When is the right time for assisted living?

Learn more: What is assisted living?

The right time to look for assisted living is when you start to see obvious signs that your senior loved one is not giving him or herself proper personal care. Families may consider home care services as the first step, but the time comes when you need to make a move. That time is before a serious crisis arises.  Assisted living is typically focused on providing assistance with tasks of daily living, tasks or activities that seniors are no longer able to help themselves with.

Assistance available in a retirement home

Here's a closer look at some of those tasks and how proper care will improve your life. Getting into assisted living at the right time ensures that your loved one remains healthy and avoids unnecessary problems or crises:

Eating. If your loved one is losing weight, this can be a sign that he or she is neglecting a proper diet. There is a wide variety of reasons for this, but often, seniors eat less because they can't be bothered to cook good meals for themselves. Congregate living encourages healthy eating. Regular, well-cooked meals will improve health and increase strength.

Bathing and dressing. It's typical to think that we require less bathing as we age. However, if someone is avoiding the bath because getting in or out of the tub or shower is too difficult for them, this is could lead to worse problems. The same factors can affect a loved one's ability to dress him or herself. If you have reason to believe that your elder loved one is not taking proper personal care of him or herself, this has several dangers. It can lead to unneeded sores, for example, which can lead to infection. The move into an assisted living facility can be a great relief to both your loved and family.

Toileting and incontinence are perhaps the most delicate personal care issue. Issues in this area are a sure sign that personal senior care is needed. The distinct advantage of a move into a retirement home is that senior care will be available around the clock. The environment is built around providing this kind of delicate care, for seniors who are disinclined to ask for help in this and other personal matters.

Assisted living entails the provision of or round-the-clock availability of personal and medical care in an environment designed with seniors in mind. The brief overview above is just an outline of problems families can have with aging parents.

Costs of Mississauga's assisted living care

The fees you will pay for assisted senior living in Mississauga will vary widely, depending on what care services you actually require and where you choose to live. Here is an overview of fees and prices listed by communities as of 2017-2018:

Starting cost/mo

What's included


Basic dining, housekeeping and medication administration. All other personal care options cost an extra fee per service.


Meals and housekeeping, with all personal care options included except incontinence care (available for an extra fee).


Basic dining, housekeeping, with medication administration and resident reminders.

The above provides a brief survey.  Consult with each community to get a much fuller picture of what costs are covered and all fees associated.

Assisted living is a second level on the care continuum. As such, it is more expensive than independent living, while more complex care options such as memory care or long term care are bound to be more extensive. Families just embarking on the need for dedicated senior care may want to consider continuing care homes in the GTA. Homes like this offer a fuller continuum of care, including assisted living for seniors, like those communities listed above, but extending to more intensive care options.
