Note 2. C = Community: Home- and community-based settings are settings either in a housing unit or in a facility which provides residents with autonomy and control over their living and service arrangements. I = Institution: Residential settings in units that are neither self-contained nor self-sufficient are considered institutions and units in such settings are often shared by nonrelated residents (including settings like nursing homes and convalescent or rest homes).
