Finding the Right Fit
Determining a person’s needs before considering a move can ease the stress of a move for you and for your loved one. At first glance, it can be difficult to decide between independent and assisted living, but there are some important considerations for either senior living option.
For an older adult, key factors that influence this decision about the best type of housing are based on how well they can go about daily activities. This includes transportation, meal preparation, medication management, personal hygiene, house work and managing personal finances.
Asking some questions can help you assess:
- Am I/Is my loved one able to keep the house clean without help?
- Am I/Is my loved one able to maintain a medication schedule?
- Am I/Is my loved one able to prepare meals easily and without issue?
- Am I/Is my loved one prone to falls or accidents?
- Can I/my loved one transport themselves safely around town?
Independent living is for adults who like the features of a well-established community while maintaining their privacy and independence. In a community like Golden West, this means that things like onsite meal options, security and planned social activities are provided to residents to support continued independence.

Assisted living is for older adults who need some support and assistance but not total care.
