Adult care homes are residences for aged and disabled adults who may require 24 hour supervision and help with activities of daily living. Homes must respect the rights of residents as outlined in the North Carolina General Statutes. The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program advocates on behalf of adult care home residents and provides assistance with informal grievance resolution upon request of a resident or legal representative. North Carolina operates the State-County Special Assistance Program to help low income families pay for the cost of care in adult care homes.

Housing Options for Adults with Special Needs
A safe, welcoming, comfortable place to call home is essential to living a life of independence. While structured differently to best meet individual needs as well as to comply with state regulations, all of our homes offer high quality services with the shared goal of supporting individuals to thrive at home and in the community. Individuals have their own tailored bedroom and have a voice in choosing their housemates. They share living expenses such as rent, utilities, cable TV, and groceries. Individuals often share a bedroom, but they still enjoy personal space and tailor their room to their wants and likes.
As they reach adulthood, young people with disabilities also reach a crossroads in care. If not, how can they access caregiving resources outside their immediate families? For many families, this is a difficult conversation. For parents, letting go of care taking duties may be difficult. They may worry that no one else can care for their child as well as they can.
