See amenity=social_facility for a more recent and more common tagging scheme, which allows a finer distinction of the type of the facility, e.g. social_facility=nursing_home, and the target groups (senior, disabled, mental_health, etc.) e.g. social_facility:for=senior.

A home for disabled or elderly persons who need permanent care. Names vary; in some places in the English-speaking world this sort of facility might be referred to as "assisted living" [more permanent, with nursing staff], "care homes with nursing", "rest home", or many other variations. The distinction is that constant nursing care is available and in case of a nursing home, constantly (24/7) required.
