Who are you searching for?

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

Review ofStratford at Beyer Park
4.0

Our family had an in person tour experience, and based off the atmosphere where it was location, it as in more of a confined area and not a lot of grounds for the residents to walk around on. The rooms we saw seemed a little more clinical and did not have that homey feeling, but there also wasn't a lot of availability so maybe we just did not get a chance to see other rooms.

Crossroads Manor is amazing. Our loved one was scared to move; however, the team at Crossroads went above and beyond to make our loved one feel comfortable with moving. This allowed our loved one to adjust quickly. The staff are the nicest people to all the residents. They decorate for all the holidays and then even have celebrations for all the resident's birthdays. They allow a maximum of six residents. They have been accommodating with us visiting our loved one. They seem to really enjoy what they do for the residents.
