Learn More About Care Homes in Cary, NC
This welcoming suburb is conveniently located just west of Raleigh on the southern end of North Carolina’s Research Triangle, which is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the state.
In Cary, 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.
