I've been trying to figure out what that acronym stands for...

The acronym stands for centre d’hébergement de soins de longue durée. You could translate it as residential and long-term care centre.

LOL... Why?! Why give it a complicated name... Call it a 'Retirement Home' like they used to!

They probably keep changing the name of it because they know seniors don't actually want to be sent there. :|
Fight the Good Fight
(Listen with lyrics here!)
Make it worth the price we pay!
All your life you've been waiting for your chance,
Pray you'll fit into the Plan.
But you're the master of your own destiny,
So give and take the best that you can!

Because it's not a retirement home, it's for anyone who cannot live independently, who needs long term care and constant health care services. While most of the people there are the elderly, it is not the case for everybody. And the name was never changed; we do have actual retirement homes which we call résidences pour personnes autonomes or litterally homes for autonomous persons. There are also two other types of homes for people with only small cognitive issues.
