Care home services without nursing (CHS)
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.

Examples of services that fit under this category:

Residential home
Rest home
Convalescent home
Respite care
Mental health crisis house
Therapeutic communities.
