Would you name facilities or organizations where orphans, elderly people, very young children are cared for? For example, a senior center, a nursing home, etc.

Would you let me know the websites where we can find many kinds of such organizations and their definitions? Thank you for your help.

    Homes for orphans are called orphanages or children's homes. Here are a few:

    http://www.calfarley.org/Pages/default.aspx

    http://conchokids.org/

    Here's a full explanation and a much larger list of countries and homes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orphanages

    Elderly people who don't live in their own homes can choose to live in nursing homes, retirement homes, or assisted living facilities: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assisted_living#Assisted_living_in_the_United_States

    There are also many options for elderly people who cannot take care of themselves any more, whether they live with other family members or not. Senior centers often have "day care" programs and transportation. Sometimes people get help in their homes to care for an elderly person, sometimes full-time (very expensive) or sometimes part-time.

    Be sure to go through the Wikipedia links above and click on the different links in each article to get more specific information.
