Assisted living commonly refers to having nursing staff on hand within the retirement living premises to help retirees.
Their responsibilities often include cooking meals, washing, cleaning and after hours care. Independent retirement living in villages and homes do not offer nursing staff but rather administrative services.
Retirees should consider assisted living when:
You’re having difficulty managing daily routines such as cooking, housework and moving
You’ve received medical advice concerning your health
Your partner requires increased supervision that you cannot provide.
