Each state licensing agency has its own definition of the term it uses to describe assisted living. Assisted Living communities are regulated and licensed at the US state level. You do not need to provide medical evidence that you need a minimum level of care. A nursing home may be a good choice if you need a higher level of care temporarily after a hospitalization, but itís anticipated you will be able to return to home or another facility after a period of time. Retirement villages and retirement communities, unlike retirement homes, offer separate and autonomous homes for residents. 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 coordination of services by outside health careproviders. Senior Housing - find independent and assisted living facilities, nursing homes, retirement communities, and other elderly care. Assisted living comes by many names, such as residential care, board and care, or group homes. A retirement home is a multi-residence housing facility intended for senior citizens. Assistance may include the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services provided by a trained staff person. A nursing home may be a good choice if both medical and personal care needs have become too great to handle at home. Other licensure terms used for this philosophy of care include Residential Care Home, Assisted Care Living Facilities, and Personal Care Homes. Assisted living emerged in the 1990s as an eldercare alternative on the continuum of care for seniors for whom Independent living is no longer appropriate but who do not need the 24-hour medical care provided by a nursing home.

We moved my Mom here in 2012. She was cared for very well in the independent living area. After several months it was clear that she needed much more care as her Alzheimer's got progressively worse and she was unable to care for herself. We were fortunate that a suite became available in the secure wing at Summerwood just when she was approved for the additional health care. Since moving her physical health has improved considerably and she is a much happier person. She has daily supervision and the staff treat her very well.
