Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Ethereal House provides temporary, emergency care in a safe, alcohol/drug-free environment to traumatized seniors escaping physical or emotional abuse, financial mistreatment, homelessness or the effects of self-neglect.

Description

Our mission is simple; we provide temporary, emergency care in a safe, alcohol/drug-free environment to traumatized seniors escaping physical or emotional abuse, financial mistreatment, homelessness or the effects of self-neglect.

Once the doors are opened, our temporary emergency-shelter, licensed as a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly, known as an RCFE or Board and Care Home, will provide up to 90 days temporary, round the clock care to seniors, 60 years or older, who cannot care for themselves. These facilities assist the senior with activities of daily living such as dressing, grooming, feeding, bathing, toileting and transferring. Generally, they are for-profit, long-term, private-pay homes. Ethereal House will contract with Riverside County to accept emergency placements through Adult Protective Services and accept the County-funded, low Non-Medical SSI Board and Care benefit. Traditional shelters are rarely equipped for the needs of these frail victims. Presently there are no shelter homes like this in Riverside County.
