What is an RCFE?
Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) serve persons 60 and older. They provide room, board, housekeeping, supervision, and personal care assistance with basic activities like personal hygiene, dressing, eating, and walking. Facilities usually centrally store and distribute medications for residents to self-administer. See What is Residential Care for the Elderly?
Is there a waitlist to get in?
We are a brand new RCFE currently accepting new applications for a January 15 move in date. We have 5 openings at this time. Apply now!
Do you accept residents who require Hospice?
We do accept residents who require hospice services and care. The resident will need to receive medical care from a licensed hospice agency while living in our facility.
Do you accept residents with dementia?
RCFE's are not permitted to accept residents who require 24 hours skilled nursing care. Unfortunately memory care services do not fall under the normal operations of an RCFE. There is a dementia "test" which residents may take to determine if they are eligible.
Is this a private pay facility?
Like most RCFE's Perry's Home Care is a private pay facility.
Is this facility affordable?
While we are glad to offer competitive rates, we also understand that assisted living can be very expensive. To learn more about paying for private care facilities like ours check out this helpful article: If You Can't Afford Assisted Living

We do have a Registered Nurse on site. Marcy Perry has been an RN for 13 years and is now delighted to own and operate Perry's Home Care.
Is there around the clock staff?
Our staff is here night and day to provide all the support and care our residents need!
Does this facility include private rooms?
Our newly renovated facility has 3 private rooms and 1 double room.
Is there internet access?
We have free 5-G WiFi available for all residents and visitors to enjoy.
Can residents receive visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Visitation is important for a person's mental and social wellbeing. Residents have a personal right to have visitors. All visitors must make an appointment and follow all COVID-19 safety protocol and screening.
Can residents leave the facility?
Activities and outings are important. Residents may leave the facility when accompanied by a friend or family member. The resident will need to be signed in and out and the details of the trip as well as contact information for the caretaker will need to be communicated in advance. Great care should be taken by residents and family to minimize the risk of COVID-19. Please exercise extreme caution and restraint when leaving the facility.
NOTE: the present shelter in place order in Contra Costa County requires that one only leave one's home for essential services.
