Do You Want to Start a Personal Care Business?
Personal care homes for the elderly, or group homes sometimes called a community living arrangement (CLA) for the developmentally disabled, are residential care homes or apartments for individuals. Personal care facilities are designed to provide 24/7 shelter, three daily meals, laundry services, hygiene help, medication assistance, and help with activities for daily living. Other activities may include exercise, religious services, outdoor trips, arts and crafts, and movie nights. Care homes may have teenagers, foster children, seniors, or developmentally disabled individuals.
Personal care homes or group homes many times are recommended by physicians, family members, social workers, hospital discharge planners, or even the individual. Individuals having challenges staying home alone are ideal candidates for these homes or facilities. Many of the individuals may be a danger to themselves. Maybe they are falling, not taking their medication correctly, missing meals, and not bathing. Please know that many of these individuals are energetic, smart, and still desire social interaction with others in a safe, clean, and loving environment. A personal care home is an excellent alternative to a nursing home, or larger assisted living facility.
There is a right and wrong way to do most things in life and business. Allow us to help you fulfill your dream of owning a personal care facility. Owning a care home or home care agency is rewarding. Can be quite profitable, and you will be able to impact others lives by giving quality care and compassion in a safe loving environment.
