What is the difference between a nursing home and an ALF (Adult Living Facility)?
A: The difference between a nursing home and an adult living facility (or ALF) is the level of care your loved one will receive. Typically, ALFs provide much less care and supervision than do nursing homes. They are licensed differently and the services that they provide are different and are regulated by both Florida and Federal Law and Regulations.
