Residential Care

Residential Care Choices in California

In California, Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) and Adult Residential Facilities (ARF) are two types of residential care options that cater to different populations with varying needs. These facilities provide a range of services in a residential setting, aiming to offer a comfortable living environment along with personal care and support.


Licensing and Regulation

Both RCFEs and ARFs in California are regulated by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. The licensing process ensures that facilities meet specific standards for health and safety, staff qualifications, resident care, and physical environment. Regular inspections and compliance checks are conducted to ensure ongoing adherence to these standards.



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.


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.
