For an older adult, the choice between assisted living and independent living usually depends on how well an individual can manage daily activities without extra assistance. Examples of daily activities include, but are not limited to: preparing meals, personal hygiene, managing medications, completing household chores, driving/coordinating transportation, and maintaining personal finances.Someone who has difficulty with any of these daily activities that enable people to live independently may want to consider the maintenance-free lifestyle of an assisted living community.
