Assistance may include the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services provided by a trained staff person. 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. The housing is friendlier to older adults, more compact, with easier navigation and assistance in outside maintenance. 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. Independent Living Communities enable residents to live as independently as possible, while providing certain services and social activities. More than two-thirds of the states use the licensure term assisted living. 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. 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. A nursing home may be a good choice if both medical and personal care needs have become too great to handle at home. 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. 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 retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given.
