Sometimes an adult foster care home
is a better option. Mr. T is an 85 year-old blind man who was living in an assisted living
community. Because of his vision issues, his dementia, and his being confined to a wheelchair, it seemed assisted living
just wasn't the right environment for him. He was not participating in activities with the other residents, he stayed in his apartment most of the time, and he simply required too much care compared to the other residents in the community... His daughter contacted us to see what other options were available for her dad. She loves her dad and wanted him to be happy and feel safe and secure in his living space.

Mr. V was an 87 year-old man with Parkinson's dementia, heart failure, and general failure to thrive. He had been living in an assisted living community
for several years, and used to be quite active, but his health was declining rapidly to the point where he was refusing to eat or drink. He would alternate between sleeping for hours on end, to being very agitated and trying to get up, despite being a considerable fall risk... We found Mr. V a wonderful adult foster care home
, where he received 24 hour care by an awake staff. Hospice followed him to his new home, and cared for him there. It was a much better-suited environment for him, and although the costs were still quite high with 24-hour care, it was much less expensive than having the round-the-clock in-home caregiver.
