Assisted Living: Independence & Care for Your Unique Needs
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.

Things to consider as you choose an assisted living facility
Keep these points in mind as you choose an assisted living facility for your senior loved one:
Does the facility meet provincial standards?
Is it accredited by a reputable body?
What are all the costs?
Do they offer a written service policy?
Do residents seem happy or content, with staff and with the facility?
How many staff members are on hand and what general attitude do they express?
Is the housing modern or well designed for contemporary care needs?
Do they allow pets?
Do residents have a choice of where to eat?
Is the facility clean and well kept?
What recreational programs are available and how well suited are they to your loved one?
Assisted living and your other retirement home options
On a continuum of retirement care, assisted living offers a bit more independence than continued care or traditional nursing homes in Canada. It is also less costly than those options. Assisted living care will cost in the range of $2000 per month in most places in Canada but costs can be much higher for people with high needs. Be wary of scrimping on care costs for your elderly loved ones.
