Bella Vista Adult Family Homes welcomes you and your family with open arms to our two homes; Sandalwood and Bella Vista. We provide comprehensive services customized to each resident's needs.

In other words, we offer individualized negotiated care for each resident, based on their personal needs. Both of our beautiful homes are modern single family homes, one level ranchers, and accessible to wheel chairs, Hoyer lifts, and walkers.

Both of adult family homes are regular neighborhood homes, not distinct from neighboring homes, where we provide personal care and assume responsibility for the safety and well-being of elderly and vulnerable adults.

We provide a shared or private room, three healthy meals and snacks every day, laundry, supervision and varying levels of assistance with individual personal care. We provide some occasional nursing care from our contracted registered nurse.

We have a contracted and reliable pharmacy, which is one-stop shop for supply and delivery of all our medical supplies and medications.

We also have a visiting Physician available to serve all residents in our homes, on a regular basis. We offer specialized care for people with either mental health issues, developmental disabilities or dementia.

To assess a potential adult family home as an option for your loved one, it is important to find out what kinds of services and supports are available at the target home(s) you are interested in.
