Rest Home Terminology
Rest homes are establishments for people, typically senior citizens, who are unable to live independently. The following list of terms might help you understand the different categories of nursing care and retirement facilities:

Assisted Living Facility: A center that caters to persons who are unable to care for themselves due to cognitive impairment or degenerative illness. These facilities typically have 24-hour nursing assistance that provide general monitoring in order to ensure the residents' well being and safety, and helps the residents with basic needs such as bathing, eating, getting in and out of bed and administration of medications. Assisted living facilities are licensed by the state department of social services and receive periodic inspections. They do not necessarily have medical doctors on hand at all times, but they must be able to access medical centers quickly. Assisted living facilities typically cater to the elderly, but will accommodate anyone who cannot live independently.

Adult Day Care: Services that provide daytime supervision for persons that are unable to look after themselves on their own, but who have people to care for them in the evenings. These services offer recreational activities, physical therapy, meals and supervision.

Retirement Community: Age restricted residential communities that serve people of retirement age or older who are able to live independently but would like to live in a community of their peers. These communities might be apartment complexes, neighborhoods or recreational vehicle parks. These communities do not necessarily provide nursing care, but will provide housekeeping and meal service, as well as community activities.

Hospice: Hospice care, also known as palliative care, is a service that caters to persons with terminal illnesses who want to spend their final months or years of life in relative tranquility. While patients in hospice care might receive medication to relieve the symptoms of their illnesses, there is not medical intervention for curative purposes.

Contact a few different rest homes to get website information, location, cost, services, and company background. Visit several different types of new and old rest homes and facility centers for respite, such as adult day programs in community centers and hospitals, as well as live-in homes and rehab day care centers. Meet with health care agency consulting professionals through referrals to learn more about referrals and placement. Check out the environment carefully. In your tours of various rest homes, senior retirement community centers, assisted living facilities, make a checklist of each facility's good points and bad points, affordable rates and prices, health-care insurance and government-assisted coverage, professional background, eligibility, programs available, features, activities, personal and medical care, recreation areas, classes, meals, games, transportation, lifestyle assistance services, therapeutic programs, and atmosphere. Also, take a close look at other senior and elderly residents or day patients. Do they appear happy and well cared for? Are the staff members genuinely friendly, caring, skilled, professional care givers and hospice nurses? Do they have the necessary expertise and qualifications for the long term? Once you answer these questions, you'll be better able to narrow down your choice for a proper rest home, retirement home, nursing home, or assisted senior living facility, where your loved one will feel at peace. Be sure to choose a rest home agency or assisted living facility that will help in assisting the patient through the proper health programs, activities, and personal care regimes. Inquire if the center or home is non-profit and handicap accessible, and whether it is part of a local, national or international entity. As caregiver, check out a few different rest homes and consulting agency professionals before committing, to get an idea of assistance programs, therapy programs, and activities for the aging.
