Our members are licensed by the Department of Social services and have to abide by The Health and Safety Code and Title 22 just like corporate operators like Sunrise and Brookdale. The biggest difference is that larger operators are located in commercial areas and our members are located in residential communities. Our members strive to provide care which is affordable.

6Beds, Inc. promotes affordable, quality care for California seniors and disabled adults in a safe home-like environment.
Our members operate residential communities licensed by the Department of Social Services in a smaller setting of six residents. Operators exceeding six beds require special use permits; however those that serve six or fewer residents are protected by the Fair Housing Act of 1988 allowing people with disabilities to live in residential neighborhoods and in family-type settings – which led to the origin of our organization’s name.
Forty-percent of our members serve individuals with developmental disabilities. A small percentage (2%) serve the mentally ill and the remaining members serve the frail elderly.
