Family Care Homes Info

What is an FCH?

family care home is a private home that has been licensed to provide room, board, and some basic care services to up to 3 adults not related to the family. FCHs provide care for adults who require some assistance, but also need love, companionship, and support.

Why choose an FCH?

Family care homes:

  • Provide personal care
  • Have a family atmosphere
  • Are usually less expensive than assisted living or nursing home care
  • Are usually located in a regular neighborhood
