  1. If a person suffers from medical issues that could have a negative impact on their lives if they are not monitored, then they would need to have someone live with them to ensure that nothing happens to them. Otherwise, there is no problem, per se, with living alone. If living alone will cause someone to become depressed and to lose their quality of life, then, depending on the exact circumstances, it would be recommended to have them live with someone else.
