About The Homestead/ Barton FTHA

Family-Type Homes For Adults:
A Senior Assisted Living Alternative.

We are homes that provide help for adults who need aid in their daily activities, and who should not be left alone. We provide the needed supervision, and gentle kindness that a person would hope to find. We are not a NURSING FACILITY, but homes, ones in which we live with up to no more than six other elderly adults. We have family meals, picnics, cook outs, parties, holiday celebrations, family vacations, (for those able) and outings! We are an extended family. Our residents have been invited into our homes to actually share our lives.

Because we live together, we come to really know our people. (Visit our web site to see pictures of our last vacation!) The ratio of caregivers to residents is one to four...unheard of in other localities! We are not staffed only by a string of people who are here for forty hours a week and then go home. We give warm, loving care and provide the level of care that each client requires.

We accept many different individuals who require specific types of care, including those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Operators have First Aid Certification, CPR plus extensive caregiver training. We are licensed by New York State and inspected by divisions of Social Services.

The Homesteads are operated by wonderful ladies who actually reside in the homestead homes. All operators, prior to opening a home, work and train in the established homes. (as do all caregivers) The operators are kind women who were born to be caregivers. Because they live in the home with their small group of residents, they all become part of a new extended family. Our caregivers, give love and attention to all our residents. They each work in one specific home, but are quite capable of shifting from home to home, should the need arise. They know the residents very well, and understand each person’s needs.

In the Homesteads, each home is different and wonderful in it’s own way. Each has it’s own individual feel and setting. But each home must meet the high standards set by the Homesteads owners, and New York State. Each home is inspected and supervised closely by the owners and the home is expected to always represent the Homesteads in a loving and special way. The owners, Connie, plus daughters Lyn and Michelle, have been providing care for over twenty years. The first home was created in 1992, and other homes were added as the obvious need grew. Apalachin has become the location for our four homes.

Apalachin is a small country town that is easy going and welcoming. All our homes have comfortable decks and secure yards that are available for our residents to use and enjoy. The Barton Home has a lovely koi pond and beautiful gardens that all enjoy. A county setting is what we present and what our residents enjoy. The birds, and small wild life are around providing endless enjoyment, yet again we are located conveniently close to the Apalachin exit off of Route 17. Come take a tour of our homes and see what a wonderful option we can provide for your loved one.

All homes are close to State highway Route 17. This makes it easy to reach our homes from all around New York State and upper Pennsylvania. Binghamton and the Triple Cities are within a fifteen minute drive.

We Love Helping Families Find the Right Senior Care

"Mom moved into Atria and she loves it there so far. She thinks the staff is terrific, very conscientious, helpful and warm. I haven't heard her this happy in many, many years. I don't know if I would have even looked at this community if it weren't for your suggestions and help with the process, including the financial advice. I can't thank you enough."

My mom was a resident here for over 6 years. To say she was a "resident" is an understatement. The Homesteads are truly a HOME for your family. My mom and every other resident were treated like... more...
