Residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.
In the state of Alaska, the median monthly cost for a room in a care home is about $6,000. However, the cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.
A Place for Mom’s local Senior Living Advisors can help find the right residential care home in Anchorage for you or your loved one.
Anchorage has an extremely high cost of living because it is the most isolated major city in the United States. The cost-of-living index and the grocery index are both rated much higher than the national average of 100. Almost all of the goods in the city are more expensive because they have to be flown into the city during periods when the weather conditions permit air travel.
There are 5 general hospitals serving the Anchorage area.
The climate is classified as subarctic, characterized by long, very cold winters and short, cool-to-mild summers.
The peak air quality conditions are rated as moderate. This means that those who are unusually sensitive should consider limiting the amount of time spent on outdoor exertion.

Even though Anchorage is situated right on the edge of the vast Alaskan wilderness, living in the city often can feel like you are in the heart of nature. On clear nights, residents may sometimes see the northern lights from their homes. For outdoor recreation there are rafts, kayaking, or rented boat tours that can take you fishing or even off the beaten path to see unparalleled wildlife and stunning glaciers.
Culturally, Anchorage is an epicenter of Native American and First Nation art. For a fun day out there are plenty of museums and zoos, such as the Alaskan Zoo which showcases a wide array of native and exotic wildlife. The Alaskan Aviation Museum showcases how integral the history of air travel is to the region with a collection of vintage aircraft and memorabilia. Scenic views can be found in and around Anchorage, with popular spots such as Beluga Point for whale watching or the Alyeska Aerial Tram which goes a stunning 2,300 feet in the air.
The People Mover bus system includes regular all-day service routes on many of the city’s major streets. Many routes terminate at the Downtown Transit Center. Usually, the services are only once an hour, though they recently went through some redesigns to better serve the people of Anchorage.
