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 Personal Care Homes in Boise, ID


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 Personal Care Homes in Boise, ID

The median monthly cost for a room in a care home in Boise is about $5,000 in the city proper and $4,183 within the metropolitan area. In the state of Idaho, the median monthly cost for a room in a care home is around $3,850. 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 Boise for you or your loved one.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation


Located on the Boise River and in close proximity to the foothills of the Rocky and Owyhee Mountains, the region is well-known as a great destination for fans of the outdoors. Skiing, hiking, swimming, and fishing are all very popular pastimes in the area. The Boise River Greenbelt is a walking and cycling path that travels the length of the Boise River through the city, spanning over 30 miles in total. The path takes travellers on a scenic course to visit various sites, including numerous parks and bridges.

Downtown Boise also has its fair share of sights and activities. Julia Davis Park is an 89-acre park created in 1907 that is the site of several notable museums and attractions. Adjacent to the park is the Idaho Black History Museum – the Pacific Northwest’s oldest museum of African-American history, which is housed in the century-old St. Paul Baptist Church. The park itself is home to a rose garden, the Idaho State Historical Museum, and Zoo Boise, which features animals from all over the world. Also located on park grounds is the Boise Art Museum, which focuses on contemporary realist art as well as modern ceramics, and features rotating exhibits throughout the year.

Idaho, and Boise in particular, is known for having one of the largest Basque communities in the United States. Downtown Boise is home to the “Basque Block” – an enclave consisting of a market, restaurant, markets, a museum and cultural center, and more, highlighting the city’s Basque heritage and history. Every five years Boise hosts the Jaialdi festival — a Basque cultural festival drawing thousands of visitors and featuring music, food, dancing, and scheduled events.


Public transportation in the Boise region is operated by Valley Regional Transit and consists of a bus system that travels much of the city, and operates throughout the day. The most frequent bus trips are made during the midday hours. Senior discounts are offered to individuals 65 years of age and older, and are typically 50% off of standard fare prices.
