The most important need of the elderly is good and suitable housing.
These homes are specifically designed to meet the needs of the elderly.
However sometimes in these homes the standard of care is very poor. The residents can go a whole month without fresh air in this style of living.
On the other hand if the standard of care is high and the people are looked after well, and are well fed and have proper exercise then life expectancy can possibly increase or the elderly have the option to live at home and be cared for by family and close friends.
The down side of this is that special appliances may have to be fitted such as stair lifts, wheelchairs, ramps and sliding doors. These all cost a lot of money.
