What Are Board and Care Homes?
Board and care homes, also called residential care facilities or group homes, are small private facilities, usually with 20 or fewer residents. Rooms may be private or shared. Residents receive personal care and meals and have staff available around the clock. Nursing and medical care usually are not provided on site.
The difference between a Residential Care Home & a Nursing Home: Residential Care Home: Care is provided 24-hours a day by trained CareAssistants. … Nursing Home: Care is provided 24-hours a day by Registered Nurses who are supported by Care Assistants.
