According to Assisted Living Today, the average cost of a care home is between $1,500 to $3,000 per month. The amount can vary from state to state.
Assisted Living Today explains that a care home is designed to provide seniors with the care they need in a home-like setting. Care homes are often a final decision for seniors who do not have a medical necessity for placement in a nursing home or lack the funds for an assisted living facility. Patients in care homes often have mental disorders and can no longer live independently.
Care homes are usually located in a single-family home in a residential neighborhood. In most cases, the maximum number of residents in a care home is three to four, Assisted Living Today notes.
