Why Embrace Group Home

As the elderly population continues to grow, there are more individuals of 65 years and older who need long-term care and support services.  These individuals want more options to continue to live outside institutions and remain a viable citizen within the community.   To create choices for individuals who prefer to remain in a homelike setting, adult foster care enables an individual to foster the greatest personal freedom and independence more than elsewhere. Studies show that residents of smaller living settings tend to be happier than residents of nursing home facilities. In addition to providing one caregiver for every six residents, an adult foster care is often less than half of the cost of larger assisted living facilities and almost one third the cost of most nursing homes.


Embrace Group Home, LLC. was formed as an adult foster care to provide a family home setting for adults who are unable to live alone due to physical, emotional or developmental impairments. The home provides 24 hour care for functionally impaired residents. Residents receive meals, support, supervision, and assistance with personal care and living skills as needed.  Embrace meets the need of adults who require periodic or regular assistance with activities of daily living but do not require nursing services. Examples of “activities of daily living” include: dressing, bathing, eating, brushing teeth or combing hair.

  • Private home in a residential-zoned neighborhood
  • No more than five or six older adults or persons with physical disabilities

Group Home Vs. Nursing Home/Assisted Living

Adult foster care (AFC) offers a community-based living arrangement to adults who are unable to live independently because of physical or mental impairments or disabilities and are in need of supervision or personal care. Homes providing adult foster care offer 24-hour supervision, protection, and personal care in addition to room and board. They may provide additional services. Adult foster care serves a designated, small number of individuals (generally from one to six) in a homelike and family-like environment.


Relative to institutional care, AFC homes are also a cost-effective way to age in the community.  An older adult with sufficient financial resources typically pays out-of-pocket for AFC services, room, and board. AFC caregivers also typically provide lower level and thus less expensive services than those available in a nursing facility or other settings.   In addition to their cost-effectiveness, foster care homes have the advantage of being more integrated into their surrounding residential communities than larger institutional facilities. In combination with more formal regulation, the eyes and ears of neighbors can add an informal layer of community oversight that can help ensure the provision of quality care.


We anticipate continued growth and need in the market for these types of homes with the ever growing elderly population and governmental restrictions and reimbursement decline that may impact other provider types (e.g. SNF, ALF).


Our Goals & Objectives

At Embrace, we strive to provide safe housing to the elderly in the comfort of a home setting rather than a skilled nursing facility or a large complex where patients don’t receive individual care or attention. With the growing population of elderly and cuts to programs that keep the elderly safe and comfortable in their own homes, we understand it is becoming critical to offer alternative solutions to the elderly and their family members.  These choices need to make our residents feel like they are still a part of the community, not excluded and put into big buildings with no compassion or individual attention. Embrace Group Home provides private care in a safe environment to residents and value them and their abilities to function as productive members.


Embrace wants its potential residents and family members to understand they are not putting the resident into an institution, but rather in a home where they are provided with compassionate care in a manner that makes them feel truly valued.  A lot of seniors are hesitant leaving the comfort of their home and moving into any group setting.  Embrace promises to listen to our residents and their families, to ensure their satisfaction pertaining to the care they receive and/or any concerns they might have. Our staff treats all residents as they would want to be treated themselves, with love and compassion and understanding.

Our caregivers encourage the residents to provide input regarding the meals and activities that are scheduled so that they feel valued while providing our residents an opportunity to maintain their choices &independence.
