Care home services with nursing (CHN)
A care home is a place where personal care and accommodation are provided together. People may live in the service for short or long periods. For many people, it is their sole place of residence and so it becomes their home, although they do not legally own or rent it. Both the care that people receive and the premises are regulated.

In addition, qualified nursing care is provided, to ensure that the full needs of the person using the service are met.

Examples of services that fit under this category:

Nursing home
Convalescent home with nursing
Respite care with nursing
Mental health crisis house with nursing.
