Nursing Home

A residential center for persons who are unable to accomplish some or all activities for daily living. Most residents of nursing homes are elderly or disabled. Many residents in the United States receive government health care aid such as Medicare or Medicaid. Nursing homes are heavily regulated because of their sensitive nature, especially if they accept government money.
