Three Senior Living Options for a High-quality, Fulfilling Life
King'sBridge offers a variety of senior living options, including assisted living, independent living, and memory care. Each living option provides its own benefits for older adults.
Table of Contents
Assisted living is for older adults who need a hand with several ordinary daily activities, but who can otherwise live independently. Our senior living communities are staffed with caring professionals who can provide assistance, if needed, with the activities of daily living (ADLs), such as:
- Preparing food and eating
- Moving from the bed to a chair or walking across the room
Our assisted living communities also offers activities such as game rooms, book clubs, social events, day trips to lunch or ice cream. They also attend our in-house concerts, movie nights, exercise programs, and plays.
Independent living primarily focuses on the social needs of the residents, who can live independently but who may occasionally enjoy a little assistance with ADLs. Independent living communities offer dining, exercise and entertainment, such as on-campus activities and bus trips to local attractions and events.
If they need assistance, there are resident contracts with a home health company to provide these types of services as needed. At King'sBridge, we provide them an emergency alert pendant that they can push for assistance.
Memory care is a safe, structured environment with established routines for adults living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. Like the staff at assisted living communities, memory care professionals provide nutritious meals and personal care, but also offer specialized care that helps people with memory issues lead full and enriching lives.

What is the difference between Independent Living and Assisted Living?
Independent living focuses on the social needs of their residents, while assisted living provides a combination of services that focus on activities of daily living and social interaction. Read more on the difference between independent and assisted living here.
What are the signs that it is time to move to assisted living?
Moving to an assisted living community is a highly personal choice, so the signs may differ from person to person. The most common signs include:
- Declining of medical conditions
- One or more recent falls
- Household accidents, poor housekeeping
- Increasing frailty
- Trouble with one or more activities of daily living
- Difficulty managing finances or everyday activities
When is it time to move to a memory care community?
The signs may be different for each individual with a memory issue, but some of the most common signs include:
- Wandering, especially after dusk
- Unintended weight loss for either the adult with memory issues or for the caregiver
- Caregiver stress that interferes with everyday life
- Decreased quality of life for the individual with memory problems or for the caregiver
What should we expect from Memory Care?
When you or a loved one moves to memory care, you can expect memory-enhancing activities and therapies in a secure environment. Memory care also includes nutritious meals and assistance with eating, housekeeping, and help activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and toileting. You can also expect help from a staff trained in providing memory care. Read more on what to expect from memory care here.
