Lifestyle Options: Independent Living, Assisted Living
Retirement homes offer new and completely unique opportunities to socialize and make new friends. The peers around you are positive-minded people your own age who have come through many of the same experiences and have the same enthusiasms that you have. Moving into a community when it’s your own decision is the best, but if care needs arise, communities can often accommodate those. Some offer a full spectrum of care.
Communities today focus on modernized, accessible buildings, with a focus on creating a lifestyle that’s vibrant, chock full of daily activities that you can take part in at your leisure, surrounded by both care staff and peers who are looking out for you 24/7. The life you live in a contemporary retirement home is infinitely better than living alone. With real estate prices these days, it’s easily affordable for many people. Features that are typical in retirement homes in Nanaimo may include any or all of the following:
The amenities and activities above are often off the radar for many seniors who are used to living alone in the home where they raised a family. This home can feel very comfortable but there comes a time when, as one senior puts it, “It was just time for me to move on.” Why live surrounded by people less than half your age when you can live so much better in a place that’s designed just for you?
So many seniors who move into a retirement community like those in Nanaimo never look back and often wish they had made the change earlier. Think about it!
That’s really just the tip of the iceberg. Many who make the move find their life improved in ways they never imagined. Amelia is one person who moved from out of the area to a community like one of those listed above. She loves her new social life! “Even breakfast,” she says, “can take me an hour or more because there are so many people to talk to.” When she lived alone, “I’d eat in ten minutes and wonder what to do with the rest of the day.” In her new community, she is “with people all day, as often as I want to be. It’s so healthy!” Like Amelia, you’ll very likely find yourself unable to imagine ever wanting to live in your old home that no longer suits you.
