Generally, retirement homes are designed for seniors who need minimal to moderate support with their daily living activities. 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. 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. More than two-thirds of the states use the licensure term assisted living. An assisted living facility may be a good choice if you donít need the round-the-clock medical care and supervision of a nursing home. You have a close network of nearby family, friends, and neighbors. Assistance may include the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services provided by a trained staff person. A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. Assisted living comes by many names, such as residential care, board and care, or group homes. Nursing Home residents in a skilled nursing facility may also receive physical, occupational, and other rehabilitative therapies following an accident or illness. Assisted living residences or assisted living facilities provide supervision or assistance with coordination of services by outside health careproviders. 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.
