What's the difference between assisted care living and elderly living community?
We have an Uncle who has health issues but is still active. The family is unable to attend to him constantly and is thinking of moving him into a different living arrangement.
First, there is no legal definition of "assisted living" anywhere in the USA. It is a marketing term. Nursing homes are licensed by the state and certified to receive Medicare for skilled services after you have been in a nursing home, thus nursing homes are legally defined under the laws of your state.
