Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.

What are care homes?

Residential care homes are houses in residential neighborhoods that are equipped, adapted, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually between two and 10. Like assisted living communities, staff at care homes typically help residents with activities of daily living, including bathing, dressing, and medication management. Although residential care homes vary significantly depending on the community, services usually include:

  • Help with personal care
  • Medication management
  • Mobility assistance
  • Nutritious meals
  • Social activities and outings
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry

Learn More About Care Homes in Anchorage, AK


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.

Cost of Care Homes in Anchorage, AK

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.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation


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.
