Congregate Housing combines home care services and shared living space for older or disabled adults. Security, companionship, support and home care services as needed, help people stay independent and active in the community.
Congregate housing is a great option for people who don't want to live alone, but are not in need of nursing or rest home care.
Services available to residents may include:
- Care management
- Homemaker services
- Transportation coordination
- Personal care
- One community meal a day
- Coordination with other services as needed
- Optional community activities
