Pros and cons of living in continuing care

So what are the cons? The cost of moving into a retirement home too early is always a risk for people. But note that care homes seem more expensive than staying at home: monthly fees cover everything you will ever need, from the roof overhead, to food, to all your monthly bills and more. You also remove the need for a vehicle and gas. Many people are surprised that they can afford it just fine.

Questions to consider when it comes to continuing care communities

There are many considerations to think about as you tour retirement homes near you. You should begin with a copy of the retirement home checklist as you tour communities. Beyond that, the following is a list of questions to ask of continuing care communities, including things to consider for yourself, and things to directly ask representatives of the community:

Variations in continuing care

A number of Hamilton health care services offer complex continuing care. This is something different entirely, but has some similarities to continuing care retirement homes. In fact, some progressive-minded senior care developments in Hamilton are adopting a complex continuing care model, where seniors can get rehabilitation for health care issues, and they can get convalescent care and care for a variety of ailments is covered under the same roof. This approach to seniors' care is cutting edge perhaps (but expect to see more of it in the future). Continuing care homes like those listed above anticipate this change, and may be more adaptable to switch to complex continuing care, should there be an increased demand for this.
