Today's retirement homes offer seniors a variety of options. Some take the form of an apartment or condominium complex, while others feature bungalows and cottage-style residences. Catering exclusively to the 55+ crowd, Retirement Homes are an ideal option for seniors who are relatively independent and do not require specialized care – although Home Care is often available. Offering a wide selection of amenities and services, these carefree communities allow residents to focus the leisure and luxury of an all-inclusive retirement lifestyle.
Retirement homes are specifically designed to meet the social, recreational and personal needs of seniors just like you. From fitness to dining, trained on-site staff ensure that you'll receive the care and attention you need. Weekly housekeeping and laundry service are provided for all residents. Each facility hosts its own on-site chef, who prepares delicious and fresh meals each day. Many retirement homes also offer an impressive variety of additional resources – including libraries, games rooms, arts and crafts studios, wellness and fitness centres, theatres, gardens, salons, and even restaurants.
Pursue your interests and hobbies in a community of healthy, happy seniors who share the same tastes as you do. Social events, classes, programs, and fun excursions are available year-round. There's also in-house programs for those seeking opportunities to engage in community outreach, volunteer work, and event organization. All activities are voluntary, and residents are entirely free to do as they please.
