begin to experience health issues. As caregivers, we can help families make their decisions about home.

FOR FAMILIES LOOKING FOR THE BEST HOME as their loved one experiences change, HOME describes possible choices. The other pages on this website will give families clues how to evaluate the care they decide to settle on.

YOU HAVE OPTIONS:

You can move in with one of your children.

You can stay in your own home and have In-Home care. There is value in remaining in your own home and familiar neighborhood. In-Home Care begins at $25 per hour with a four-hour minimum. Total care will be over $10,000 per month.

You can downsize to an 800-square foot senior apartment which offers community if you want it, privacy on the days you don’t. Rent varies from $2500 to $4000 per month. A kitchen allows you to prepare your own meals.

An Adult Family Home allows you safe independence in a home-like setting. You enjoy a private room with access to kitchen and community rooms. A family atmosphere is developed to include you.

You can move into an Independent Living Community. Costs may start with a basic, non-refundable $300,000 plus monthly rent. Another option requires $3500 to $6,000 per month depending on the size of the apartment. Two meals are provided each day. Limited additional nursing care will be an add-on expense. Many Independent Living Communities also offer Assisted Living with total care.

An Assisted Living and Nursing Home facility will provide medical care as well as therapy and group activities.

A Skilled Nursing Facility will care for you while you rehab from an injury before moving to a more permanent home.

 Your doctor can help you determine which living situation is best for you at this time.
