A typical “nursing home” is defined as a facility that focused on seniors who have chronic illnesses or other circumstances which would require intensive medical support from medical professionals. Nursing homes are different from “Assisted living” facilities which often have round-the-clock care and trained medical staff, but are more for seniors who may simply need support for certain daily activities such as bathing or cooking, or even some greater needs based on mobility or other issues. If assisted living is more the need of your loved one, you can find more information here on Renton assisted living.
