Seniors Housing - Older Adults

When it comes to caring for Seniors in Canada, there are many different options available. As our family members age, their care, health, and housing needs may change over time. We know you want the best options for your friends or family, and we are here to help you discover your options. There are several different types of home and housing care available for Seniors. In-Home Care offers seniors the opportunity to continue to live independently, but receive monthly, weekly, or daily help in their own home. Independent living communities offer seniors a community setting where active seniors are able to complete almost all activities of daily living with little assistance; light housekeeping and some meal plans may be provided. Retirement homes typically offer apartment style rooms with many facilities offered in the building. This may include organized recreational programs recreational, meals, and transportation within the community and some forms of health care. Nursing homes also provide residential care, however they are for seniors who have difficulty managing daily tasks or the basic activities of daily living, who may have physical or mental restrictions and need full-time health care. Are you unsure of which option may be best for a loved-one? Would you like more information regarding the costs of the different levels of care? Do you need assistance moving a loved one from one level of care to another? Are you looking for financial assistance to provide care for a Senior in your family? We know you have a lot of questions and want to make the right decisions. We are here to help.
