As an adult home, our services are based on a social model, meaning the home’s activities and programs reflect the wishes of our residents. The services of a nursing home, by contrast, cater to the complex medical needs of the patients.

While residents of the adult home are primarily independent, we assist those who need a little extra help with basic, daily chores — taking a shower, making a doctor’s appointment, or assistance with taking medications, for example.
