What Is The Difference Between A Nursing Home And Assisted Living?

Outside of a hospital, a skilled nursing home is intended to offer the highest level of care. Skilled nursing homes provide 24-hour supervision that also provides meals, activities, and special assistance for conditions such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.

An assisted living facility is for seniors who are able to manage taking care of themselves without medical assistance. These residents do not require round the clock medical care. Aside from offering support in dispersing medication to residents, they also assist in bathing, cleaning, toileting, and eating.

Although both types of senior care centers are intended to offer quality care, care givers have been known to abuse innocent residents and patients within nursing homes and assisted living centers.
