Assisted living is a philosophy of care and services promoting independence and dignity. A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. Assisted living residences or assisted living facilities provide supervision or assistance with monitoring of resident activities to help to ensure their health, safety, and well-being. Nursing Home residents include the elderly and younger adults with physical or mental disabilities. Retirement villages and retirement communities, unlike retirement homes, offer separate and autonomous homes for residents. The usual retirement home pattern is that each person or couple in the home has an apartment-style room or suite of rooms. Other licensure terms used for this philosophy of care include Residential Care Home, Assisted Care Living Facilities, and Personal Care Homes. Assistance may include the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services provided by a trained staff person. Assisted living comes by many names, such as residential care, board and care, or group homes. Some facilities provide minor help with medications as well. More than two-thirds of the states use the licensure term assisted living. Nursing Home residents include the elderly and younger adults with physical or mental disabilities. An assisted living facility may be a good choice if you need more personal care services than are feasible at home or in an independent living retirement community.
