74 Residential Care Homes near San Luis Obispo, CA

Who are you searching for?

1 of 5

Residential care homes in San Luis Obispo may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. San Luis Obispo 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 Luis Obispo, 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.

Villa Care Home I in Santa Maria, CA
5.0

Villa Care Home was definitely the best choice for my grandmother. They are very family orientated and provide her with love and companionship. They are very attentive to her and her care needs. My grandmother also has other friends who live here so that is another plus. We have not yet had the opportunity to dine with her but the food smells wonderful! It is a nice, clean, and homey atmosphere. Here at Villa Care, they worked with us on the cost and it made it very affordable for us to have our grandmother have such excellent care. We would highly recommend this community to friends and family.
