Personal care homes for the elderly, adult group homes for the intellectually and developmentally disabled, youth homes, and adult day centers are in high demand now, and will be in higher demand in the future. Every day, approximately 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 group home 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 for Disabled Adults, Assisted Living Facilities, or Adult Foster Care Homes, they are designed to provide personal care and habilitation services in residential settings. They provide 24/7 shelter, room and board, and help with any activities for daily living (ADLs). These residential facilities promote community engagement with activities such as outdoor field trips, shopping excursions, and on-site recreation and events such as arts and crafts, and movie nights.
Residential care home facilities many times are recommended by physicians, family members, social workers, case managers, hospital discharge planners, or even the clients themselves. Individuals experiencing challenges staying home alone, or those diagnosed with intellectual or developmental disabilities, are ideal candidates for care homes. Many of the individuals may be a danger to themselves. They may fall or be injured frequently, or fail to take their medication correctly – or at all. They may be missing meals, and not bathing; however, many are energetic, smart, and still desire social interaction with others in a safe, clean, and loving environment. A warm, caring home in a residential environment is an excellent alternative to a nursing home, or a larger, institution-like assisted living facility.
The Licensing Process
The process and steps to start up a licensed personal care home can be overwhelming, and for many, it’s like stepping into what might look like a bureaucratic nightmare. But CCT has the necessary experience to shepherd you through the system and can make the licensing process less intense, which allows you to start running your new business faster. 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. We can help you with that, too.
