Assisted Living: Independence & Care for Your Unique Needs

Assisted living: the best of both worlds

Assisted living retirement offers the best of both worlds: the care required to meet your unique needs and the independence you want 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 community may be the ideal living option for you.

With homes in Stratford and Ottawa, Ontario, All Seniors Care encourages active and vibrant living in a supportive, comfortable and safe environment.

Assisted living can help residents of all ages who face challenges with memory, mobility or chronic illness and is an alternative to home health care. These types of retirement communities (or retirement homes, senior 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.

Do you or your loved one need assisted living?

Assisted living retirement is ideal for residents of all ages who have some limitations in physical and cognitive health. These retirment communities are designed for residents who need on-site assistance with personal care, mobility, medication management and support. Assisted living residents may be young or old and may have problems with memory, incontinence or mobility. Residents of assisted living retirement communities may need help with a number of activities, including:

  • Housekeeping
  • Meal preparation/cooking
  • Getting around the house
  • Getting around town
  • Grooming and other hygiene
  • Bathing and dressing
  • Toileting/diapering
  • Eating


Things to consider as you choose an assisted living retirement community:

  • Does the retirement home meet provincial standards?
  • Is the residence accredited by a reputable body?
  • What are the costs and what services are included in these costs?
  • Do they offer a written service policy?
  • Do residents seem happy or content with staff and with the retirement community facility?
  • How many staff members are on hand and what general attitude do they express?
  • Is the housing modern or well designed for contemporary senior care needs?
  • Do they allow pets? 
  • Do residents have a choice of where to eat?
  • Is the community clean and well kept?
  • What recreational programs are available and how well suited are they to your loved one?
Download our free eBook The Ultimate Retirement Tour Checklist for more advice about what to look for and ask when choosing an assisted living community.

Assisted living and your other retirement home options

On a continuum of retirement care, assisted living offers a bit more independence than traditional long-term care residences in Canada. It is also less costly than other options. Assisted living care costs vary throughout  Canada and also depend on the level of care required on a monthly basis. Costs are higher for people with high needs requiring a higher level of care as part of their assisted living retirement community stay. 

Visit our financial page for more information about the costs of assissted living communities in your province.
