Independent living facilities in Surrey and area offer basic care and amenities. This includes recreational programs suited to the elderly, as well as communal dining; housekeeping may also be included for residents in this type of care. In some retirement homes, this level of care can be ideal for couples where one partner may have need for more extended care.
Assisted living care in Surrey and elsewhere provide a greater depth of health care, created with the needs of seniors in mind. In this type of care, seniors may spend more time with medical staff that ensures that their health and personal needs are met.

In some cases, senior couples can remain together, although their care needs may be very different.
