CAHF's members include:

  • Skilled-nursing facilities (SNFs) – Sometimes called "nursing homes" or "convalescent hospitals," these facilities provide comprehensive nursing care for chronically ill or short-term residents of all ages, along with rehabilitation and specialized medical programs.
  • Subacute-care facilities – Specialized units often in a distinct part of a nursing facility, subacute-care facilities focus on intensive rehabilitation, complex wound care and post-surgical recovery for residents of all ages who no longer need the level of care found in a hospital.
  • Intermediate-care facilities (ICFs) – In addition to room and board, these facilities provide regular medical, nursing, social and rehabilitative services for people not capable of full independent living.
  • Intermediate-care facilities for persons with intellectual/developmental disabilities (ICFs/DD) Known in California as intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual  disabilities (ICFs/DD), intermediate care facilities for the intellectually disabled - habilitative (ICFs/DD-H) and intermediate care facilities for the intellectually disabled - nursing (ICFs/DD-N). At the federal level, these facilities are  known  as intermediate care facilities for the intellectually disabled (ICFs/IID).
    ICFs/DD have 16 or more beds; ICFs/DD-H and DD-Ns have 15 or fewer beds and average six beds.
  • Institutes for mental health (SNF/STPs) – Designated in California as "special treatment programs," these facilities provide extended treatment periods for people of all ages with chronic mental health problems; most of the clients are younger than 65. Specialized staff serve clients in a secured environment.
