I agree also with John's statement about the differences between a
nursing_home and a group_home. A nursing_home provides full service and
care for people who cannot take care of themselves.

To my way of thinking, a group_home would include places we call a
halfway_house, a place where folks can live when they are undergoing drug
addiction treatment and might include what we in the U.S. call
assisted_living but I'm not sure if these categories overlap too much or
not at all. There is a social_facility=assisted_living tag already having
almost 10K uses.
