This article discusses moving out of a variety of types of housing where help or services are provided as part of the housing.

Many people live in one of these at some point. You might stay in one for a short time while recovering, or live there for a long time. Whether to live in one and for how long depends on your needs and desires. Living in one may be the best choice for you at a particular time. But there are also many options to get the care and services you need in a variety of places, including in your own home.
