Personal care homes for the elderly, group homes for the intellectually disabled and developmentally disabled, and adult day centers are in high demand now, and will be in higher demand in the future. Every day, 10,000 people in the U.S. turn 65, and by the year 2030, over 73 million Americans will be aged 65 or older. By 2040, the population of persons aged 80 and older will reach 28 million. This business and industry is growing and the demand for personal care and care facilities will only increase.
What are Care Homes?
Care homes can be residential homes, commercial facilities, or apartments. Whether they are called personal care homes, group homes, assisted living facilities, or adult foster care homes, they are designed to provide 24/7 shelter, three daily meals, laundry services, grooming help, medication assistance, and help with any activities for daily living. Other activities may include exercise, religious services, outdoor trips, arts and crafts, and movie nights.
24/7 care home facilities many times are recommended by physicians, family members, social workers, hospital discharge planners, or even the individual. Many individuals having challenges staying home alone are ideal candidates for this program. Many of the individuals may be a danger to themselves. They may be falling, not taking their medication correctly, missing meals, and not bathing; however, many are energetic, smart, and still desire social interaction with others in a safe, clean, and loving environment. Having home care in a residential environment is an excellent alternative to a nursing home, or larger assisted living facility.
The Licensing Process
The process and steps to open a licensed personal care home to provide home care can be overwhelming, scary, and for many it’s like stepping into unknown territory. Working with someone who has gone through the licensing process in a brief amount of time without errors, can be ideal. Knowing what to do, how to do it, and when to do it is a huge part of passing the compliance test to become a state licensed care facility.
