Description

A Retirement home is a multi-residence home for elderly persons who do not need permanent care. Names and definitions vary; in some places in the English speaking world this may be called an old people's home, a retirement village, or a retirement community. The distinction between this and a nursing home is primarily that a nursing home implies constantly-available (medical) care and a retirement home does not.

How to tag?

Set a node node at the center of the feature or draw an area area along its outline. Add the tag amenity=retirement_home. If there are outdoor spaces as well, use the tag on the site polygon (draw the perimeter of the retirement home grounds).

Alternatives

See amenity=social_facility for an alternative tagging scheme, which allows a finer distinction of the type of the facility. Use social_facility=assisted_living and the target group social_facility:for=senior.
