Assisted vs. Independent Living, North Bend, Washington

When a loved one is aging, it’s crucial to ensure they’re getting the right care. However, it may be tough to decide between assisted and independent living. Each offers varying benefits, so which should you choose? Here’s a simple guide for each option.

Independent Living

independent livingIndependent living is often selected for seniors who can mostly care for themselves but need some occasional help from a caregiver. Communities that provide this service often offer various dining options as well as activities and limited medical care. They may even provide housekeeping services, such as cleaning and laundry. The benefits of this option include allowing seniors to retain a sense of self while giving them convenient access to several services.

Assisted Living

Assisted living is particularly useful for elders who need help taking care of daily tasks, such as bathing and getting dressed. Caregivers can provide consistent support that will help elders maintain an independent lifestyle. In such a community, elders will get meals, transportation, and housekeeping services. This is highly beneficial to seniors who can no longer live alone but are not quite ready for the intensive care a nursing home provides.


Red Oak Residence, based in North Bend, WA, offers both assisted and independent living services for area seniors. They provide various options that elders can custom-tailor to their needs, whether they can live alone with minimal help or require more hands-on assistance. In addition to living quarters ranging from a studio to two-bedroom apartment, they provide dining rooms, libraries, and beauty salons. They will work with your beloved senior to select the right option for them. For additional information, visit their website, or call a team member at (425) 888-7108 today.
