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. Some facilities provide minor help with medications as well. The usual retirement home pattern is that each person or couple in the home has an apartment-style room or suite of rooms. A retirement home is a multi-residence housing facility intended for senior citizens. Nursing Home residents in a skilled nursing facility may also receive physical, occupational, and other rehabilitative therapies following an accident or illness. Assisted living comes by many names, such as residential care, board and care, or group homes. The housing is friendlier to older adults, more compact, with easier navigation and assistance in outside maintenance. Assisted living is a philosophy of care and services promoting independence and dignity. 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. A nursing home, convalescent home, Skilled Nursing Unit, care home or rest home provides a specific type of care for its residents. An assisted living facility may be a good choice if you need more personal care services than are feasible at home or in an independent living retirement community. Generally, retirement homes are designed for seniors who need minimal to moderate support with their daily living activities. The usual retirement home pattern is that each person or couple in the home has an apartment-style room or suite of rooms. 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.
