What is a Residential Care Facility?
Residential care facilities provide housing and supportive services for people not in need of 24-hour nursing care and are licensed and regulated by the Department of Human Services. Residential care facilities are not required to have licensed nurses on staff for a specific number of hours per week. The nurse typically does not provide hands-on personal nursing care.
 
Residential care facilities offer shared and private rooms. These facilities are not required to provide private bathrooms or kitchenettes. When considering any long-term care setting, request copies of the residents' rights, the admission contract, and price list to read closely.

What are the costs involved in residential care?
Because every person's individual needs are unique, we take the time to meet with each prospective resident and their guardian. Together, we will develop a service plan to guide us in assisting with activities of daily living. Costs for services vary depending upon the prospective resident's needs and the amount of time required from staff. We will provide a detailed accounting of the services we can offer and the cost involved. For more information or for a personal tour, please call us at (503) 659-1077, email us at
