Adult Home Terms to Know

Finding an adult home for a loved one can be a very difficult and emotional process. Before beginning your research, you may find it helpful to first familiarize yourself with some important terms and definitions in order to find the best arrangement for you and your family.

  • Adult Day Care - Adult day care allows you to obtain supervision and care for your elderly in a public facility. The community-based center arranges for recreational and social activities in a safe environment. Many adult day care centers also provide medical care and keep doctors or nurses on staff.
  • Community Based Care - There are also senior services available to allow the elderly to remain living in their homes. Nursing services and general aid can be provided for individuals over the age of retirement.
  • Custodial Care - If your senior citizen is not in need of regular medical care or treatment, you will need a home that assists with daily living. This type of nursing home provides custodial care, or assistance with bathing, dressing, walking, and eating.
  • Respite Care - If you are primarily caring for your loved one at home, but need a break for vacation, work, or other obligations, find a place that offers respite care. Respite care offers temporary living arrangement and medical and custodial care.
  • Palliative Care - Palliative care is available in some retirement communities. Its goal is to provide comfort and pain relief for illness-related symptoms.
  • Section 8 - Section 8 is government aid aimed at providing housing for low-income families. This can sometimes be applied toward adult home facilities.

    Adult homes are residences where several adults suffering from various disabilities live together under one roof to receive personal and medical care services. Adults living in these homes are independent overall, but they do require daily check-ins, physical therapy, and medication administration by nurses and aides. Some hold jobs outside the home, while others are confined to it. Adult homes do usually offer a higher level of independence than, for instance, a nursing home. Although adults in these situations cannot generally care for themselves all the time, they are guaranteed a level of attention and safety by professional nurses and even doctors. Qualified physical therapists may visit the facility on a regular basis to provide social activities, meals, and health care directives for each patient. Some residents may suffer from Alzheimer's, while others may have brain injuries. Each person's needs are unique, and custom tailored nursing programs and plans are created for each one. Adult homes usually take the form of large residential homes or apartments. Some are modeled after retirement complexes, with organized social activities and programs for elderly residents and senior citizens. Related facilities include convalescent and nursing homes. Such residential adult homes may offer occasional outings for residents, such as visits to the local community center or park. Adult homes and centers are usually for the long term, and many offer hospice services as well. People can find out more about local adult homes through referrals from their primary care doctor. Many people want what's best for their loved one, and will need to do extensive research into finding the best possible retirement home, some of which may have hospital affiliations. Insurance comes into play here, and that is a major factor when looking for an adult home. Many take Medicare these days, but it's important to check.
