Elderly care, or simply eldercare is the fulfillment of the special needs and requirements that are unique to senior citizens. This broad term encompasses such services as assisted living, adult day care, long term care, nursing homes, hospice care, and home care. Because of the wide variety of elderly care found globally, as well as differentiating cultural perspectives on elderly citizens, the subject cannot be limited to any one practice. For example, many countries in Asia use government-established elderly care quite infrequently, preferring the traditional methods of being cared for by younger generations of family members

I am not very clear what you need or that you are asking. Are you looking for elder care for your Grandmother still? Or is this a school project/question that you need answered?
If it is for your grandmother we cannot give personal recommendations and the services vary greatly from state to state and country to country.
