What is the difference between independent living and assisted living?
Independent living and assisted living in a senior living community differ primarily in the level of care and support provided to residents. Independent living is designed for residents who are largely self-sufficient and seek an active, maintenance-free lifestyle. In contrast, assisted living is tailored to those who require some assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, medication management, or meal preparation. Assisted living facilities offer 24/7 support, ensuring seniors receive the care they need while maintaining their autonomy. The choice between these options depends on each individual’s level of independence and the level of care required to meet their unique needs in their later years.
