Adult Family Homes
Adult Family Homes have shown to increase the quality of life for seniors, reduce comorbidities, hospitalizations while lowering the overall cost of health care. The alternatives are nursing homes or assisted living facilities. The nurse/caregiver to patient ratio in an adult family is significantly lower than nursing homes and long term care facilities. There can be as little as one caregiver for 28 patients, and it can cost a patient over $500 per day. An Adult Family Home has one to two caregivers for every six residents and can cost a patient an average of $150 to $200 per day. Adult foster homes are the premier choice for care and senior living by the state, patients, and their families.
