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 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. Housing arrangements for the future can be a stressful, anxiety-provoking topic for you and your family. More than two-thirds of the states use the licensure term assisted living. Generally, retirement homes are designed for seniors who need minimal to moderate support with their daily living activities. Other licensure terms used for this philosophy of care include Residential Care Home, Assisted Care Living Facilities, and Personal Care Homes. 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. The housing is friendlier to older adults, more compact, with easier navigation and assistance in outside maintenance. You have a close network of nearby family, friends, and neighbors. Retirement villages and retirement communities, unlike retirement homes, offer separate and autonomous homes for residents. Each state licensing agency has its own definition of the term it uses to describe assisted living. Independent living is a general name for any housing arrangement designed exclusively for seniors. You do not need to provide medical evidence that you need a minimum level of care.
