Assisted Living versus Board and Care Homes

Bethany Home is a state-licensed Elderly Assisted Living Facility. As the elderly care industry has many names and categories under which our services fall, here is a brief overview so that you understand what Bethany Homes can provide for your loved-one.

The main difference between an Assisted Living Community and a Board and Care Home or Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE) is most often their size. Assisted Living Facilities tend to be larger and Board and Care Homes are usually smaller, providing care for usually 6 residents, in a non-institutional, residential home setting. Although both Assisted Living and Board and Care Homes provide the same assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), residents in the smaller Board and Care Homes benefit from having better staff-to-resident ratios than larger facilities. As a result, it is usual for the elderly to move from a larger Assisted Living environment to a smaller board and care home as their care level increases and they need more personal attention and assistance with activities of daily living.

So where does Bethany Homes fit in? Although Bethany Homes is an assisted living community, it is made up of smaller board and care home locations located throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Each location is a residential care home specifically designed to meet the needs of the elderly, without the feel of a large institutional setting. As a result, each of our residents benefit from the resources of a larger Assisted Living Community but also the attention to detail and familiarity that comes with each smaller location.

Founder (Elizabeth)

Elizabeth founded Bethany Home in 1993 when she began caring for her aging father and mother-in-law. We know firsthand the joys and challenges of caring for a family member, as well as how important it is to find peace of mind knowing that your loved one receives loving and qualified care.

Managing Director (Ari)

Being involved in Bethany Home since childhood, Ari grew up around the elderly. He always felt as if he had hundreds of grandparents over the years. He loves developing relationships with a variety of people and brings youth and energy into the day-to-day interactions and operation of the homes with a desire to assist seniors and their families to the best of his ability.
