Residential Care

  

Residential care facilities provide housing and supportive services for six or more people who don't need 24 hour nursing care. Residential care facilities offer shared and private rooms. These facilities are not required to provide private bathrooms or kitchenettes, since most dining areas are close by all the residents.  Many residential care facilities specialize in caring for individuals with Alzheimer's or dementia. These are licensed and regulated by DHS. (Department of Human Resources) The size of facility is much smaller than  assisted living, and typically take care of 30-50 people on average.

When considering any long-term care setting, ask to see posted licensing, the admission contract, and price list, and if a base price what additional charges might be added.  Residential Care facilities are not required to have registered nurses on staff for a specific number of hours per week. The nurse typically does not provide hands-on personal nursing care, but that option is dependent upon facility.

Duties and qualifications of direct caregivers will vary among facilities. Staff to resident ratio will typically be lower than what is required for nursing homes. Caregivers are not required to be certified, although training prior to providing services to residents is mandatory.

The ratio of care givers to individuals are much better than memory care and would recommend Residential Care for that reason.
