Understanding Senior Living Options and Transitions and how California Home For Seniors Can Help

The senior care and care assistance industry is often difficult to navigate, making the process of finding a new home for yourself or a loved one daunting. California Home For Seniors is dedicated to helping seniors and their families and caregivers through these difficult decisions and transitions.

Below is a quick overview of how California Home For Seniors can take away the stress of this sometimes confusing and complex landscape.


How CHFS Ensures its Network of Facilities is Top Notch

Each provider specialty has its own standards of certification within its particular industry. CHFS requires all of its participating providers to maintain all required licenses, authorizations, and insurance needed to provide services and products to the consumer. They are all required to meet CHFS Provider Participation Standards and abide by CHFS Terms of Use.

If CHFS learns that a provider has failed to meet those standards or to abide by those terms, the provider will be disqualified from participation in our program.


Types of Elder and Assisted Care

Facilities range from full nursing home care, to board and care, to assisted living. Nursing homes offer the highest level of senior care, Board & Care are usually smaller homes housing 6-8 seniors, and assisted living facilities are often active communities housing many independent seniors that assist seniors living independently in onsite apartments with meals, housekeeping, tracking their medicine, and in some cases, hygiene needs. We also work with communities that offer specialized assistance, such as Alzheimer’s care.


The Benefits of Assisted Living

Typical amenities often include personal care assistance like bathing, dressing, and eating; access to health care and medical services, onsite social and spiritual activities, recreation and exercise facilities, wellness programs, transportation, security, and housekeeping. Assisted living communities are designed to help seniors enjoy the best in life while maintaining a healthy lifestyle and positive self-image.


How CHFS Helps to Determine Level of Care

The level of care needed is determined in the evaluation of the Senior Care Assessment. Advisors will review the assessment and work with the senior and/or their caregiver or family to determine what level of care the senior needs.


How California Home For Seniors Goes the Extra Mile

After the needs assessment, the CHFS Elder Care advisor helps the senior or caregiver compare the best matches from our network of over 2000 qualified facilities. They will make experience based recommendations based on the needs of the client and then personally contact the facilities the senior or caregiver likes most for more information. The advisor is available to the clients to guide them through a tour of facilities to further narrow it down. After placement, CHFS follows up with the senior to make sure the transition went smoothly and that they are happy and adjusting well to their new home. In short, CHFS advisors take a personal interest in every client and work diligently to make the process of finding a new home simpler.

California Home For Seniors is dedicated to service that is kind, personal, and inclusive. To contact them for more information regarding senior living care, call them at 88-365-4586 or visit their website at
