A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. A nursing home is a place of residence for people who require constant nursing care and have significant deficiencies with activities of daily living. Assisted living residences or assisted living facilities provide supervision or assistance with activities of daily living. 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.

Other licensure terms used for this philosophy of care include Residential Care Home, Assisted Care Living Facilities, and Personal Care Homes.

A nursing home may be a good choice if both medical and personal care needs have become too great to handle at home. 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.
