Many of Vancouver's senior apartment buildings can also allow you to partake in communal activities. These might include group outings, shopping trips, golf and other sports. If you require some assistance you will also be able to hire home care to come in and take care of your needs.

It’s a poorly held secret that senior apartments make for the best of all possible worlds: you have independence, living in a loose group of peers and a simple monthly payment. Be sure to pick the right apartment building the first time, though.

Vancouver seniors tell us that the thing they like best about apartment living is the community of peers. Many of them love the independence and freedom and taking control of their own destiny. The feeling of rejuvenation and of finding the perfect fit is the ultimate value of moving into a seniors’ apartment community.

Finding the right seniors apartment in Vancouver

Searching for an apartment in Vancouver, today, comes with some considerations that might be different from a house or from apartments the last time you looked for one.

Take Comfort: retirement home reviews
Before you commit to any seniors' housing, read reviews of Vancouver retirement communities.

Here’s a rundown of things to look at in a seniors' apartment:

  • Location! How close is the apartment to all the things you will need or want to do regularly?
  • Come up with a list of three or four Vancouver senior apartment buildings that look good from brochures or from the online listings below and your other investigations then look closer.
  • As you look at your options, consider the area. If you do not know the area, learn all you can about its history, the crime rate and other factors that are important to quality of living.
  • Absolute must: talk to people already living in the building, ask them how long they have lived there and how well they like it. Most importantly, find out what they like and don’t like about the apartment building and consider whether these are things that also matter to you.
  • Visit several times at different times of the day when you are learning about the apartment. Things look different during different times of the week. Traffic may be busier at certain times of the day, outside noises might be very different, or you may see different fellow tenants.
  • Peak into the dark corners. Is the building well maintained and cleaned? Is it up to your standards in terms of upkeep? Listen to your gut feelings as you make the final decision.
