What is a Residential Care Home?

The terms residential care homes, adult family homes, board and care homes, and personal care homes are terms often used to describe certain communities and/or facilities.

These terms may or may not reflect official state requirements concerning licensing, level of care, and/or the services that are provided. We recommend that when considering these communities and/or facilities you request to see their state license and/or contact your state’s licensing authority for clarification on license type, level of care, and/or the services that are provided.
