Arizona adult group homes or residential assisted living homes in comparison to nursing homes offer similar assisted living services, but without the medical care which is provided by a licensed medical staff. In essence, adult group homes in Arizona offer all the services a senior may need to carry out routine daily life. The main differences between adult group homes and nursing homes can be attributed to the size of the facilities, cost, and type of services offered.
Arizona Nursing Homes staff up to 30 residents while Adult Group
Homes no more than 10 residents
Adult group homes in Arizona are regulated by the Arizona Department of Health Services and licensed to offer assisted living services for up to 10 residents.
