Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Residential care homes in San Mateo may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. San Mateo 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 Mateo, 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 Assisted Living facilities in surrounding neighborhoods like Santa Clara - South 101, Milpitas - Southwestern and West San Jose.
You may also consider nearby communities such as San Francisco, Oakland and Fremont.
