Take Comfort: retirement home reviews
Quality is a very big factor in determining the fees you will pay. Consult retirement home reviews to hear how others think they're getting their money's worth out of the cost they are paying.

The cost of senior care varies quite widely depending on a number of factors. You can reduce your costs by looking around, perhaps looking further afield than you immediately think, and perhaps stretch your comfort zone in order to get the best price for you.

There are several factors in play that greatly affect the costs you will pay for any single seniors' care suite:

  • The location of the retirement home
  • The size of the suite
  • The level of care offered
  • The detailed care you require (feeding, bathing, etc.). These are often provided on a per-service fee

Before you move into any retirement home, find out about the potential of rate increases, or any other costs that may be hidden.

The costs of aging at home

How can we afford it?

For anyone moving into a retirement home, you need to know the full costs associated with each home or residence before you move in and you need to be aware of potential changes to those costs such as lease or rental increases or changes to your income or investments.

Paying for a retirement home may be easier than you think when you consider that the monthly rate covers many living expenses including everything from home repairs to property taxes to heat and hydro. If you are incurring expenses for in-home care, or children are taking time off work to care for an elderly loved one, these add to the "hidden costs" of living at home, as well. 

Regular benefits for seniors include Old Age Security (OAS) and Canada Pension Plan (CPP) benefits, but there may be many more sources of income available to you. Depending on who you are and what you have done with money, this can include a workplace pension, investments, rental income, etc. We provide an overview of how people typically fund seniors care, and in many cases, family members may pitch in to cover the costs of caring for an elderly loved one.
