Residential Facilities, by GetCare.com.
An overview of several different types of residential care facilities, including:
* Assisted Living
* Nursing Homes
* Board and Care Homes
* Hospice Facilities
* Continuing Care Retirement Communities
* Congregate Housing
Includes a very basic description of each type of facility, a link to a quite good checklist of points to look for and ask the providers when searching for such a facility, and a link to a (very limited) finder tool for such facilities in California, provided by GetCare.com. GetCare is a company located in Oakland, California, which maintains databases of resources on senior care services, particularly in California, but the general descriptions and particularly the checklists may be applicable nationwide.
