Expect an unexpected retirement in this northwestern suburb of Phoenix. With easy access to shopping and dining options and health care facilities, Surprise offers residents a relaxing life of convenience if they choose — but all the wonders and outdoor recreational opportunities of the Central Arizona wilderness are always close by. Within town, local festivals, parks, and historic sites combine to give Surprise a well-rounded identity and distinctive culture.

In Surprise, 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 Surprise, AZ

The median monthly cost of a room in a care home in 2019 was about $3,000 in Surprise, $3,100 in the metropolitan area, and $3,000 in the state of Arizona. 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.
