There are basically three types of housing and senior care available depending on the level of care needed – Adult Foster Homes, Residential Care Facility (RCF) and In-Home Care.

Adult Foster Homes

Adult foster care homes are located in residential neighborhoods in Salem and provide an intimate setting for assisted living and excellent care. The goal is to create an atmosphere where where residents will feel like part of a family, and be treated with dignity and respect allowing them to retain their individuality and independence while receiving all the care they require at a fraction of the price of the larger facilities.

Residential Care Facility

These will vary in the level of services provided. However, a common feature of RCF’s are a multiple bed / private room full service residence for seniors that need assisted living in a community atmosphere managed by a professional staff.

In Home Care

In-home care encompasses a wide range of services ranging from companionship, homemaker, and personal care services that are delivered at each client’s home by qualified caregivers. Generally, in-home care is appropriate whenever a person prefers to stay at home, but needs care that cannot easily or effectively be provided solely by family and friends. More and more seniors are electing to live an independent lifestyle and are receiving in-home care services as their physical capabilities diminish. In-home care is a great option for those you wish to receive safe and effective care in the comfort of their own homes.
