Care Homes costs differ by location and facility, as many communities offer different levels of care, amenities, and activities. Prices also vary based on how much — or how little — assistance a senior needs.
Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.
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:
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.
In the state of Florida, the median monthly cost for a room in a care home is about $2,800. 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.
A Place for Mom’s local Senior Living Advisors can help find the right residential care home in Miami for you or your loved one.

The Miami metropolitan area is the seventh largest urban area in the US and is home to a rich culture and a very diverse community. Miami has one of the largest populations of Cuban Americans in the country, and the city’s culture is reflective of their history and influence in the region. Miami’s “Little Havana” neighborhood emerged in the 1960s as an enclave of Cuban immigrants began to establish a thriving community. The politics of Miami often lean left of center, and the Miami-Dade region tends to vote blue in major elections. The Miami region is the 12th largest economy in the country and is known for various major industries. PortMiami is considered the busiest cruise port in the world, and Miami as a whole ranks second only to New York City as a major destination for international tourism in the US.

Miami is considered moderately friendly to members of the LGBTQ+ community. This means that for the most part, members of the community can participate in public life without fear of bigotry or discrimination. However, this may differ from neighborhood to neighborhood.
The Miami area is a vibrant cultural center with no shortage of options for things to do. The excellent weather permits year-round outdoor activities and the region is known for several world-famous festivals. The “Little Havana” neighborhood hosts the yearly Calle Ocho festival, originally focusing on the contributions and history of Cuban Americans, but recently expanding to include participation of those from other Latin American countries as well. Calle Ocho is primarily known as a music festival, focusing on Latin American and Caribbean genres. The festival takes place across 28 blocks and features 30 stages of entertainment as well as food and other festivities. Miami is also known for its arts community, hosting the yearly Art Basel festival, which showcases the works of emerging contemporary artists from around the world. Art Basel lasts for several days and draws a worldwide crowd of famous artists, celebrities, and others to observe works in all types of media.
No discussion about living in Miami would be complete without mention of its celebrated beaches, and there are certainly plenty to choose from. Known for its white-sand beaches, pristine waters, and art deco hotels, South Beach is perhaps the most well-known of them all. Such notoriety can often mean large crowds, but it’s worth a visit. For a quieter and more historic getaway, stop by Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park Beach. A charmingly rustic affair, this park features nature trails as well as a historic lighthouse built in the 1820s. For nearby dining options, check out Boater’s Grill — a waterfront restaurant specializing in seafood and authentic Cuban cuisine.
Miami is also celebrated as a sports city, with good reason. The city itself is home to approximately 14 golf courses, including multiple public options, but the surrounding area has plenty more. The state of Florida as a whole boasts over a thousand golf courses, both public and private, with a great number in the southern portion of the state. Miami has plenty to offer in the way of professional sports as well, no matter your interests. The professional teams that call Miami home include the Miami Dolphins (football), Miami Heat (basketball), Miami Marlins (baseball), Florida Panthers (hockey), and the Inter Miami CF (soccer).
