The Homesteads are Family-Type homes for adults and we provide assisted living alternative homes for adults who need aid in their daily
and who should not be left alone. We provide the needed supervision and gentle kindness
that a person would hope to find for their loved ones. If you're looking for good elderly care, you've found the right place for you.
We are not a nursing facility, nor are we assisted living facilities, but instead we specialize in small homes in which our residents live with up to six
other adults in a fun and friendly environment. We have family meals, picnics, cook outs, parties, holiday celebrations, family
vacations and outings! We consider all residents a part of our extended family. We put the "family" in family style homes.
We accept many different individuals who are at different levels of care including those with
dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Our highly trained staff has first aid certification and CPR training. We are licensed by
New York State and inspected by divisions of Social Service.
What sets the Homestead’s apart from other placement choices?
We are a very viable financial choice. The costs of skilled nursing facilities average $8000 -
$12,000.00 per month and many assisted living facilities average $3,900.00 or more per
month. The Homestead’s are less expensive. Please see our price comparison chart on our
Caregiver to Resident Ratio
Our caregiver ratio can never be more than 1 caregiver for four residents and 2 boarders.
Often it is 1 caregiver to three residents! Unheard of in any facility. Most large assisted
living homes and SNF have a ratio of 1 caregiver to 15 residents.
Due to the low caregiver/ resident ratio, our caregivers actually care and give attention to their
residents. Most of our caregivers work in one specific home, knowing and understanding their residents’ needs.
The Homesteads offers our residents with personalized, individual activities. We understand that not everyone loves crafts, or bingo. We can take our resident
fishing, or to a baseball game. We can go on picnics and walk in the park. Because we know each residents’ likes and dislikes, we can offer stimulating activities
personalized to our resident.
The Homesteads are just that, homes, not facilities.
