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 Gaithersburg, MD

 

A northern suburb of Washington, D.C., Gaithersburg offers a peaceful, convenient retirement with easy access to shopping centers, health care facilities, and diverse dining options. The local area’s storied past can be explored at the Gaithersburg Community Museum and its original railroad station from the late 1800s, and local festivals like the Gaithersburg Book Festival contribute to the town’s charm and independent identity.

In Gaithersburg, 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 Gaithersburg, MD

The median monthly cost of a room in a care home in 2019 was about $4,000 in Gaithersburg, $4,300 in the metropolitan area, and $3,000 in the state of Maryland. 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.
