A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. Nursing Home residents include the elderly and younger adults with physical or mental disabilities. Retirement homes are also called retirement residences. The housing is friendlier to older adults, more compact, with easier navigation and assistance in outside maintenance. Assisted living residences or assisted living facilities provide supervision or assistance with activities of daily living. A nursing home may be a good choice if both medical and personal care needs have become too great to handle at home. A nursing home is normally the highest level of care for older adults outside of a hospital. 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. The housing is friendlier to older adults, more compact, with easier navigation and assistance in outside maintenance. Retirement homes are privately owned rental accommodations for seniors who are able to manage and pay for their own care.
