Residential Care Home in Nevada

Located in the heart of the Southwest, Nevada is nicknamed “The Silver State” for the silver rush that occurred during the mid 1800s which helped put the state on the map. Nevada is perhaps best known for its largest city, Las Vegas – a prime entertainment capital and the setting for countless books and movies. While the city’s popularity is undeniable and its tourism and casino industries play a massive part in the state’s economy, there’s much more to Nevada than gambling. The natural beauty of the state is awe-inspiring, ranging from snow-capped peaks to expansive deserts, and even Las Vegas itself, with its warm temperatures and Southwestern charm, can be a great place to retire and call home.

Nevada Care Home Regulations

Each state regulates senior living communities differently. Because care homes operate similarly to assisted living communities, states may regulate care homes within their guidelines for assisted living. You can use APFM’s guide to assisted living regulations to learn more about access to community records in Nevada.

In Nevada, care homes — sometimes called residential 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 Living

Overall, the cost of living in Nevada is considered to be less affordable than the national average. The state has a high overall housing cost, mainly because the Las Vegas metropolitan area is one of the country’s premiere vacation and retirement spots. Nevada also has a high cost of transportation, mostly due to a lack of public transit in some areas and a dependence on personal vehicles. All index scores are based on a scale with the national average set at 100.

The majority of Nevada has a semi-arid or cold desert climate with hot summers, cold winters, and below average precipitation levels. The southern tip of the state has a warm desert climate that gets extremely hot in the summer. Portions of Death Valley, one of the hottest places on the planet, are located in this region of the state, along its border with California. Nevada has an extremely low humidity level and below average precipitation levels, which have earned it the title of “driest state in the U.S.” This dry desert climate, in addition to countless opportunities for entertainment, make Nevada one of the most popular destinations in the country to retire.
