Care Homes in Portland, ME

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.

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 significantly.

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