Also referred to as Independent Living facilities or Retirement Homes, Senior Homes provide an exclusive community for individuals aged 55 and up. Located in proximity to medical resources, shopping, and recreational amenities, seniors enjoy the safety and security of resort-style living at its finest. If you're a senior seeking a stress-free and worry-free retirement, a Seniors Home may prove to be an ideal match.
A Leisurely Lifestyle
Senior Homes comes in several shapes and sizes, but they all share the same priority – to provide their residents with a superior retirement experience. Many Senior Homes may provide their own additional assisted living services or contract with outside staffing companies to provide medication management, dressing, bathing, and other services. Most Senior Homes have their own dedicated recreational centre, and even host on-site chefs – who prepare an ever-changing assortment of nutritious and delicious gourmet dishes. Housekeeping and laundry services are also offered.
Residents have a selection of tasteful and stylish suites to choose from, as well as open access to community gardens, extended grounds, recreational facilities, hair salons, arts & crafts studios, and communal dining areas. Games nights, movie marathons, and organized outings are offered on a voluntary and ongoing basis. There's also a wide variety of classes offered on-site, which focus on topics such as fitness and nutrition. Some facilities also provide specialized services such as pet therapy and personal counselling.
