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.

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

Learn More About Care Homes in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Fort Lauderdale offers everything you could need for a tropical paradise in which to retire. Its pristine beaches and vibrant downtown provide a wide variety of options for leisure and entertainment – from state parks and botanical gardens, to museum tours and art festivals. Fort Lauderdale also has diverse shopping and dining options, and offers senior-friendly, ADA-compliant transportation.

In Fort Lauderdale, 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 Fort Lauderdale, FL

The median monthly cost of a room in a care home is about $3,500 in Fort Lauderdale, $3,200 in the metropolitan area, and $2,800 in the state of Florida. 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.
