Registered Nursing Home Association

Different Types

The majority of nursing homes look after older people whose state of health necessitates round the clock nursing care in a residential setting.

Some homes also care for:

  • the younger physically disabled;
  • people with mental health problems; and
  • people with a learning disability.

Nursing homes also vary in size and other characteristics. Many have less than 30 beds. The average is around 33 beds. A few may have 100 beds or more. Some are managed by the people who own them. Some belong to larger groups of homes (sometimes known as the corporates).

If you are looking for a nursing home, you are best advised to shop around and find the one which suits your needs and preferences.
