English to Italian translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Health Care / Nursing homes
English term or phrase:nursing home
This was already asked once back in 2005, but I want to be sure of the right phrase. Come si dice *nursing home* ... a place where a person who is too ill to take care of him/herself is placed? This could be someone recovering from surgery, a very old person, or someone with Alzheimer's, who isn't suffering from an acute illness and doesn't need hospital treatment, but needs ongoing assistance and attention by professional staff. 'Casa di cura' has been suggested before, and I'm also wondering about 'ospizio' and 'residenza protetta.' Grazie mille.
