Many people find Adult Foster Care, the low-cost alternative to traditional assisted living facilities or nursing homes, to be a better fit for their values, lifestyle, and finances. An Adult Foster Care Family Home is a state-licensed private residence. It enables a family to provide assisted living to one to four residents (five if caring for elderly residents) who require help with daily activities but are not bedridden. Licensees of such a home, along with their residents, enjoy the greatest personal freedom and independence in both concept and operation of their shared household, everyone may exercise their full level of independence more than in an assisted living facility or a nursing home. Most people do not like crowds and studies have shown that occupants of smaller Adult Foster Care Homes tend to be happier than residents in larger nursing homes are. In addition, an Adult Foster Care Home, is often less than half the expense of larger assisted living facilities, and one-third the cost of a nursing home.
The main purpose of an Adult Foster Care Home is to provide a family-like environment, where residents feel the warmth of human relationships. The Corner Stepping Stone sustains this family-like environment for every resident through the many services we offer.
