Yes. About 15% of Family Resource Home Care’s clients live in assisted living facilities. How does it work? Just as if we were sending a caregiver to the home, our caregiver would instead go to the facility to carry out home care services. You might ask, why would anyone living in an assisted living facility hire an outside home care agency?
There are a few reasons for this: Many facilities do provide needed assistance, but for example, a resident may have to move from their independent apartment in order to receive services and needs professional Transitional Care Services. A resident may need one-on-one care or a higher level of service than the facility provides in assisted living, or the resident may need longer or more frequent hours than the facility can staff. Compared to a home care agency, a facility will most likely have less flexibility in both assigning staff and scheduling availability.
