In senior independent living, it’s all about having the freedom to choose how each day unfolds, in an environment designed for, and focused on, you and your needs.
Independent living in Canada is offered in retirement homes that each look and feel a bit different, and that offer a range of amenities and services. The key is finding the right one for you. Our retirement homes have a variety of suites (such as one-bedroom or two-bedroom suites, some with an in-suite kitchen, as well as studios), so you can choose what suits you best. Ready to have someone else do the cooking? Food and nutrition are a big part of life, so relax and enjoy the chef-inspired meals in our dining rooms. Had enough of housekeeping? We’re here to help with that, too.
The wide range of recreational, cultural and social events and activities at each independent living home means there is something for everyone – and you have the freedom to decide what you’d like to do each day. Want to get or stay fit? Join an exercise class. Want to hone your artistic side? Share your creativity at art class. Want to visit the theatre? Join like-minded people from your residence and enjoy the show together. And don’t forget about your furry companions – our retirement residences welcome pets, and some of our newer homes even feature dog runs and dog wash stations!
Another great benefit to independent living is access to care should you need it. There are a variety of terms used to describe the care that is offered or accessible to residents in retirement communities: assisted living, independent supportive living, memory care and dementia care. Bottom line is that by choosing to live in a retirement residence, if you ever need care – whether it’s nursing care, physician services, nutritionist support or other healthcare services – we can help.
