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 Raleigh, NC

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 Raleigh, NC

In the state of North Carolina, the median monthly cost for a room in a care home is about $5,000. 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.

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

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

The second-largest city in North Carolina, Raleigh is a bustling metropolitan area with plenty to offer in the way of activities and entertainment. Known as “The City of Oaks,” activities in Raleigh can consist of cultural interests such as museums and festivals, or bucolic getaways in the surrounding natural beauty of the area.

Since 1932, Raleigh has been home to the North Carolina Symphony, which tours the state throughout the year but is headquartered in downtown Raleigh at the Meymandi Concert Hall, part of the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Also located in the neighborhood is the Carolina Ballet, operating for over 20 years and receiving both national and international praise. The ballet is funded by a multi-million dollar budget, employing 38 dancers in 8 programs per season in works by legendary masters and contemporary choreographers. The Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh, also known as CAM, is an ever-changing curated experience of contemporary art and design housed in a 1910 warehouse in downtown Raleigh.

For a relaxing opportunity to take your mind off the pace of the city, check out the Umstead Hotel and Spa located in nearby Cary.

Umstead State Park is a free park with 22 miles of forest hiking trails, as well as nature studies, fishing locations, canoe rentals, and campgrounds, all located within Raleigh city limits.
