Senior living in North Vancouver
The wonderful amenities listed above may not be on the radar for some seniors who don’t realize the possibilities. When people remain in the family home they have lived in for a long time, they get used to a routine. Those who are living alone fall into a trap of familiarity, even as their days are filled up with things they really needn’t be doing. Cooking meals for yourself, for example, is a dull task that’s more bothersome than healthy. Meals become simplified to things like soup or reheated meals. You could be eating so much better -- and having much more time for yourself -- in a retirement home.
When people make the move, though, they never look back. At Comfort Life, we hear so often from people who wish they had made the move earlier. Why?
- You leave behind all mundane housework and upkeep that’s a lot of bother.
- You gain a hundred or more new friends all your own age and similar in background.
- You’re surrounded by caring, loving staff who watch out for you, around the clock.
- You can take part in a schedule of enjoyable activities including outings and amenities.
For many who make the move, life is often better than they ever dreamed possible. Jeannine, for example, moved to a North Vancouver senior living community and says she hopes “to stay for ages.” She has her own space, she eats great food every day, and there’s “lots to do… this is home.” A fellow resident of hers, Dorothy, lists exercise classes, bingo, and the casino as her favourite things to do and exclaims, “there’s no time to be lonely here!” Before moving, she was alone in her own home and now realizes how bad it felt. At a nearby community, Cathy says that in her condo in West Vancouver, she could go “two or three days before [I’d] see anybody out in the hallway.” She was “sure there was a better way.” She was right, and she found it in a community listed above.
