There is another option for assisted living in San Diego County. They are senior assisted living homes, also called board and care or residential care homes.
If your loved one can no longer live independently, but a larger assisted living community doesn’t seem quite right, one of San Diego County’s senior assisted living homes may be just what you’re looking for.
How do you find the right home?
We have hundreds of them in San Diego County. Elder Answers can help.
Board and care homes are fully licensed for assisted living. They have the same license as the larger care communities.
Some of the main differences are size of the home and ratio of staff to senior.
Senior assisted living homes are houses in residential neighborhoods. Most take care of 6 seniors. A few may have up to 15.
These small residential care settings can provide the care your loved one needs in a comfortable environment that feels more like home.
