Family Model Sr. Living
Browse our ICWP Home Profiles
These homes are all approved to care for those with the Independent Care Waiver Program in Georgia.
The family model home is a smaller, more intimate model consisting of 6 beds or less. Typically, these homes are located in residential neighborhoods throughout Georgia. They are licensed and regulated by Healthcare Facility Regulation as with larger facilities and nursing homes. The goal of a Family Personal Care Home is to most closely approximate being at home. The small group of “residents” become a family and act accordingly.
Homeproviders, who are contracted and own and operate these small homes, often live in the home and have typically been caregivers for many years. All homeproviders are fingerprinted and record checked and Altrus does extensive screening on each candidate beyond that provided by licensure. Altrus subcontracts with approximately 300 homes throughout Georgia and this number continues to grow.
Our commitment is to ensure that each home offers a quality living environment for individuals requiring care. Our registered nurses supervise care with routine visits to each home. They review all medications, service records, menus, and document progress notes on each individual. This combination of custodial care and nursing oversight results in a home setting where people can improve and thrive. This ultimately is our goal.

Individuals have the ability to pay privately, of course. However, we are unique in offering multiple options for those who cannot afford to privately pay. We are able to connect people with the options available through Community Care Services Program, the SOURCE program, the ICWP program and other payor sources. We encourage all referrals regardless of income. For assistance please email Heather Feilmeier at HFeilmeier@altrus.us or call her at 1-800-354-6011.
