  • Assisted Living and Nursing Homes: Health Information for Older People

Sometimes, with the help of a caregiver, an older person can continue to live at home. But you may find that an assisted-living facility or nursing home is the best fit.

Nursing homes offer a higher level of care and are best for patients who need regular nursing attention and medical care. Content Detail
