"What would a "retirement home" be called if I look in the yellow pages?"

Try nursing home.

There are several levels of care and strict rules. Generally in the lowest level, the patient must be able to help herself to an exit in case of a fire alarm. If she can't do that, then she gets a higher level of care with more staffing (at higher cost) to provide that assistance.

These are very much like hospitals usually with group meals served in a common area for those who are able. They also usually have activities and sometimes sightseeing trips for their residents.
