Retirement Homes & Senior Housing

Retirement homes are privately owned rental accommodations for seniors who are able to manage and pay for their own care. Assistance may include the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services provided by a trained staff person. 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 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. The housing is friendlier to older adults, more compact, with easier navigation and assistance in outside maintenance. A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. A retirement home is a multi-residence housing facility intended for senior citizens. Other licensure terms used for this philosophy of care include Residential Care Home, Assisted Care Living Facilities, and Personal Care Homes. 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. 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.
