Residential Care Homes,
A Senior Housing Phenomenon
Residential Assisted Living Homes 101
Based on research from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, an estimated 70% of people over age 65 will require some form of long-term care during their lifetime. Fidelity reports that a 65-year-old couple retiring in 2019 could expect to spend $285,000 on long-term care costs during retirement.
A Residential Assisted Living Home (RAL), sometimes called a Residential Care Home, is a home licensed by the state to provide non-medical care to seniors in a residential neighborhood. It typically provides a higher level of care than a traditional large assisted living facility, but a lower level of care than a traditional nursing home setting.
Having fewer residents, a Residential Care Home has higher staff to resident ratios and can provide care on a much more personalized level, and at a lower cost point than a large assisted living center.
Senior Housing options may differ in services offered from state to state. Some homes may provide a higher level of care while others focus on the basics. Depending on your state, a Residential Assisted Living Home can care for 4 to 16 or more residents. Most Residential Assisted Living homes offer private and semi-private rooms and are predominantly private pay facilities. Many will accept long term care insurance and the Veteran’s Aid and Attendance program.

With over 10,000 seniors turning 65 and 4,000 seniors turning 80 per day in America, there is a current and growing need for residential assisted living homes. Residential assisted living homes vastly outnumber the larger assisted living facilities in many cities and states.
