Old people's homes are also commonly referred to as retirement homes, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior communities, or elder care facilities. These terms all refer to places where elderly individuals can receive the help and care they need as they age. Retirement homes usually cater to more independent seniors who may require limited assistance, while nursing homes offer round-the-clock medical care to those with more severe health issues. Assisted living facilities provide support to seniors who need help with daily activities but still value independence. Senior communities offer housing and social activities for active adults, while elder care facilities offer specialized care for seniors with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia.
