In the Comfort Life Spotlight

Families beginning the search for assisted living are well-advised to begin considering options the earlier the better. It's important to know when, for sure, you should be actively seeking assisted living senior care. In essence, you will need to start looking when your loved one is not taking care of personal matters. You can take up personal caregiving or hire personal home care, but in many cases there comes a time when you need to move forward into an environment that will provide the safety and care that you need (and so much more).

When to start searching for assisted living

Here are some things to look for and be concerned about:

Assisted living costs in Hamilton and area: a survey

Costs are one of the main concerns for families searching for senior care. Below, we provide a brief survey of fees charged by some area retirement homes listed here. 


Starting cost/mo

What's included

Burlington West


Basic dining, housekeeping, daily tidy. Support for many medical conditions including cancer and strokes. Several types of extended assistance (e.g. bathing and dressing) are included, but some (e.g. incontinence care) are not.

Hamilton Mountain


Basic dining, housekeeping, daily tidy. Support for many medical conditions including cancer and strokes. Several types of assistance (bathing and dressing) are included.



Meals, daily tidy, feeding, bathing, dressing, transfer and other ADLs

*36 kilometers outside of Hamilton proper, listed here for comparison purposes, to show you money-saving options not far outside of Hamilton.

The data above is for informational purposes. You will need to discuss fees with each of the communities to confirm the final monthly costs you will be paying.

And as you see above, expanding your search to places outside of Hamilton can help you find less expensive options. Typically, people want to restrict themselves to options closer to home, so if you live on Hamilton Mountain, you will restrict yourself to options there only. This can be limiting, as there can be wide variations in the quality of care, and you may find that there are assisted living facilities near Hamilton, in Niagara Falls, for example, or Dundas or Ancaster (or further west in Brantford and area) that is better suited to your needs or those of your loved one.
