In brief: Listen.....

Most people will never be honest or realistic enough about what they can no longer do to make that determination.
If those close to you start pointing out things you can no longer do on your own, listen up, give it real thought. Not being able to drive safely, prepare foods, socialize, sort out medications--accept it and let others help. You'll end up being loved, not one of the old fart pia's.
