Housing - Residential Care Facilities

Available in some states, these facilities provide apartment-style living without kitchens for those who do not need skilled nursing assistance but who have slightly more complicated needs than is appropriate for assisted living (for example, people with dementia or memory problems who are otherwise very healthy).

Part of their "Care Options" program, this interactive online tool asks about your loved one's abilities. It then makes recommendations for options and provides a list of questions to ask when interviewing care providers.
