What is the difference between assisted living retirement homes and independent retirement living?

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.
