A "nursing home" is a special place where people who can't take care of themselves live. In a nursing home, there are employees who may do some of these services:
- give you medicine
- help you stand up or get into a wheelchair to move around
- bring you meals
- help you if you fall down and hurt yourself
- help to dress or bathe you
Most commonly, very old people live in nursing homes. Sometimes people with extreme disabilities also need to live in a nursing home.
