Who are you searching for?

1 of 5

Residential care homes in San Diego may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. San Diego 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 San Diego, 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 Skyline, Castle and North Park.
You may also consider nearby communities such as El Cajon, National City or La Mesa.
