What Can You Bring to an Adult Family Home?

items you bring to an Adult Family Home

One of the first questions people have when they are considering an adult family home is what they can bring to one. This question is hard to answer as every adult family home is independently run. The good news is that there are a few commonalities between them on what you can bring, which can help you.


You can bring all of your clothes with you to the adult family home. While your closet may be smaller than the one you already have, you will have space in your bedroom to store clothes that do not fit in the closet.

Personal Care Items

You can bring all of your personal care items, such as razors, skin care products, favorite body wash and shampoo. All of the luxuries you enjoy at home for your personal care can also be enjoyed at an adult family home.

Special Cooking Items

While the adult family home has all of the basic cooking items you would need, if you have something special that you would like to keep or use at the home, you’re free to bring it. If you would like to bring all of your cookware with you, just ask the adult family home manager where you may be able to store them.


You can bring all of the linens that you love and are familiar. This can make the transition to an adult family home much easier. Bring your bed linens, blankets, towels, or anything else that would like to use living in the adult family home. These items may be provided to you at some homes, but sometimes, it’s just nice to have your own.


Bring all of the mementoes you have with you. These are very important to have with you, as they can help you get through any days when you’re feeling a bit under the weather mentally. Many of them will likely put a smile on your face, which is why it’s actually a good thing for you to bring them.

Hobby and Craft Items

As long as the hobby or craft isn’t massively huge, you can bring them with you to work on them at your leisure. Again, since this is beneficial to your health and well-being it is recommended.


It’s important to know that not all adult family homes allow pets. www.petlifetoday.com. Ask this question first if you have a pet you would like to bring with you, even if it’s as small as a bird.
