Although the terms “assisted living” and “nursing home” are often used interchangeably, there is a big difference between the two types of facilities. Knowing the difference can empower individuals and families to make the best decision possible regarding health status. This state publication, Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities: What's the Difference?, from the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control, provides comparisons of different features of these facilities in areas such as purpose, staffing, types of activities, and living style characteristics. The practical information in this item makes it our choice for the featured state publication for January 2024.

The complete list of January electronic South Carolina state publications is available. The South Carolina Digital State Documents Depository provides electronic access to state agency publications. These publications provide citizens with crucial information about state government, including statistics, reports, and data on a wide variety of topics related to the state.
