Assisted living communities range from stand-alone residences in some cases, to being one level of care offered within a larger residence or retirement village. On the other hand, longterm care is required for seniors who need the availability of 24-hour care and supervision.

What is the Difference Between Assisted Living and Nursing Homes:

Residents in a nursing home require around the clock care and monitoring. Residents in an assisted living community usually have their own apartment or suite.
