TYPES OF RESIDENCES FOR SENIORS
Supportive Care Residences:
Owners rent one or several apartments and hire and supervise caregivers. This offers freedom but no oversight.
Residential Care Apartment Complex (RCAC):
Another “aging in place” option, these offer privacy and independent living and an on-site staff. Residents can purchase the level of care they need,
Community-Based Residential Facility (CBRF)
offers communal dining, activities and a nursing staff, with some degree of oversight.
Adult Family Homes
are run by private individuals and can be ideal for difficult-to-place people. These might have just one to three beds or house hundreds.
