Learn More About Care Homes in Chapel Hill, NC

 

Home of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill offers residents all the resources and services of a modern city, like shopping centers, restaurants, health care facilities, and public transportation — plus all the vibrancy of a college town. The city features its own unique attractions like botanical gardens, museums, nature areas, and Kenan Memorial Stadium, home of the Tar Heels. Local businesses in downtown Chapel Hill and annual festivals, like the Festifall Arts Festival, celebrate the town’s local culture and community.

In Chapel Hill, 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 Chapel Hill, NC

The median monthly cost of a room in a care home in 2019 was about $2,500 in the Chapel Hill area and $5,000 in the state of North Carolina. 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.
