Board & Care homes are also known as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly. These are smaller independent homes that typically provide care and assistance for a smaller group of residents. Usually, these homes provide care for about 6 residents while some may have more.
Board & Cares commonly operate in a single-family home, in neighborhoods where there may not be any signage indicating it's presence. This can be an excellent option for residents who prefer a smaller more homely setting without large numbers of people.
There are several Board & Care homes in San Diego to choose from. With amazing and serene settings this can be an excellent choice for your loved one. Similar to larger sized Assisted Living communities, assistance with daily living is provided along with meals and socialization.
When deciding on whether to move into a Board & Care one should consider their level of desire and comfort for privacy. In Board & Care homes it is common for residents to have a roommate sharing a bedroom and/or bathroom.
These homes are safe and secure, licensed by The Department of Social Services, the same governing agency as the larger size Assisted Living communities.
