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. A nursing home is a place of residence for people who require constant nursing care and have significant deficiencies with activities of daily living. Other licensure terms used for this philosophy of care include Residential Care Home, Assisted Care Living Facilities, and Personal Care Homes. Assisted living comes by many names, such as residential care, board and care, or group homes. Nursing Home residents include the elderly and younger adults with physical or mental disabilities. Retirement villages and retirement communities, unlike retirement homes, offer separate and autonomous homes for residents. Nursing Home residents in a skilled nursing facility may also receive physical, occupational, and other rehabilitative therapies following an accident or illness. A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. 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. Other licensure terms used for this philosophy of care include Residential Care Home, Assisted Care Living Facilities, and Personal Care Homes. Staff is available twenty-four hours a day. More than two-thirds of the states use the licensure term assisted living.
