What is the difference between assisted living and a nursing home?
Also called skilled nursing, a nursing home is a better option for seniors who need considerable, 24/7 daily care, or memory issues. Assisted living communities are best for those who are largely self-sufficient, active, and are looking to simplify their lifestyle, with a little extra help.
What is the difference between assisted living and independent living?
Seniors living in independent living communities typically need very little, if any, daily assistance. They live their life taking care of the far majority of their daily tasks including cooking, bathing, cleaning, getting around, taking their medications, etc. Those in assisted living are largely self-sufficient, but do need some daily assistance for the tasks above. Both should expect full privacy on a daily basis.
