Charities Housing acquired a collection of senior group homes from Senior Housing Solutions in 2013. These homes are located throughout the County of Santa Clara. Each home typically has 3-5 bedrooms with 2-3 bathrooms. Residents share common living, dining, kitchen, and laundry facilities. Private rear yard patio provides outdoor living spaces. Residents take responsibility and share common household chores such as cleaning and recycling. Two main benefits of shared living for seniors include: alleviating the stress and loneliness often associated with living alone and, maintaining independence through interdependence. Resident services are provided by Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County.
