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.

RCFE - Residential Care Facilities
for the Elderly


RCFEs are designed to serve persons 60 years of age and over, although they may also admit younger individuals under certain conditions. These facilities offer a homelike environment where residents can receive personal care assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and medication management. The level of care provided can vary greatly, from minimal assistance to more comprehensive care for individuals with higher needs, but does not include the level of care found in medical facilities. Services typically include:

  • Assistance with daily living activities

  • Medication management

  • Social and recreational activities

  • Meals and housekeeping

  • Transportation services

RCFEs are an option for seniors who cannot live independently but do not require the intensive medical care provided by nursing homes.


The motto "THINK. FEEL. GROW." beautifully captures the essence of what Best Intentions Behavioral Therapy aims to achieve – helping individuals to reflect on their thoughts, understand and manage their emotions, and embrace growth and change.
