Terms related to levels of senior care in Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan’s retirement communities include independent living, assisted-living, memory care supportive care and long-term care residences.

Independent living for seniors

Independent living retirement communities are ideally suited to active and healthy seniors who do not require extensive care, but want to live in a community of their peers. Most privately run retirement homes listed above will feature independent living. The atmosphere here is relaxed, with all basic daily tasks like housekeeping, cooking and other chores taken care of. It’s an ideal lifestyle change for people who’ve been living alone or in a neighbourhood where their neighbours are younger now. In fact, it really is all about lifestyle. 

Here’s a brief look at why you’d want to move into independent living:

  • Friends just outside the door. This is one of the biggest appeals of independent living. You’re surrounded by a group of peers who all share the same interests. It’s a big change from any other kind of living. Because everyone around you is similar in age it’s easy to make friends, and to always have someone to do things with. 
  • Life gets easier. Since there’s no more housework, yard work, or any other domestic duties, you have a lot more leisure time. That leaves more time to indulge in passions and interests. After people move into independent living in a Saskatchewan seniors’ home, they find that some things that have been “in the back of their mind” can now come to the fore. Some people take up yoga, others get involved in gardening. There’s time to fully explore your passions all day long when you move into a retirement home. 
  • Peace of mind for you and your family. Many times family members will worry about aging loved ones being on their own. They worry about things like, if you have a fall, or if something worse happens to you. In a retirement home, there’s always someone around. What’s more, communities are designed for optimal accessibility, so stairs and narrow hallways are no longer a hazard. Family finds this the biggest relief of having a loved one in a retirement home. 
  • Preparation for change. As you get older, your health is going to change. In the words of one senior, “You have to look ahead of the curve and be prepared for change.” Many retirement homes offer some health care services, or have all assisted living options available. This way, you know they are ready for you, and you know you won’t have to move.    

Today's retirement communities offer a variety of activities and options that might have been unheard of in previous generations. You can find homes with onsite golf courses, indoor swimming pools, virtual driving ranges and so much more. Take a full look at all the pros and cons of moving into independent living.
