What about Board and Care?
These are licensed assisted living homes – just like the bigger communities.  

  • Subject to the same laws and inspections
  • Owners are licensed administrators
  • Some have hospice waivers

Where do these residential, board and care communities fit in?
  • More frail seniors who need closer supervision and oversight – most have 2 caregivers for the average of 6 residents, all day, and some have one awake caregiver at night.
  • Caregivers can be supervised to implement physical therapy on a more ongoing basis
  • Some communities owned by RN’s, can administer sliding scale diabetic care
  • Will hand feed, and prepare special meals
  • Able to anticipate and diffuse behaviors much more readily with fewer distractions.
  • Hospice friendly – if they have hospice waivers in place.
  • All work with full incontinence, more quickly and during the night.
  • ALL INCLUSIVE PRICING NOT LIKELY TO INCREASE DURING THE TIME OF RESIDENCY.

In San Diego County, pricing ranges from $1200 (rarely) to $10,000 (also rarely), but most are$2000-$4500 per month depending on land value, and the amount of competition in the area.

NO LONGER MUST FRAIL SENIORS GO TO A NURSING HOME. FOR LONG TERM CARE, THEY WILL RECEIVE MORE CARE IN A RESIDENTIAL BOARD AND CARE HOME.
