Thrive Care Home Consulting


Affordable Policy Manuals

We create fully customized policy and procedure manuals, that can be personalized, to help get you licensed in the state where the facility will be located. Our manuals are created based on your specific state’s rules, regulations, standards, and codes. If your state's surveyor requests revisions, they can be done free of charge for a certain time by our Thrive Care Home Consulting staff per your project contract.

What is a residential care home?
A residential care home is a facility where individuals live every day, 24/7, 365 days a year. Sometimes licensed residential care homes are referred to as group homes, community living arrangements, community support services, board and care, personal care homes, family care homes, assisted living facilities, or adult foster care. Facilities might also go by another name depending on the state.
