What is a Care Home?
The Adult Residential Care Home (ARCH) concept, creates 24-hour living accommodations for adults (unrelated to the caregiver) to live and maintain their dignity in a safe, loving, caring home and family environment, also referred to as a "social model" of care.
Every ARCH is required to be licensed with the State of Hawaii Department of Health, to provide housing, meals, and personal care in a family setting, for those who need assistance or are no longer able to perform all the activities of daily living for themselves. An ARCH may have up to 5 residents.
