The decision to move out of your home and into a retirement home is not an easy one. In fact most people will tell you it is the most difficult move they will ever make. So how can you be sure that you are making the right decision?
Some questions to consider before making your decision.
- Am I safe in my home?
- Am I eating properly having 3 healthy meals a day and snacks?
- Can I manage with the day to day of keeping my home?
- Are my children or family worried about me?
- Do I get out with people and socialize (other than family)?
- Could I be more active?
- Do I have someone to talk to who understands my concerns, needs and worries?
- Would I like to spend time with those with similar interests?
- Could I use some assistance looking after my medications?
- Do I have difficulty getting to see my family doctor?
- Would I like to try to maintain or gain good health in a positive environment?
If you are answering yes to many or most of these questions than you have a decision to make. Our goal is to assist you in maintaining your optimal health for as long as possible.
A Retirement home is not a Nursing home but a community full of seniors who more or less live without the everyday burdens of cooking, cleaning and worrying about those maintenance issues, property taxes and issues pertaining to maintaining a home. They find camaraderie, friendship, companionship and strength in having people around them that genuinely care for their best interests and who share similar concerns and interests. Our seniors hope to avoid going to a Nursing home and are living a full and active lifestyle while always having health professionals available to them for consultation, assessments and care. You are free to come and go as you please and we welcome your guests and family members for meals and even over night stays. We have a special suite set up so that they may come to be with you.
Parking is included in the cost of your rent and even if you don’t drive, all the amenities are within a 3 to 5 minute walk. Go on outings to the malls, dinners out, trips to botanical gardens and so much more.
Our healthcare team have worked to maintain a great relationship with nearly every local doctor and can get quick access often without you having to go for a visit. With such a full activity calendar available you will find it difficult to say that you're bored. Join our resident council and have your ideas heard. Make a difference to others or just come to enjoy life in a healthy way.
