Active Adult Living Nova Scotia
Enjoy Canada's most popular retirement in the Maritimes
Nova Scotia's active adult living communities offer one of Canada’s most popular styles of living for individuals 55 or older. Some common advantages of active adult living homes can include:
- Active adult living communities provide numerous opportunities to exercise and stay in shape. Most homes have fitness and wellness centers, as well as sports facilities (such as shuffleboard, golf courses, swimming pools, squash courts, and tennis courts).
- Social interaction is a key aspect of active adult living. You will live in a community with like-minded individuals and friendly staff. Health professionals agree that being social is a great way to keep your mind active and avoid Alzheimer’s disease and other problems related to aging.
- Active adult living communities eliminate a lot of the stress you may have in your own home. The amenities of your active adult residence will give you time to relax and enjoy life.
Retirement Living in New Brunswick
New Brunswick is known for its natural wonders. The Bay of Fundy, as well as numerous rivers, beaches, and mountains make this province one of the most picturesque places in Canada. Seniors in New Brunswick also love its oceanic climate which ensures that seasons are never harsh. Summer is warm, but not very hot, while winter is cool, yet not frigid.
The New Brunswick Department of Seniors is responsible for improving the welfare of the province’s retirees. The Department lists its mandate as "committed to ensuring the inclusion, well-being, and independence of seniors in Nova Scotia by facilitating the development of policies on aging and programs for seniors across government and through the provision and coordination of strategic planning, support, services, programs and information. This is achieved through leadership and collaboration with partners."
Prior to choosing an active adult living community, think about some of the following issues:
- Costs: How well can you afford it in the long-term?
- Activities: Will you have enough to do? Do the activities that the home offers interest you?
- Quality of the Community: does the home offer a pleasant environment?
- Size of the Residence: How many people live there? Do you prefer socializing in small environments or in large groups?
- Reputation: Does the home have a good reputation? Is it corporate owned?
