Care Homes Kelowna

Care Homes Kelowna - A small and private facility which normally accommodates as much as 10 individuals is referred to as a care home. People stay in private rooms with private or shared bathrooms. There are common recreation, living and dining areas for all residents to utilize. Residents are able to live mostly by themselves, but are offered many help like getting dressed, bathing, laundry, meal services, cleaning, and medication management. These kinds of homes are occasionally called personal care homes, adult care homes, board and care homes or residential care homes. These kinds of facilities are a similar concept to assisted living facilities, but on a much smaller scale. The majority of other long term care homes and assisted living facilities are much bigger facilities which accommodate many residents. Normally there are more medical services offered that are available to residents on-site.

The major benefit of a care home is that these facilities are appropriate for individuals who do not need access to medical care on a regular basis and who do not need medical supervision. The stress and burden of maintaining a home and the cost of living is also reduced or eliminated, as the residence and grounds should be taken care of by the owner of the home and maintenance expenses are shared among all of the residents. Residents could live mostly by themselves and can benefit from and develop friendships with the other residents in the facility. Residents have the opportunity not to feel depressed or lonely which often happens during the loss of one's social interactions and aging. Accommodations are usually inviting and cozy. In addition, residents have the feeling of increased security compared to being alone in a house or apartment as well as the advantage of professional care.

Typical residents of care homes are those people who may be noticing a decrease in mental or physical ability but do not need extensive medical supervision or care. Care home residents could live mostly independently but might need or benefit from some type of assistance with simple daily tasks such as preparing meals, doing laundry, performing basic hygienic tasks and getting dressed. In a care home, you wouldn't find individuals who have debilitating illnesses or conditions that require a medical professional's care. In some homes pets might even be allowed and couples can room together.

To be able to acquire and maintain their license to operate, the majority of care homes must be subject to inspections on a regular basis and are regulated by each province. Employee certification and background, cleanliness, health of the residents, meal plan nutrition and facility maintenance are all items which are under strict regulation to guarantee the residents' health and safety.
