Article Summary: 

The article highlights the challenges faced by older adults living independently in condo buildings and the responsibilities of condo boards and management to provide assistance. It suggests that older adults may have difficulty in living independently due to mobility issues, confusion, and changes in behavior, leading to a more isolated lifestyle. The article emphasizes that periodic phone calls are not a solution and physical presence is necessary to identify and help with problems. It also mentions that condo boards and management may not be obliged to provide in-suite assistance unless there is a safety concern that affects other residents or condo rules are not being followed. However, the condo community is comprised of people, and some people may require assistance. The article suggests ways in which condo management, residents, and concerned individuals can help older adults in need of assistance, including maintaining a list of emergency contacts, providing non-medical assistance, organizing social activities, and contacting appropriate social service agencies.
