  • Help with personal care
  • Medication management
  • Mobility assistance
  • Nutritious meals
  • Social activities and outings

This picturesque, bayside Marin County town offers all the resources and conveniences of a modern city — like shopping and dining options, health care facilities, and transportation — along with one-of-a-kind museums and recreational areas that allow residents to absorb the surrounding Northern California landscape. Some of San Rafael’s most popular destinations include the Smith Rafael Film Center, the Museum of International Propaganda, and McNears Beach County Park.

In San Rafael, 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.

Cost of Care Homes in San Rafael, CA

The median monthly cost of a room in a care home in 2019 was about $3,800 in San Rafael, $6,500 in the metropolitan area, and $3,500 in the state of California. 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.
