Care Homes in Bakersfield, CA

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.

The median monthly cost for a room in a care home in Bakersfield is about $2,100 in the city proper, and $2,342 within the metropolitan area. In the state of California, the median monthly cost for a room in a care home is around $3,500. 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 Bakersfield for you or your loved one.

Cost of Living in Bakersfield, CA

Like many cities on the West Coast, the cost of living in Bakersfield is nearly ten points above the national average of 100. This is reflected in the city's high property cost and the fact that over 20 percent of the population pays more than 30 percent of their household income on rent.

Cost-of-living index Grocery index Median rent Rent burden Median home value Median family income Estate tax Sales tax
109 98 $1,383 20.7% $227,388 $60,058 no estate tax or inheritance tax 7.2%
