84 Residential Care Homes near Santa Monica, CA

Who are you searching for?

1 of 5

Residential care homes in Santa Monica may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Santa Monica 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 Monica, 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 Northeast, Wilshire Montana and Sunset Park.
You may also consider nearby communities such as Los Angeles, Inglewood or Riviera.

Las Casitas Assisted Living in Burbank, CA
4.5

I toured several facilities with my mother, [name removed], before deciding on Las Casitas. What struck me about Las Casitas was the sense of community and warmth of the caregivers. Several options we toured were vast residences and were too tough to imagine putting my mother into, but at Las Casitas I felt she was moving into a place where she would be cared for and nurtured. It is always hard to make these decisions to move your parent to a home, but the Administrator and staff made it as easy as possible. We are very glad to have made the choice to move to Las Casitas.

The Cottages of Lake Balboa 1 in Los Angeles, CA

My 89 year old mother had a fall in March of 2020, at the same time COVID was rising. She went from being hospitalized, to weeks in skilled nursing, and then we needed to find a Board and Care home for her to live in. Imagine having to manage your elderly parent's care from afar because not only do you not live in the area, but due to COVID you haven't been able to visit in person since she entered skilled nursing--and now have to find a place for her to live without being able to be there. It was an incredibly difficult, painful situation. We were incredibly lucky to be led to the the compassionate, kind, skilled team at Claredon Senior Living. Without ever meeting in person, we were able to work with them to find a place for our mother at the Cottages at Lake Balboa. [names removed] were responsive, a pleasure to work with, and truly committed and passionate about working with elders. The level of care she received was simply top of the line. Though she had dementia, she was able to share that she felt safe, cared for, and that the staff were just wonderful. The executive team met with relatives of patients on a Zoom call, and unsolicited, the other relatives welcomed us to the Lake Balboa family, shared that they felt 100% confident with the care their loved ones were receiving, and how grateful they were they were there. Any family would be lucky to have their loved one in their care.

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. Like assisted living communities, staff at care homes typically help residents with activities of daily living, including bathing, dressing, and medication management. Although residential care homes vary significantly depending on the community, services usually include:

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