About Aurora Retirement Homes

Aurora retirement homes are known to organize trips to local performances, malls, parks, and attractions. The senior care in Aurora is very highly regarded and the city appeals to retirees who want to be close to Toronto but either need a more affordable retirement option or dislike the big city attitude. Retirement homes in Aurora offer a variety of senior care services in terms of both medicine and hospitality.

The Aurora real estate market is very appealing for retirees and working people alike, given Aurora’s compromise between rural and urban living and relatively affordable prices. Aurora real estate which includes Aurora retirement homes, is generally considered a smart investment. More so for retirees as living in an Aurora retirement home typically means you would enjoy the benefits of living in an up and coming, beautiful city, and would have the option to visit Toronto or travel further into cottage country but would not be forced to do so as part of a daily commute to work.

There are various types of care services and residential homes available for senior citizens, depending on their health and age. Some of the existing options are:

  • Assisted Living
  • Independent Living

Aurora Real Estate

Aurora real estate is generally considered a smart buy regardless of how close you are to retirement. It is a rare area where the combination of climate and architecture allow for homes to serve as either a primary or cottage residence. Aurora retirement homes are second to none but Aurora real estate could be a major part of long term retirement planning. It is not uncommon for independent seniors to relocate to a smaller home at the beginning of their retirement or near the end of their working lives. Aurora real estate provides the scenic and relaxed atmosphere many look for in an early stage retirement property, with the added bonus of it being a wise investment that can later be used to purchase a room in an Aurora retirement home.  


Independent Retirement Living in Aurora

There are many independent living options for seniors in and around the city of Aurora.  In this case independent living is a broad term for seniors that live in homes either specifically designed to help them maintain their independence. It can also include Aurora seniors who live in their original residences and receive assistance with household or personal tasks from Aurora community organizations or senior care charities.   The goal of independent living in Aurora and throughout the eldercare community is to provide the minimal amount of intervention necessary for seniors to maintain their agency while receiving the care they need.

Independent living in Aurora can be divided into two categories, Aurora home care and Aurora senior homes. Home care in Aurora includes any services where seniors remain in their original residence while receiving some kind of additional support.  Examples of Aurora home care include grocery delivery and meal preparation services, scheduled visits from therapeutic nursing staff, and transportation in vehicles designed for senior’s comfort. A common misconception is that senior care is only possible by moving into a retirement home.  Though Aurora real estate is appealing, there are plenty of senior care options in the city that do not involve moving as well as different interpretations of residential senior living.

Retirement communities are another independent living option in Aurora. These forms of Aurora real estate range in style but generally offer amenities and a community atmosphere catered to people 55 and older. Aurora is home to plenty of affordable retirement communities. These places are luxurious and provide for their guest’s every need, without forcing them to out of retirement in order to keep living there. Some Aurora retirement communities will have a nursing staff for emergencies and therapeutic or palliative treatments, though their primary focus is more hospitality than medical. Aurora retirement communities’ closest analogy is an all inclusive hotel. The senior’s communities in Aurora provide an atmosphere that encourages guests to relax and enjoy their retirement while they are healthy enough to enjoy independent living.

Assisted Retirement Living in Aurora

Assisted living is the next step in senior care. It occurs when seniors require more constant help with everyday tasks to the point that they can no longer be considered to be living independently. Assisted living in Aurora generally occurs in Aurora’s retirement homes.  These retirement residences integrate consistent medical care into their daily routines. This way Aurora seniors are able to enjoy the retirement home’s luxurious amenities in an environment conducive to their needs, knowing they will receive more than adequate care. Aurora retirement homes generally have a doctor onsite, fill patient’s perceptions for them, and offer therapeutic treatments like spas and chiropractors. This is in addition to more hospitality based concerns like nutritious restaurant quality meals, age and health appropriate fitness activities, and social events such as movie nights or trips to senior friendly events in Aurora. Aura retirement homes offer a wide continuum of care and financing options. Generally the retirement homes in the area are affordable compared to bigger cities and offer residential care services ranging from standard senior care to more advanced Alzheimer’s treatment.
