New Hampshire Association of Residential Care Homes:

New Hampshire Association of Residential Care Homes (NHARCH) is the Granite State's trade and professional organization for residential and assisted living facilities. The Association, operating as a not-for-profit organization, is governed by a volunteer board of directors, elected by its members. A majority of the licensed beds in residential care/assisted living homes within the state are owned by NHARCH members. NHARCH is a statewide affiliated component of Argentum (formerly ALFA). In addition to promoting residential care and assisted living throughout the state, NHARCH works closely with regulators and facility owners/administrators to assure quality of living and care for residents in member homes. Elsewhere within this web site you can use our member roster to find needed care for a loved one, patient or client.

Who is NHARCH?

The New Hampshire Association of Residential Care Homes (NHARCH) is a non-profit association dedicated to promoting health, safety, ethical standards and practical efficiency in licensed assisted living facilities throughout New Hampshire. These facilities provide housing and care services for individuals with a variety of needs and income levels. Established in 1985, NHARCH is the state affiliate of Argentum and has grown to include as members approximately two-thirds of the assisted living providers and associated providers in the state. NHARCH serves as the voice of assisted living in New Hampshire, providing information and education, and advocating on behalf of our members and the seniors they serve. NHARCH members strive to provide residents with a standard of care that treats all residents with dignity, provides privacy and encourages independence and freedom of choice.

NHARCH has Industry Partner Members who provide important products and services to assisted living facilities here in New Hampshire. All assisted living facilities are encouraged to think of them first when looking to make a purchase or investigate a new product or service.

NHARCH is the primary provider of educational forums and programs for those working within our industry here in the Granite State. We provide a very active and informative educational program for industry administrators and personnel. We also have various communications vehicles for members and the general public.
