A nursing home is typically for patients recovering from a hospital stay, short term, or for individuals with more complex health conditions requiring long-term care and monitoring. These patients need the help of professionals trained in nursing care.
An assisted living home is for residents who need assistance with the activities of daily living, in a home-like setting, from trained (non-medical) caregivers. It is also an excellent option for patients transitioning out of post-hospital nursing homes.
