This guide covers premises where the main use is the provision of residential care (where the primary purpose is to provide personal and/or nursing care, not healthcare treatment) and typical residential care premises might provide care for the elderly or infirm, children and young persons, people with special needs, and people with addictions). It may also be suitable for individual residential care premises that are part of other multi-use complexes.
