Residential care homes, also known as senior group homes, seek to provide seniors with the happy medium between getting the level of care they need and living in an environment as comfortable and personal as their own home was. Residential care homes tend to be smaller than other retirement communities, so residents get a more personal level of care and become part of a new close-knit community. Most communities have several residential care homes nearby, so seniors have options for finding one that's the best fit. Finding the right residential care home for you or a loved one is a big decision.

Start by searching the residential care communities close to where you want to live, and read reviews to see what other seniors and their families have to say about their experiences.
