Facility Types

The California Department of Social Services licenses care facilities for persons who can not live alone but who do not need extensive medical services. The services provided in these facilities vary according to the needs of the individual, but typically include help with medications and assistance with personal hygiene, dressing and grooming. The facilities also may provide supervision and programs for individuals who have Alzheimer's disease or other types of dementia.
