Residential Care Home in California

From old-growth Redwood forests to white sandy beaches, California has earned its nickname as The Golden State for good reason. California is home to great weather, year-round sunshine, and unmatched beauty. When it comes to board care homes, California has many great options.

The median monthly cost of a care home in California is about $3,500. 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.

It was very clean. They were very friendly. My mom just moved there and I haven't seen a lot of activities yet so I can't give a rating on that, really. I'm happy. They seem very knowledgeable.

At Home in Santa Barbara
4.8

Our A Place For Mom Rep made finding a new place for mom as simple as can be. He was so nice, we needed a quick move and A Place For Mom and At Home in Santa Barbara accommodated. We looked at four other places, two were like nursing homes or hospitals and very expensive, far above our budget. One facility that was very nice had amenities that were not practical for my mom. For the price and location At Home in Santa Barbara seems like the best value for us. The staff turned us on to the shuttle that transports residents to the doctors, which has been so helpful. We are very happy with At Home. To be honest this place wouldn't be for everybody, it is pretty bare bones, but it's always clean, the residents are well fed, and I've never smelled a bad smell. I feel like it is a really good place but it's not fancy; very practical and well taken care of.

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.
