Each state licensing agency has its own definition of the term it uses to describe assisted living. 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. A retirement home is a multi-residence housing facility intended for senior citizens. 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. 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. Retirement villages and retirement communities, unlike retirement homes, offer separate and autonomous homes for residents. Staff is available twenty-four hours a day. More than two-thirds of the states use the licensure term assisted living. Assistance may include the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services provided by a trained staff person. A nursing home is a place of residence for people who require constant nursing care and have significant deficiencies with activities of daily living. Nursing Home residents include the elderly and younger adults with physical or mental disabilities. Staff is available twenty-four hours a day. A place in a retirement home can be paid for on a rental basis, like an apartment, or can be bought in perpetuity on the same basis as a condominium. A nursing home may be a good choice if both medical and personal care needs have become too great to handle at home. A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. There is a wide range of home care services that can help you maintain your independence within the comfort of your own home, from in home help to day care.
