What is assisted living in Pickering?

Assisted living offers a housing and care solution for seniors who need some assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). Typically, this includes support for tasks like bathing, dressing, or transferring (getting out of bed.) Medication administration is also part of assisted living. Retirement homes also take care of chores like cooking, housekeeping and laundry. Seniors boast about the ways this lifestyle has allowed them to thrive in their retirement.

Here are just a few of the benefits:

Improve your wellbeing

The number one goal of all retirement communities is to improve residents’ well-being. This will look different for each individual. That’s why prospective residents meet with a staff member of the assisted living facility prior to moving in. Together, they create a personalized care plan.

In this meeting, you discuss your specific needs, and the methods of care that work best for you. On-site nurses and PSWs are highly-trained and educated in all the best practices of senior care. They will always respect the dignity and independence of their residents.

Assisted living communities provide peace of mind for both seniors and family members. Family knows that emergency assistance is available 24/7. Staff keep a close eye to ensure seniors in care are comfortable, healthy and living their best life.

Your diet taken care of

Another thing you'll no longer have to worry about after moving into assisted living is your diet. As people age, cooking gets increasingly difficult. This may mean the meals you cook aren’t fully meeting your dietary needs. In assisted living, all your meals are prepared for you by certified chefs. They can accommodate any specialized diets, including vegetarian, diabetic, and gluten-free.

Norma, one resident of a Pickering retirement home, confirms food quality. “The culinary and dining room staff have been very receptive to [my] requests and concerns. Healthy options are available [here, and] meals are tasty and nutritious.”

Get the most out of your retirement

As you age, it can be difficult to accept that you need more support in daily living than you once did. This makes the transition into assisted living challenging. Once you do have the support you need, however, you'll feel a renewed sense of empowerment. You'll take back your life, your independence, and get the most out of your retirement. You will have more time to pursue your hobbies and interests. There are also a plethora of social events! Your lifestyle is yours to decide – spend your days swimming laps in the pool, cooking in the hobby kitchen, or sipping a craft beer in the pub.

June, another resident of a Pickering retirement home, sums up the perks of assisted living quite nicely. “I've been here for almost a year, I've become friends with wonderful people, been fed fantastic meals, and participated in many of the fun-filled activities that are offered here. I enjoy it here.”
