How Our Resident-To-Caregiver Ratio Sets Us Apart

At CareAgape Senior Homes, we strive to create a positive assisted living experience. We believe that by offering a low resident-to-caregiver ratio, we can offer better care for all of the individuals in our homes.

Unfortunately, most states don’t have any regulations regarding the proper number of staff-to-resident ratio. In fact, most residences have a ratio of 1 caregiver for every 6 to 8 residents.

Unlike these other residences, we are proud to offer a 1:3 ratio, where one caregiver can offer quality care and attention for up to three individuals. Here’s why it makes a difference:

Better Response Times
Depending on a resident’s physical or mental condition, they may rely on a caregiver for basic needs, such as dressing, eating, and using the bathroom. If your elderly loved one needs help with these tasks, the last thing you want is for them to wait for care. When the ratio of resident-to-caregiver is ideal, your family member will never have to wait long to get the care or assistance that they need to live comfortably.

Better Safety
Also, one of the main reasons individuals choose to move into assisted living homes is to ensure optimal safety and security. When they receive sufficient supervision from a trained professional, they no longer have to worry about falling or injuring themselves, as help is always nearby.

Better Relationships
Assisted living homes also offer excellent social benefits for their residents. Not only can an individual make new friendships with their neighbors, but they can also create deep, meaningful, relationships with their caregivers. At CareAgape, we pride ourselves in creating a loving family home for all of our residents—one that starts with love for the individuals in our care.

Better Care
Most importantly, a low resident-to-caregiver ratio offers better care overall. When an individual knows that they will receive prompt assistance, that they are safe and secure, and that they are cared for by individuals who love them like family, there is no doubt they will enjoy a more happy and fulfilling life.

When choosing a senior home, make sure your loved one is going to receive the best care by inquiring about the home’s resident-to-caregiver ratio.
