Assistance may include the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services provided by a trained staff person. Assisted living is a philosophy of care and services promoting independence and dignity. A nursing home is a place of residence for people who require constant nursing care and have significant deficiencies with activities of daily living. A nursing home, convalescent home, Skilled Nursing Unit, care home or rest home provides a specific type of care for its residents. Retirement homes are privately owned rental accommodations for seniors who are able to manage and pay for their own care. 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. The housing is friendlier to older adults, more compact, with easier navigation and assistance in outside maintenance. Generally, retirement homes are designed for seniors who need minimal to moderate support with their daily living activities. A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. A nursing home is normally the highest level of care for older adults outside of a hospital.
