A: Independent Senior Living and Assisted Living are different on many levels. Assisted Living is perfect for people who require help with daily activities in their homes. Even if these people could still live independently at an assisted living facility, they need assistance with various tasks. The support services go from housekeeping to meal cooking, cleaning, and maintenance of the home. Seniors in Assisted Living may need help with medications and bathing as well. Some of them may require memory care.
People who don't require help with their daily activities will find comfort in independent senior living communities. Suppose your senior can still cook meals for himself, use the restroom on his own and get around without support. In that case, the independent senior living facility would be the most appropriate choice. More often than not, independent senior living communities also have amenities with medical care, residential dining services, and entertainment. Many independent senior living communities will help the residents with housekeeping or meals if need be.
