What are the guidelines/laws to setting up a residential/personal care home in Texas?
I'm trying to do some research on residential care homes and I am having a hard time finding information on them. No less, trying to find them in my local communities (surrounding San Marcos/San Antonio/Lockhart). Can anybody help me out in finding the guidelines to creating a faciliity?
Question answered by ron_mexico
As far as I know, there is no such thing as "guidelines" for creating such a facility -- mainly because each facility can be different. Ultimately, your facility will need to follow applicable state and federal laws. How you choose to do that is entirely up to you.
There are tons of legal issues to deal with, such as obtaining appropriate state licenses, developing a standard of care, developing end user contracts, etc, so hiring an attorney with expertise in health care law is in your best interest. In the short term, you can do your own legal research (e.g., at your local law school library) and familiarize yourself with the applicable state and federal health care laws.

do they do residential homes for depression?
I'm doing a health and social project for school, and we have to create our own residential care home. I was planning on making mine about depression, self-harm and eating disorders, but I didn't know if they done them types of residential.
Also if they do have this what are the general age groups? Do they do it for teenagers or is it for over 16s? Also residential care homes is were they live there isn't it?
Question answered by SJE
I haven't heard of residential homes for depression/self-harm/eating disorders in the UK. But as far as I am aware, there are (temporary) residential facilities for those with eating disorders, and inpatient facilities for those with depression/self-harm.
Usually, those under 18 committed with depression/self-harm issues are in the children's ward or the adolescent's ward depending on their age. Those over the age of 18 are usually in the adult's ward. (Either in general or specialist hospitals). To my knowledge, I don't know any permanent residential homes for mental health issues except for dementia and schizophrenia.

What would you like to ask?worked for a residential care home,been there 5 months. reported 2 members of staff?
worked for a residential care home,been there 5 months. reported 2 members of staff for getting residents up at 3.30am,now im being investegated for being a bully against the 1 of the staff members,who work the opposite shift to me. ive had a letter to say
Question answered by Landlord
OK. You reported your concerns. They reported theirs. I have no idea how a letter would help. If you made a false report that could certainly be seen as harassing. Harassing the co-workers when you are the new hire is not the greatest idea you ever had.
Why is Residential Care the fastest growing type of care for the elderly?
Why do more people chose residential care over nursing homes for healthcare for the elderly?
Question answered by Stella Mk 2
Its two totally different things. Residential care is a home with a little bit of care available if you need it. That is the obvious choice for the majority of people who are fairly independant , and just lonely or needing someone to call on occasionally.
Nursing homes are for totally dependant people - people with serious illnesses and severe disabilities like stroke victims , folks with dementia, people with debilitating arthritis. These people need round-the-clock nursing care - they need someone to get them in and out of bed, take them to the toilet, everything.
You can't compare the two - its like comparing apples and oranges. People chose the correct place to live depending on their circumstances.

I find your lack of proper English disturbing.
What you think is fair is irrelevant. Those are the rules.
Do you think that young kids mimicking others is deemed as inappropriate. ?
I think it is part of young peoples make up and development. But mimicking in some residential care homes is seen as disrespect- full. Such things as such as copying others accents is seen as bullying. please reply with your thoughts.
