Nursing home care in the United States
In the United States, there are different kinds of residential ""nursing"" facilities (community facilities and institutional facilities) which have in common Medicaid federal funding and approvals through a state health department, no matter which categorical state department (e.g., intellectual disabilities, mental health, health) operates, staffs or oversees the facilities. The newer community versions, small in size rather than the exposed institutions (operated similar to ""group homes"" and even apartments), were developed around 1970s as part of the movement to the community (Racino & Schwartz, 1978). Assisted living came from community living (CL) groups (not from the nursing home industry) who advocated for the separation of facility funding to home and supports in the communities(for information on residential services and reform, see supportive housing and supported living). Board and care homes have never been approved by community planning as intermediate care facilities (ICFs), or even the emblematic group homes, often falling far short at health and community gates. The leading practice in the US is to advocate for community Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) led by groups such as the Consortium of Citizens with Disabilities representing over 200 national disability organizations.
