Personal Care Home vs. Assisted Living Community—What This Means to You
In Georgia, anyone in the senior care business must be licensed as either a Personal Care Home (PCH) or Assisted Living Community (ALC). The choice is up to the home owner. Nonetheless the State has some conditions. ALC’s must have 25 beds or more and must meet building codes suitable for healthcare facilities. State law stipulates that PCH and ALC must provide residents with the same senior care services regardless of licensure type. Here are some questions you might ask yourself as you decide which type home you want for your loved one.
- Will he/she feel more at ease in a larger or smaller environment?
- A social butterfly might appreciate a larger environment with a greater range of activities.
- A more private individual might prefer a more intimate home where activities are individualized.
- How much stimulation does your loved one need? Many seniors thrive in a quieter environment.
- Does your loved one need increased structure to maintain healthy habits like bathing, mobility, and nutrition? Smaller homes offer more structure in general.
- Will your loved one take advantage of the offerings of a larger facility or would that dollar be better spent on caregiving resources and staffing?
- Does your loved one really need lots of individual attention and time in caregiving? Smaller homes tend to excel at that type of care.
- What do you expect of the management of the home? Smaller homes tend to have longer-term ownership than larger corporate facilities, and families often have direct access to the owner.
