A nursing home is not the same as an assisted living facility. Residents of assisted living facilities need 'assistance' to live at the facility, such as administration of medications, help with getting dressed, meals served, etc. Nursing home residents need around-the-clock care and tend to be more dependent than the typical assisted living resident.
