UPDATE: The CANINE CABINA is currently closed and no longer accepting new residents, as we've moved to another state. We appreciate all of the wonderful relationships we've made over the years and want to thank our previous residents for their wonderful support and involvement in our home

The CANINE CABANA is a custom-designed, completely handicapped accessible private residence built in 2005.  The owner, a retired NC physician, is offering licensed assisted living and personal care service to elderly or disabled adults who need long term care, short term convalescent care, respite care, or a rest home.  This personalized care will be offered to up to 3 residents.  The CANINE CABANA Family Care Home is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by caring, trained adults including our live-in retired doctor and her husband, a retired RN, CNAs, and others.  Although not a nursing home, the Canine Cabana can offer many of the same services in a more intimate setting.  Persons with aggressive behavior, unstable mental illness, or significant dementia are better served in more controlled therapeutic environments than we offer.


The CANINE CABANA contains 2,487 sq ft of heated space, is dog-friendly with a spacious fenced backyard, beautiful landscaping, and over 1,200 sq ft of decks.  It is VERY handicapped accessible with many universal design and ADA features including barrier-free 48” corridors, 36” doors, grab bars by all toilets, and the large roll-in showesr.  The 15,000 volt generator provides emergency backup power to critical items including the elevator, refrigerator/freezer, hot water heater, and room lighting and electric outlets.


All meals are provided with accommodation to individual resident’s preferences and dietary restrictions.  Residents who wish to prepare meals can do so under direct supervision.  Assistance is provided for Activities of Daily Living (ADL) such as bathing, dressing, using the toilet, getting in and out of bed, medication management, and getting around.  Residents participate in the planning of all meals, activities, and local outings.  Transportation is available for local medical appointments.  The CANINE CABANA has complementary wireless High Speed Internet access and unlimited domestic long distance phone calls.  


The CANINE CABANA is Alcohol and Drug Free.   Residents who require long term abuseable medication such as tranquilizers or narcotics are not generally appropriate for this Family Care Home.
