For example, if you have difficulty with household chores or just want to move to a vibrant new community without leaving yours.

Making the right choice

The choice to move to retirement living is yours to make. Once made, we can guide you through the process. Retirement living is vastly more enjoyable when you belong to a welcoming community. You don’t have to be stuck at home, trying to keep up with everyday chores. Retirement living should move you forward and should be a welcome change. Transitions are never easy, but choices should be, and that’s what retirement living at Aspira provides.

Finding the right retirement residence

Everyone has different needs, and it might take time to find the residence that’s right for you. You deserve to live in a community that offers both “me time” and “social time,” as well as an array of fun activities that provide structure and enjoyment. You deserve to find a residence that feels like home.

What is a retirement residence?

Retirement residences serve somewhat independent or entirely independent retirees and are very similar to condominiums with additional amenities and services. Residences may offer independent living, assisted living, respite stays, and memory care. Our residences keep loved ones safe while meeting their individual care needs. Services and amenities in retirement may vary by residence. Residences include meals, fitness and recreation programming, light housekeeping, and usually laundry services in their monthly fee. Most residences have a small library to borrow books and a restaurant or café to enjoy complimentary refreshments and snacks. Some may have pools, landscaped gardens, walking trails, or ice cream parlours.
