Assisted Living is a wonderful option for many older adults.
Older adults who are frail but not sick and who need some help with daily activities such as housecleaning, meals, dressing, and medication reminders and monitoring, are appropriate for Assisted Living. Geriatric experts estimate that nearly 1/3 of people age 85 and older need some assistance with these types of daily living activities.
Individuals who want peace of mind, who do not want to rely on family for assistance or care, are appropriate for Assisted Living as well.
Many older adults simply want to live independently without the worries of home maintenance, shopping and cooking on a daily basis or just do not wish to live alone any longer. They are also appropriate for Assisted Living.
