Learn More About Care Homes in Santa Rosa, CA

Surrounded by redwood forests and the famed wineries of Sonoma County, Santa Rosa is a gem of a retirement destination. Creekside trails, nature and wildlife preserves, open-air shopping centers — they’re all waiting to be explored year round in the ideal Mediterranean climate of the North Bay area. Perhaps the city’s best-known attraction is the Charles Schulz Museum, where visitors can view giant recreations of Charlie Brown and the other “Peanuts” characters, but the Railroad Square Historic District and Pacific Coast Air Museum also capture local Santa Rosa history and host annual events. It’s one of California’s most visually appealing locales, too — popular movies have been filmed in and around Santa Rosa since the 1940s, so keep your eyes peeled.

In Santa Rosa, 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 Santa Rosa, CA

The median monthly cost of a room in a care home is about $3,500 both in Santa Rosa and 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.
