Survival skills aren't only determined by imminent life-threatening situations.

Look at how many people give up in the face of relatively mild obstacles. While there are plenty of people who could do what I did with mom for 18 months, there's a significant number who just give up when faced with difficulty. It can viewed as a moral failing, but it could also be just as much a lack of training (mental and physical), knowledge, skills, etc.
