Our mission is to provide personalised, resident centered care that meets the unique individual preferences and needs. We strive to promote the quality of life, encourage independence and believe in living with comfort and pride.
Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs) — sometimes called “Assisted Living” (e.g., 16+ beds) or “Board and Care” (e.g., 4 to 6 beds) — are non–medical facilities that provide room, meals, housekeeping, supervision, storage and distribution of medication, and personal care assistance with basic activities like hygiene, dressing, eating, bathing and transferring.
RCFEs serve persons 60 years of age and older.
RCFEs are considered non-medical facilities and are not required to have nurses, certified nursing assistants or doctors on staff. This level of care and supervision is for people who are unable to live by themselves but who do not need 24hour nursing care.
Yes. RCFEs must meet care and safety standards set by the State and are licensed and inspected by the Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing (CCL).
Most people must pay privately for care. Long-term care insurance only covers a very small percentage of people. There is very limited public funding through Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for RCFE residents who qualify for this program. Unfortunately, the SSI rate is so low that fewer and fewer facilities will accept persons on SSI.
