Fourth Corner Adult Family Homes
What is an Adult Family Home?
Adult Family Homes are private homes licensed by the State of Washington to care for up to 6 clients. They offer long-term "non-institutional" care to functionally disabled adults and frail elderly. They do this by providing warm, loving and personalized care in family settings within residential areas of our community.
Who are the Owners/Providers?
Many Providers have nursing degrees; ARNP's, RN's, LPN's, as well as nursing assistant certificates; CNA's and NAR's. We take continuing education every year to renew our licenses. Larger numbers of us are furthering our education and have returned to school to become nurses or earn Geriatric accreditation. Many started out by caring for one of our own family members (father, mother, aunt, etc.) and continue on in this line of work because we've became attached to the Residents we care for. And many came from other lands and found a niche market in which to become established in America. For the members of the WSRCC - It's about the care! We care about Quality Assurance and hold ourselves to a high standard! And, we consider it an honor and privilege to serve you and your families just as if you were our own!

How much does it cost?
Adult Family Homes offer affordable long-term care rates. Fees are based on the level of care needed and type of room desired. Feel free to compare what different care settings and homes charge. Ask what is included in the base fee and what the additional charges are per month. Many Adult Family Homes accept private pay, Medicaid, Veteran's Aid & Attendance, and long term care insurance.
