Are you a nursing home?

Answer: No. A nursing home is a place that provides skilled medical care for those who are unable to care for themselves.

A nursing home, as mentioned before, is for persons who are unable to care for themselves. Please note, at the moment, we are not yet an assisted-living facility. We offer assisted living services, i.e. Adult Day Care.

What is the Daycare Centre?

The Daycare centre is the department of AHCNECS that facilitates the elderly who live at home, but wants to visit a place where there are other elderly persons with whom they can socialise.
