Continuing care and other options for seniors

Find a list of retirement homes

Ontario is ensuring that seniors living in retirement homes are given the best care services and facilities. This is especially important now, as by 2017, seniors in Canada will account for a larger share of the population than children 14 and under. The Retirement Homes Act (2011) covers regulations concerning mandatory care and safety standards for any care service provided by a retirement home in the province. A retirement home enables residents to live as independently as possible, while providing certain services and social activities. Retirement residences in Willowdale offer housekeeping, laundry and meals.

Finding the right care in Willowdale

Wilowdale nursing homes offer a high level of care and round-the-clock medical aid available.

Assisted Living Facilities (ALF’s) are for seniors who are independent but need a little help with daily activities like bathing, grooming or eating. Respite care is a temporary form of senior care that allows caregivers a break. Certain senior care homes in Willowdale have ALF’s and nursing care under a single roof. Such homes are also known as Continuing Care retirement communities (CCRCs).

Luxury retirement homes are for seniors who wish to live the luxurious lifestyle they deserve. Picturesque locales, elegant furnishings and fine food are part of these attractive homes. Each retirement home ensures that the elderly receive adequate care services. Salons, libraries, chapels, common rooms and lounges add to the charm of many of Willowdale’s senior homes.

Willowdale: a great place to make your retirement home

Willowdale is one of the most peaceful neighbourhoods in the Toronto area. It offers condominium townhouses and high-rise condominium towers. Willowdale has an ethnically diverse community, with around 50% of all Willowdale residents being immigrants.

Willowdale’s retirement homes offer world-class amenities and services for seniors looking for care outside their own home. Retirement homes provide all that is required by the elderly to enjoy a pleasant and complete life without the hassles of home maintenance and daily chores. Personalized care plans, food safety, fall prevention, emergency and evacuation plans, as well as skilled staff ensure that the elderly are healthy, secure and cared for at all times.
