Nursing Homes in Delaware

Overview of Nursing Homes in Delaware

Families considering senior living in Delaware will find themselves in a unique position. Of all its neighboring Northeastern U.S. states, Delaware is one of the smallest in area but also one of the most densely populated, and its residents are never too far from a coastline. Beyond the variety of outdoor recreation provided by the Atlantic shores or Chesapeake and Delaware Bays, Delaware’s largest metropolitan area, Wilmington, is well-connected to other major cities like Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. Of course, historic sites are plentiful throughout the state, as Delaware took the lead among colonies signing the U.S. Constitution in 1787 and therefore is known as “The First State.” Retirement in Delaware may mean fewer options for senior living, but opportunities are always nearby.

There are more than 10 nursing homes in Delaware. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can provide you with a list of nursing homes in Delaware to help you find the community that fits your needs and budget.

The median monthly cost of a private room in a nursing home in Delaware is about $11,400, according to Genworth.
