11 Residential Care Homes near Bellingham, WA

Residential care homes in Bellingham may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Bellingham 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 Bellingham, 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. From there, we’ll help you find the right fit, whether you’re staying on a budget or searching for luxury retirement communities.

We are also serving Residential Care Home facilities in surrounding neighborhoods like Downtown Bellingham and Samish Hill.
You may also consider nearby communities such as Lynden, Ferndale or Everson.

A New Life AFH Inc in Bellingham, WA

My mom has come here after she fell in the Assisted living facility she was living. The staff is great. very responsive to our needs. Mom needed a lot of help, including night care. The food is fantastic. Most meals are home made with organic produce. Owner is a dietitian and accommodate a variety of diets, food allergies or intolerances. My mom is treated with respect and since she has been here no more falls occurred. would recommend it to anyone looking for a safe, clean facility without the institutional look and feel

Among Friends in Lynden, WA

We moved our mother into Adult Family Lynden in July. The team is very warm, engaged and welcoming. She requires full assistance and not only receives the care required but the care team goes beyond that to involve her in activities, get her outdoors in their lovely gardens and grounds and encourage her to interact with other residents. We are very pleased with Among Friends Adult Family Home of Lynden.
