Five Stars Adult Care Home... What is an Adult Care Home?


Adult Care Homes are located in residential neighborhoods, and are preferred living arrangements for most elderly who can no longer live independently. The cost is about half the price of a nursing home and the care is much more individualized.

About us- Five Stars Adult Care Home provides a safe, secure, interesting, and very loving environment for our residents. One of the most difficult challenges a family can face is finding the perfect environment for their loved one. The staff at Five Stars is dedicated to providing a fun-filled, homelike environment for the residents. It’s a comfortable atmosphere that promotes dignity, independence, privacy and choice.

Staff- Experienced, compassionate, and dependable caregivers are carefully selected to provide our residents with loving care and assistance to make like more enjoyable and easier for them and provide their families with peace of mind. All of our staff are STNA’s (State Tested Nurse Assistant). They are carefully screened so that you can trust that your family member is getting the best possible care.

Meals- Residents are treated to three full home-cooked meals and unlimited snacks and drinks each day. Any special diets can be accommodated.

Assisted Living- Residents receive assistance with daily activities including dressing, bathing and grooming. We also do hair cuts, manicures, pedicures, and massages at no extra cost.

Medication- Our staff dispenses daily medication as instructed. All medication in our facility is kept locked and in a safe place.

Activities & Entertainment- Regular and holiday activities and events are planned for the residents. We also have a workout facility on the premises for mobility, range of motion, and low impact exercises. We have a dog, cat and a 75 gallon salt water tank for therapeutic stimulation. The three grade school children growing up on the property adds significant positive aspect to their daily lives.

Wellness Program- We encourage our residents to be part of our visiting physician program to get regular monthly check-ups at our facility. A podiatrist visits every nine weeks for toenail trimming and foot care needs.
