77 Residential Care Homes near Santa Maria, CA

Who are you searching for?

1 of 5

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


You may also consider nearby communities such as Arroyo Grande, Atascadero or Avila Beach.

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.

They have gone above and beyond. They're empathetic, sympathetic, and provide outstanding care. They work well with all of the members of our family as a whole. Our loved one has been a little bit of a harder to handle patient, and they've handled him just wonderfully. The facility itself is very clean and orderly, and they follow all the Covid protocols.

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.
