    Accent on Seniors, a leading senior living referral service that helps families find senior living options, is pleased to announce that it offers specialty referral services to residential board & care homes. Board & care homes provide a more home-like environment and can be a great option for seniors who require more one-on-one care.

    This type of assisted living option is often overlooked amongst other senior care options, yet they provide some of the most intimate and inclusive care options for seniors, especially those who require more personalized care. Board & care homes are typically situated in single family homes in residential neighborhoods and are run by licensed healthcare providers who specialize in senior and/or dementia care. They traditionally have an average of five to six residents, which allows for a much higher caregiver-to-resident ratio than larger assisted living facilities. Residents also benefit from a family-like home setting and often enjoy a more personal connection with fellow residents and staff.

    Typical senior living options include nursing homes, large assisted living facilities or in-home care providers. “Many people are not aware of board and care homes as an option for assisted living for the elderly. These smaller communities are ideal for seniors who prefer a more homelike, residential environment as opposed to the hotel- or apartment-style living provided by traditional and larger assisted living facilities,” says Djena Graves Lennix, President of Accent on Seniors.

    There are more than 6,400 licensed board & care homes – of nearly 8,000 assisted living communities - in California, making care homes the majority of the Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs) in the state. Accent on Seniors specializes in finding quality board and care homes for aging family members or loved ones.

    Many board & care caregivers take residents on frequent trips and outings and invite entertainers into the home to keep seniors connected and engaged with the world around them. Multiple studies have shown that loneliness and a lack of social activity exacerbates depression as well as the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia-like conditions. Board & care homes offer more personalized interaction than many of their larger assisted living counterparts, where residents often spend significant portions of time alone in their rooms, or parked in wheelchairs along corridors and common areas, with little human contact.

    Accent on Seniors works with thousands of B&C communities around the state of California, including San Francisco, Sacramento, Orange County, Los Angeles and San Diego as well as smaller, rural areas. Families interested in learning more about Board and Care options in California should contact Accent on Seniors (888-799-8306) to receive a detailed report which lists those B&Cs that best meet their family members’ needs.
