Choosing the Right Facility

Choosing between an RCFE and an ARF depends on the individual's age, level of independence, and specific care needs. For elderly individuals who primarily need assistance with daily living activities and want to live in a community setting with peers, an RCFE might be the best option. For adults under 60 who require support due to physical, mental, or developmental disabilities, an ARF could provide the necessary environment for care and growth.

In both cases, it's important to visit potential facilities, ask questions about the level of care and services provided, and assess whether the environment feels welcoming and safe for you or your loved one.
