Staff is available twenty-four hours a day. 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 is a philosophy of care and services promoting independence and dignity. A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. The usual retirement home pattern is that each person or couple in the home has an apartment-style room or suite of rooms. A nursing home, convalescent home, Skilled Nursing Unit, care home or rest home provides a specific type of care for its residents. Assisted living comes by many names, such as residential care, board and care, or group homes. More than two-thirds of the states use the licensure term assisted living. 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. 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. Nursing Home residents include the elderly and younger adults with physical or mental disabilities. You do not need to provide medical evidence that you need a minimum level of care. Generally, retirement homes are designed for seniors who need minimal to moderate support with their daily living activities. Retirement villages and retirement communities, unlike retirement homes, offer separate and autonomous homes for residents.
