Toronto Seniors Living Options
Wednesday Apr 26th, 2017
There are many different types of senior living options available today. Each offers a different lifestyle and level of care. Below is a brief description of some of your options
INDEPENDENT RETIREMENT LIVING
There are many intimate and luxurious retirement residences. Independent Retirement Living communities are ideal for seniors capable of living alone and for those who do not require specialized care (though Home Care is available for those who may need extra assistance). The Resort Inspired Retirement community feature private apartments, live-in managers, three meals daily, local transportation, housekeeping, and regularly scheduled social activities to help ensure your retirement years are filled with wellness & vitality.
Assisted living offers seniors the best of both worlds: the care required to meet your unique needs and the independence you strive to keep. If you or a loved one needs help with some daily activities like meal preparation, shopping and medication, but doesn't need full time care then an assisted living retirement home may be the ideal senior living option for you.
Assisted living can help residents of all ages who face challenges with memory, mobility or chronic illness. These types of retirement homes assist residents with housekeeping, cooking, mobility and personal hygiene, while also ensuring that the resident's independence is kept intact and health needs are met.
CONTINUING CARE RETIREMENT COMMUNITIES(CCRC)
Part independent living, part assisted living and part skilled nursing home, and CCRCs offer a tiered approach to the aging process, accommodating residents, and changing needs. Upon entering, healthy adults can reside independently.
When assistance with everyday activities becomes necessary, they can move into assisted living or nursing care facilities. These communities give senior adults the option to live in one location, with much of their future care already figured out.
