Who are you searching for?

Residential care homes in Sarasota may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Sarasota 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 Sarasota, 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. From there, we’ll help you find the right fit, whether you’re staying on a budget or searching for luxury retirement communities.

Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

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.

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. 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:

  • Help with personal care
  • Medication management
  • Mobility assistance
  • Nutritious meals
  • Social activities and outings
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry

Learn More About Care Homes in Sarasota, FL

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 Sarasota, FL

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 Sarasota for you or your loved one.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

On the outside, Sarasota might present itself as a beach town, but beneath the surface is a varied cultural landscape. In the early part of the 20th century, the city was home to many performing arts venues and hosted stage performances of numerous celebrities. Art collector Mable Burton Ringling, along with her husband, circus magnate John Ringling, established their namesake art museum in Sarasota in 1927. The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art is a Sarasota landmark that still operates today, and has been deemed the official state art museum of Florida. The museum’s collection consists of over 10,000 works in all media, spanning from the 16th century to modern eras and representing artists from across the globe. The art museum’s campus also consists of a separate museum dedicated to the circus, as well as Ca’ d’Zan, the restored Ringlings’ mansion originally built in 1926.

The city is also home to the Sarasota Orchestra, founded in 1949, and still in regular operation today. Every year in June, the orchestra hosts the three-week-long Sarasota Music Festival, an exhibition of chamber music which draws internationally-acclaimed performers and musicians.

Aside from its cultural offerings, Sarasota’s reputation as a beach town definitely holds water. The city’s coast along the Gulf of Mexico is lined by six islands, each with pristine beaches. Longboat Key, the longest of Sarasota’s island beaches, is a calmer beach with a relaxing atmosphere and tends to be less crowded than other options. Siesta Key is another island which consists of multiple beaches. Its namesake beach is often regarded as one of the best beaches in the world. In Venice, a short trip south of the city, one can find Caspersen Beach. A great option if you don’t feel like trekking to an island, Caspersen Beach features hiking trails and boardwalks, and the nearby Brohard Paw Park — the only dog-friendly beach in Sarasota County.

Transportation

Sarasota features a helpful public bus system operated by Sarasota County Area Transit, or SCAT. These buses feature routes which cover a wide range of the city and run daily from roughly 5:30 am to 10:30pm. SCAT also runs the Siesta Key Breeze Trolley — a free, open-air trolley that runs along the beaches of Siesta Key and is in operation 365 days a year. Sarasota is not the most convenient city to rely on walking for accomplishing most daily tasks, but the pleasant Florida weather permits outdoor strolls to be a frequent possibility.
