Personal care homes were developed to provide housing and personal care services to individuals, usually seniors, who need assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs). PCH residents vary in their ability to care for themselves without help and some may even work or volunteer away from the facility. Residents of a personal care home may come and go as they please with the certainty that, when they are home, their needs – including meals, laundry and medication administration – will be attended to in an appropriate, professional manner.
There are many reasons seniors move to a residential facility: some no longer feel safe being alone at home, others need daily assistance with personal care and grooming; some simply crave the activity and friendship that is available in a group setting. Living with others and engaging in regular conversation can quickly relieve the depression that is common to those who spend too much time alone and lonely. Frequent outings in the community, daily games and activities and weekly entertainment by professionals add to our residents’ quality of life and give them something to look forward to!
