In brief: Nursing home

There is no minimal age for long term care.
It depends on the condition of the person and whether they need help with their activities of daily living. Most elderly can stay at home with help. If there is dementia or a chronic disease that incapacitates someone, then speak to your doctor or a social worker and look at what your state regulations.
