Compare the costs of living in an assisted living community with the costs of living in your home. Then, ask yourself –
1. Are the costs substantially different?
2. Is it worth the extra cost to be assured a safe environment to avoid accidents that could affect my quality of life?
3. Does home ownership really define my independence or can I improve my independence without home worries?
