There is not a nationwide definition for board and care homes, but the basic difference between assisted living and board and care is their size.Sometimes it may mean the ability, with extra help, to stay in an assisted living facility as well. People sometimes discover that the assistance provided in an assisted living facility is not sufficient to enable them to remain independent.In these cases, Visiting Angels provides a qualified caregiver to make this possible.Our philosophy is to make the schedule work for the family, not the agency.
