    About My Business
    Located in Mechanicsville, Virginia - a suburb of Richmond, The Boarding House is a residential care facility established to provide an alternative to seniors uninterested in a large facility setting.
    About My Services
    The Boarding House provides many advantages versus an assisted living facility:
    • A client-to-caregiver ratio of 3-to-1 (most facilities operate near a 20-to-1 ratio) which results in much more personal attention for our residents.
    • A quiet neighborhood setting with an expansive lawn and beautiful outside sitting area.
    • All residents have their own bedroom, our belief is that everyone needs their own privacy at times.
    • Our caregivers live with our clients, which allows our residents and caregivers to form deep relationships, as opposed to the high turnover of staff at a facility.
    • Automobile transportation to scheduled appointments, no more waiting for a shared van or bus.
    • A monthly price that is lower than most assisted living communities in the area.
    Conditions I Am Unable To Treat
    Leaving home is a difficult decision for a senior. At The Boarding House our residents know that they will never be forced to move to another location due to lack of functionality.
    Experience And Credentials
    The Boarding House is a part of The Senior's Companion, which has been providing elder care solutions to the Richmond area since 2005.
