What is independent living in Hamilton?

Independent living is designed for seniors ready to transition out of a home or condo. Communities offer services like cooking, cleaning, and laundry, to make daily living easier. This leaves more freedom to engage in activities and social outings. Residents in independent living communities are cognitively and physically able to move about on their own.

Here are just a few of the many wonderful things you can expect when transitioning into independent living:

Community atmosphere

Do you miss the good old days, when you knew your neighbour and could stop for a quick chat as you go about your day? Do you love going for a walk in the community, giving passersby a bright smile and “hello!” as you pass? Hamilton independent living retirement homes emulate this community atmosphere. When you enter the building, you're sure to find groups of residents chatting in the common areas. Some may be sharing old memories while others may be facing off in a card game. Still others may be making their way to their weekly coffee chat with an old friend. In independent living, everybody looks out for each other and enjoys each other’s company.

Some retirement homes in Hamilton emulate a true village! Communities boast cafes, a general store, library, and chapel, along a “main street.” Go for a stroll "downtown," just like you would in the good old days. Staff and residents’ radiant smiles are sure to brighten your day.

Resort-like living

We’ve all experienced the end-of-vacation blues. It’s the last day of vacation, you’re enjoying your favourite activity, and think to yourself, “I don’t want to leave!” In independent living, you don’t have to! Many communities in Hamilton have been described as “resort-like living.” The lifestyle is just as luxurious as a 5-star resort! There is first-class dining and fun things to do daily. They offer shopping trips and volunteer opportunities, to exercise programs and movie screenings. There are even indoor pools and spas! In independent living, you can customize your daily schedule to your liking – just as you would on vacation.

Choose your own lifestyle

One of the most common testimonials from residents in independent living communities is their life-satisfaction. For example, one resident said, “what I like most about living [here] is the security and freedom to live your own life.

Independent living communities value flexibility and freedom for residents. Communities offer suites with a full kitchen, so you can decide how often you’d like to cook. Meal plans are often flexible, too. You eat out a couple of times a week, or be treated to first-class dining for every meal! You can also choose to rent a suite with a washer/dryer, or have staff take on that chore for you. In some communities, you can even choose to rent or purchase your unit.
