I think that it would be more than enough for 5 days. These meals are NOT sufficient for a construction worker but are more than enough for the average adult.
I would absolutely NOT rely on these foods to feed 6 people in a personal care home for five days, as their needs are different from normal adults, and the package items require some preparation.
One of the factors people consider when buying this product is its mobility so that they can run away, or "Bug out" in an emergency.
If you are trying to build an emergency storage section for an enclosed community like a personal care facility you are better off planning a menu based on your personal experience, go into walmart and buy exactly what you need, including canned goods & etc, and you will probably save money while giving them better food to eat.
A far more important problem to address, which is almost always overlooked, is how you are going to prepare the product in an emergency. You will need a stove of some kind and sufficient fuel to cook the food.
Also I would suggest you pay a good deal of attention to water storage. I noticed in emergency situations that we always used more water than anticipated. Also, some thought should be given as to how you are going to keep their medications should power fail.

Yep, of you have 6 people it would last you 5 days. Each person would be getting about 2073 calories per day.
