Victoria's senior population is increasing rapidly. Almost all families today have at least one senior member who needs care services or will need care in the next few years. Retirement homes offer a range of improvements over in-home care and other options families maybe considering. Here, there are recreation programs, social events and many other activities that help seniors remain active and healthy. Retirement residences are unlike publicly run nursing homes that provide round-the-clock care and medical aid. Long term care homes (or nursing homes, as they are still sometimes called) provide the highest level of care. Here, skilled nurses and doctors are available to take care of the medical needs of the elderly.

Victoria's seniors' homes provide excellent care

These homes are usually apartment-style rooms, condominiums or a suite of rooms. Seniors are offered daily services like meals, medication, housekeeping, laundry and recreation activities. The homes listed below are all privately owned and operated.

Several Victoria homes also offer assisted living. Assisted living senior homes provide supervision or assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). Seniors are given help with activities such as bathing, grooming and eating. Additional medical services and registered care providers are available if required. Assisted living is particularly suited to seniors who are comparatively healthy and do not require extended medical attention.

The Victoria homes and communities listed below offer services and amenities including:

  • medical specialty services
  • dining room
  • personal laundry and housekeeping
  • entertainment and in-house games
  • personal care including spas or beauty salons
  • personal attendance including bathing and dressing help, if needed

Activities will vary on a home-by-home basis so please contact each retirement home. That way you will know exactly what services and amenities they offer.
