What is independent living in Brampton?

Independent living is a great choice for seniors still active and in good health. It's ideal for those who wish to maintain independence in their daily lives, while receiving assistance with household chores like cooking, housekeeping and laundry. Independent living gives seniors the freedom to spend their time as they please, in a community of other seniors with similar interests.

Brampton offers exemplary independent living options. These communities strive to improve the wellbeing and happiness of their residents. Here’s what you can expect:

A warm, welcoming environment

The decision to move into a retirement home can be difficult. It's normal to resist this change. Staff in retirement communities are sensitive and empathetic to these feelings. That is why staff strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for all residents and their families. As one family member puts it: “My mother has been [here] for four years. It was a big change for her…but with the warm welcome and all the help she received, she soon felt at home…[We know she] is in caring hands.”

Some communities allow trial stays, so you can test out the lifestyle, to see if it is the right fit for you. Aside from the warmth of the staff, residents are sure to find friendly company with their neighbours. Retirement homes in Brampton offer daily community activities like exercise programs and bingo.

Great urban location

An advantage to choosing independent living in Brampton is its fantastic urban location. The Bramalea City Centre offers shopping. There are also grocery stores, public libraries and health care facilities. If you want to enjoy time outdoors, there are plenty of parks and green spaces. Communities listed above offer regular excursions and shopping trips. Residents stay engaged in the local community, transported safely, securely, and comfortably.

First-rate care

Independent living communities listed above offer high-quality care. Medical staff like registered nurses and PSWs are often on site. Other medical professionals, like mobility specialists, doctors and dentists visit regularly for appointments with residents. Families can rest assured knowing that their loved ones are cared for, and have access to medical help when needed. Additionally, some communities above offer care up to assisted living and memory care. If your care needs change over time, you don’t have to make another big move to a different facility.

Advocacy and commitment to operational excellence

Communities in Ontario are accredited by The Ontario Retirement Communities Association (ORCA). This means they have met ORCA’s standard for excellence in all areas of operation. This includes provincial regulations and best practices for quality care. For over four decades, ORCA has advocated on behalf of seniors to ensure retirement communities are strong and prosperous. Leaving your loved ones in someone else’s hands can be worrisome. ORCA ensures their retirement homes are a place you can trust.
