  • Board and lodge: room-and-board (with meals); some facilities offer 24-hour staffing and services-others do not
  • Board and care: room-and-board (with meals); some medical services provided
  • Assisted Living Settings: with meals, homemaker and/or personal care services available
  • Apartment Training Programs: specialized housing and services for persons with different disabilities
  • Semi-Independent Living Services Programs: apartment programs for developmentally disabled individuals; individuals who reside in these settings tend to be higher functioning than those who reside in adult foster homes
