Abstract
Although the terms “assisted living” and “nursing home” are often used interchangeably, there is a big difference between the two types of facilities. Knowing the difference can empower individuals and families to make the best decision possible regarding health status. In South Carolina, assisted living facilities are also known as Community Residential Care Facilities (CRCFs).
