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 Savannah, GA

Residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually between two and 10. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized activities, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically don’t provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

A Place for Mom’s local Senior Living Advisors can help you find the right residential care home in Savannah for you or your loved one.

Cost of Care Homes in Savannah, GA

For the state of Georgia, the median monthly cost for a room in a care home is about $2,100. However, the cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Because the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore vary vastly.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Known around the world as one of the gems of the American South, Savannah truly embodies “Southern hospitality.” In fact, the city’s nickname is “The Hostess City of the South.” From the Colonial-era architecture of its historic district, to the French Gothic style of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, to the Spanish moss drooping from its countless live oak trees, Savannah defines “Southern charm” and draws millions of visitors every year with its tropical and culturally eclectic appearance.

Savannah boasts a vibrant arts scene largely upheld by the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), a prestigious art school which operates several museums, theaters, and annual events like the Savannah Film Festival and the Sidewalk Arts Festival. Popular Savannah museums include the SCAD Museum of Art, Telfair Academy, the Savannah African Art Museum, and the Beach Institute. Many well-known movies have been filmed in Savannah and remain must-see spots for visitors: Forrest Gump famously recalled his past while sitting on a park bench in Chippewa Square, and Clint Eastwood’s film adaptation of “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” captures the haunting allure of Bonaventure Cemetery.

Though it’s not quite a coastal city (Tybee Island’s beaches are about 17 miles away), the city’s climate and placement along the Savannah River may suggest otherwise. River Street — with its award-winning restaurants, old-fashioned pubs, antique shops, art galleries, riverboat cruises, and unique hotels — is one of Savannah’s top tourist attractions. Just south of the river is the city’s historic district, where you can walk to 22 city squares — all within 2 to 4 blocks of each other. The squares, which were part of colonial Savannah’s original design, vary in size and feature fountains, monuments, playgrounds, and parks.

Transportation

Savannah provides public transportation via Chatham Area Transit (CAT) and its network of buses. CAT also runs a free shuttle called the “Dot” — arriving at stops every 10 minutes, seven days a week — to connect residents and visitors to Savannah’s downtown area and all its main attractions. The Dot’s Forsythe loop extends south to Forsyth Park, while the downtown loop runs mainly east and west, closer to the Savannah River.

Another transportation option is the Savannah Belles Ferry, which carries downtown passengers across the Savannah River to Hutchinson Island and the Savannah Convention Center.

Biking is also a great way to experience Savannah’s downtown area and city squares: The League of American Bicyclists named Savannah a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community in 2017.
