Private residential care homes offer non-medical care in a home-like setting. These are private, neighborhood houses with professional staff providing varying levels of care. This care may include memory care and end of life care, such as hospice. Residential care homes, also known as senior group homes, provide specific levels of care while living in an environment as comfortable and personal as their own home. Residential care homes tend to be smaller than other retirement communities allowing for a more personal and attentive care including help with activities of daily living, meals, and companionship in a safe place.
