When is Assisted Living the Right Solution For Elder Care?

My neighbor, Henry, lived in his little bungalow for nearly 50 years. He and his wife had raised a son in that home. Eventually, the grown son moved across the country. Henry’s wife died. Henry’s son wanted him to move to a place where he’d have company and help when he needed it. A place where he’d be safe and have friends.  Henry would have none of it.
