Renting or leasing a seniors' apartment

Seniors' apartments in a retirement community will include home maintenance services and some other features that make living independently a little bit easier than owning one's own home. 

Searching for a senior's apartment

Looking for an apartment for a senior is not very different from looking for an apartment for anyone. Here's a primer or reminder of what to think about:

  • Location, location, location: how convenient is the apartment for all the things you (or your senior parent) need to do in an average day, week or month?
  • Be choosy: make a long list, then make a short list that you narrow down to the one you want. Making a decision to move - even to an apartment and especially as a senior - should be treated as a critical decision.
  • Research: learn all you can about the area, about the history of the apartment or retirement home into which you are thinking of moving.
  • Ask and learn: get references from other seniors who have rented there or elsewhere. Look online to see if you can find reviews of the seniors' apartment in which you are interested. Ask the residence if they have someone who will recommend their apartments.
  • Visit numerous times: make sure that your first impression was right or take a second look at that place that you were not immediately completely in love with.

Seniors' apartments: a spectrum of choices

Senior apartments can refer to a variety of possibilities. There are a variety of apartment choices as follows:

Active lifestyle apartments is ideal for couples (or even singles) who have just emptied the nest and are looking for a different way to live. Some active lifestyle units are found in apartment buildings or condominium towers, where people 50 and older will end up living in community with each other. This type of community will not have care on hand, and is most likely to be built around creating a lifestyle of freedom for renters.

Subsidized housing in an apartment complex is created with seniors of modest to low income in mind, who may be living on pension only. These (sometimes called frail care) may be government-sponsored and may be specifically for elderly who may require support for daily living and other supportive services. In Ontario, this falls under general subsidized housing, which is available to seniors and anyone else who can demonstrate need. Learn more at settlement.org/ontario/housing.

An apartment in a seniors retirement residence may also be called a suite. These are often one bedroom or even two bedroom apartment-style suites where you have your own space away from the community. Contrary to conventional apartments you will have housekeeping and other services provided to you. Similar to other apartments, you may have your own kitchenette and other personal amenities. "Rent" for this style of apartment will cover many more services than you will get from a typical apartment building.

We know that searching for an apartment, no matter your age, can be a tiring, stressful process but in the end, after you've made the right decision, it will all be worth it.

Pros and cons of senior living apartments

People in their senior years may find it hard to move. Many people want to stay where they are in a home they love and may even put it bluntly: "I want to stay here ‘til the end." It’s difficult to make a change but once you get over the resistance, the positives are many.

Here are the advantages we have heard from people who have moved: 

Be surprised by how you feel in a new environment. Many people who go out and look at seniors' apartment options are surprised by how bright and cheerful some places are. They recognize right away that these bright interiors would have a positive effect on them every day. You feel happier when you are in bright, new surroundings.

Be surprised by the advantages of community. Bill moved into a senior living apartment building in central Ontario, and he’s very happy with the fact that he always has someone to sit and eat with. "When I was living on my own," he told us, "I lost over 70 pounds in 6 months because I just wasn’t eating right. Here, they really know what they’re doing. I feel so much better every day." He has a group of friends who all truly appreciate each other. "We get along great and every time we go out together, it works out great."

Be surprised by what you can afford. Many people are set on not moving based on a nebulous idea that good quality retirement living is very expensive. However, when people do the actual math, they find that their cost of living alone is higher than they realize. The blanket monthly rental fee looks expensive on the surface but when you account for everything that’s covered, it can be surprising what you can afford. There’s no more property taxes, roof repairs and many other latent living expenses covered in the monthly rent of a senior living apartment building. Read about how seniors realized they could afford it and read our full look at means of affording high quality senior living.
