Retirement homes are also called retirement residences. Assistance may include the administration or supervision of medication, or personal care services provided by a trained staff person. Generally, retirement homes are designed for seniors who need minimal to moderate support with their daily living activities. Independent Living Communities enable residents to live as independently as possible, while providing certain services and social activities. A nursing home, convalescent home, Skilled Nursing Unit, care home or rest home provides a specific type of care for its residents. More than two-thirds of the states use the licensure term assisted living. Assisted living comes by many names, such as residential care, board and care, or group homes. Each state licensing agency has its own definition of the term it uses to describe assisted living. Staff is available twenty-four hours a day. Housing arrangements for the future can be a stressful, anxiety-provoking topic for you and your family. A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. 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. A nursing home is normally the highest level of care for older adults outside of a hospital.
