Compassionate Continuity

At Our Family Home, we support compassionate continutity of care more than a skilled nursing home or assited living facility. Our 2 to 5 staff to resident ratio allows us to provide more one on one care from caregivers who are specifically trained in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. We have less turnover and burnout of staff increasing caregiver continuity. In addition, our residents, loved ones, and visitors are able to develop a positive relationship with our staff which is beneficial to excellent care.
