Know your options
There are differences between retirement living and long term care. We'd like to help you understand them.
Retirement living may be right for you if you are considering a lifestyle change to a more active and social environment, of if you are looking for a little support or assistance with housekeeping or personal care in a safe, secure environment. From personal services and unique amenities to healthy meal plans, find out what we have to offer.
Retirement living is all about supporting people in living their lives to the fullest. After all, the retirement years are meant to be fun, fulfilling and memorable; it’s also a time filled with purpose and meaning. In our retirement homes, celebrating life, engaging in an active lifestyle, and enjoying social engagements with friends all help make every day special for residents like you. At the same time, we know that it’s also a time of life when you may need a little extra support. Much like an apartment or condo, different suites types – such as one-bedroom or two-bedroom suites, some with an in-suite kitchen or kitchenette, as well as studio suites – are available, depending on which retirement home you prefer.
Long term care homes, sometimes referred to as nursing homes, offer a safe, secure and specialized care environment. Long term care facilities welcome people who can no longer live independently because of the high level of care or supervision they require and/or because they need significant support with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing or eating.
That’s why our senior living communities offer a range of lifestyle options to suit your needs. The terminology varies slightly between provinces, but they generally include independent living, independent supportive living, assisted living, memory care, short term stay and respite stay. Whatever your needs are, there is a place perfect for you at one of our retirement residences.
