What is the difference between independent living and assisted living?
Independent Living can provide scheduled care with a home care company. Assisted Living provides on-demand care. An assisted living in a smaller setting also provides more eyes-on care which can be helpful if a resident is a fall risk or has dementia.
Independent Living becomes a concern if you need assistance toileting or are a fall risk. The staff at the community cannot help you – only the home care company you have hired to help can assist you with any activities of daily living.
