How is a Care Home different from a Nursing Home or an Old Age Home?
The Care Home is a care-oriented service for senior citizens. It specializes on geriatric care and enrolls limited number of residents for full attention and home-like care.

It has a limited aspect of the actual medical treatment unlike a nursing home where treatment is the key. It emphasizes more on assistance in activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, toilet and changing clothes, as well as recreational activities for the particular age group. While old age home is just a shelter for old people where mainly only lodging and food is looked after.
