Learn More About Care Homes in Roanoke, VA

Roanoke is a small but friendly city nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwestern Virginia. The city is famous for the illuminated Roanoke Star, which sets atop the summit of nearby Mill Mountain.

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 Roanoke, VA

In the state of Virginia, the median monthly cost for a room in a care home is about $4,900. 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.
