Is Assisted Living Right for You?

If you’re considering assisted living, you may be wondering if it’s the best choice for you. Assisted living can be a good option if:

  • You no longer want the responsibility of maintaining your home
  • You need help with mobility, feeding yourself, getting dressed or other activities of daily living
  • You have a disability or chronic condition that makes living at home difficult
  • You are in the early stages of Alzheimer’s or have another cognitive impairment that gets worse over time
  • You live alone and family/friends are too far away to help you
  • You’re unable to drive and don’t have access to reliable transportation
  • You’re unable to install necessary modifications, such as a wheelchair ramp or walk-in tub, that would make your home safer to live in
