home-and-family_elder-careElder group homes are small residential homes with all amenities mostly located within a community and are aimed to serve adults predominantly with similar chronic disabilities. Usually elderly group homes have fewer occupants and trained staffs are provided to take care of them round the clock. Some of these homes run on contributions from private, confidential citizens and holy institutions. Most of the group homes are in possession of governmental organizations, either profit or non-profit organizations. Government group homes for elders are of small budget in comparison to private homes. They are much cost effective than institutional care.

Most elderly group homes are like any other standard family house in the locality furnished in such a manner to meet the requirement and needs of the elderly residents. Occupants of these homes usually have various type of unremitting mental disorder that damages their ability to live their life independently. Some elderly residents also have physical disabilities like destruction of vision due to age, hearing and communication problem, sleeping and stress disorder, etc. These personalities have need of constant support to complete their daily living and to take self-care. Some of them require extra care due to activities that may prove to be fatal to self as well as to other residents.

Elderly mentally retarded people requires treatment from gloominess, loneliness, nervousness, panic attacks, extreme agonize helplessness, negative response towards medical suggestions, dietetic restrictions, etc. Mostly all elderly community homes provide all these treatments and supports to their residents but services and atmosphere may vary from costly homes to low budget homes. Government of almost every country has certain laws regarding community homes for elders in low income group. Government provides subsidies for those in the low income group providing them with proper treatment and homes to live the rest of their life in peace and tranquility.
