Question

Will a retirement home be the right choice as my need for support increases?

 
Answer

Many retirement communities allow for residents to age in place. If you or your spouse ever require additional care, including temporary respite care after a hospital procedure, you may be able to be treated in your suite or moved to another part of the community for greater care services. Therefore, even if only one person requires extra care while the other is independent, both you and your spouse would live close by in the same community. If you are interested in aging in place services and care, ask a retirement community for their full care options when visiting for a tour.

Question

What is the food like?

 
Answer

Retirement homes have changed a lot and so have their food. Most retirement residences have professionally trained chefs on staff. They cook fresh items and the menus in the dining rooms change daily. Bars and cafes are also very commonplace. At some residences the community gardens supply fresh ingredients to the kitchen.

Question

When is the best time to move into a retirement community?

 
Answer

Anytime. It is best to make sure the timing fits with your needs and plans for the future. It is never too early to research and visit communities and explore your options. Then when the time comes that you want to move or when health reasons make it a necessity, you are ready. It also gives you an opportunity to organize your finances so that you can move into a retirement community when you want.
