The paper contract is needed for a minimum legal standard of care and priceing but that legal minimum standard is just that the minimum standard.  Look for the personal and professional contract of the handshake from the individuals you are hiring to get the best and most complete care.

Small is better and you can realistically meet and know the administrator, owners and all the caregivers you are hiring.  Check out these Residential Care homes.
