A nursing home provides around the clock medical based care for patients. Some nursing homes offer temporary stays for things like physical rehabilitation for those who may have fallen or otherwise injured themselves and need help in getting back on their feet. Assisted living in San Antonio provides around the clock care as well, but in more of a non-medical setting. Those who live in assisted living facilities do not typically require constant medical care.
