Residential care homes in Raleigh may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Raleigh care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

Older-adult care homes vary more than other options for senior living in Raleigh, so families can choose from a wide range of prices, amenities, and services. A Place for Mom will work with you to understand the cost of care homes.

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.
