    I realize you are in Georgia but here in Florida we have an official title for what you want to do. It's called an Adult Family Care Home, or AFCA. It is for up to 5 residents, but it must actually be in your home. You, or one of your staff members, must live there full time.

    They are all over Miami, but I have seen fewer in other parts of Florida. Every one that I have ever been in (providing continuous care for one of their Hospice patient's) has been much nicer and more comfortable than most ALF's.
    I think it's a great way to stick your toe into the ALF water and see if you like it. At least see if you like running one.

    Good luck!

    Hmm, you know, that's something I hadn't considered, hospice care. I think it is worth thinking about. I don't know how well I would cope with getting attached to these patients in my home, knowing full well they will die.
    Do you have any idea where I would look, who I would call, to get information on AFCA's in GA? BON?
