689 Residential Care Homes near Oakland, CA

Who are you searching for?

1 of 5

Residential care homes in Oakland may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Oakland care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

Older-adult care homes vary more than other options for senior living in Oakland, so families can choose from a wide range of prices, amenities, and services. A Place for Mom will work with you to understand the cost of care homes. From there, we’ll help you find the right fit, whether you’re staying on a budget or searching for luxury retirement communities.

We are also serving Residential Care Home facilities in surrounding neighborhoods like Redwood Heights, East Lake and Paradise Park.
You may also consider nearby communities such as Alameda, Alamo or Albany.

I love Golden Care but having issue with A Place for Mom. Golden Care is great and I'm pleased, but I went on my own to the facility, not through A Place for Mom.

Mori Manor in San Leandro, CA

Unfortunately this was not a good match for my sister-in -law. The rules were a bit too strict. She was not allowed to go out by herself for a walk, and that was a problem. There needs to be some allowances for different levels of abilities. The place is clean and very caring. Some of the blame falls with my sister-in-law who was a bit too chatty for the other tenants.

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.

  • Social activities and outings
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
