Finding adult care and assisted living in Portland, OR

 Supporting Seniors With Differing Needs

A senior may be ready for an Adult Care Home when they need some help with their personal care, remembering to take medications and other tasks of daily living. The level of care provided in an Adult Care Home differs from home to home. Some will provide considerable assistance with personal care and provide 24-hours supervision. Others only meet the needs of seniors requiring minimal assistance.


Adult Care Homes

Adult Care Homes are private residences licensed under state or county ordinance. This care setting is often the best choice for a senior who has increasing care needs. The caregiver to resident ratio is the best in the industry, minimally 1 to 5 in Portland, OR and 1 to 6 in Vancouver, WA. While the level of care provided isn't as great as that available in a nursing home, adult care homes are often a easier move for a senior to make than a move directly into a nursing home.

Knowing the level of assistance provided can be an important part of choosing the right Adult Care Home for your loved one.


Adult Care Services

Different Adult Care Homes meet different needs. Some Adult Care Homes offer less permanent senior care options such as day care and respite care. Most Adult Care Homes provide long term care and hospice care. Some provide all of these services.
