Best Retirement Homes
Gracious Retirement Living
Assisted living in Ontario has always carried the stigma of being an unwelcomed experience for seniors and families alike. With today's increasing demand for these facilities, there are new, innovative ways of developing a facility that can be enjoyed and respected for all involved. A more welcoming, family-oriented surrounding can dissolve old misconceptions and replace them with a community where people want to gather and enjoy.
Generally, there are three types of living options to choose from in these facilities. There are independent living accommodations, assisted living accommodations, and memory care accommodations. They all contain different levels of care, depending on the needs of each individual.
Independent Living
These stylish living quarters are ideal for seniors who do not require daily personal care services from nurses and facility staff. They offer the total freedom to come and go, with provided transportation or designated parking spots for personal vehicles. Emergency care is provided twenty four hours a day, seven days a week with an emergency monitoring system for all residents.
Assisted Living
Assisted living retirement communities are for people who still want to live independently, but require little to moderate assistance with daily tasks and needs, such as laundry, companionship, housekeeping, medical supervision and drug delivery plans. These rooms are located in close proximity to the lobby and all facility amenities.
Memory Care Neighbourhoods
Designed for people with mild to more advanced Alzheimer's, as well as other forms of memory loss, these designated communities provide day and night personalized assistance in a safe secure environment. Residents feel comfortable and at home. Themed atmospheres and gifts are provided to spark older memories of love and accomplishment, giving prolonged satisfaction.
Newer aged senior living welcomes visitors at all times of the day, who are encouraged to stay for meals in à la carte style restaurants with specialized chefs. Guest bedrooms, which are hotel-styled, are available for a nominal fee.        
Other amenities available:
  • Lounge – sit and socialize over a game of cards, or read a good book
  • Gift shop and corner store for general necessities and reading material
  • Bistro and gardens provide casual sitting areas with sensational views
  • Dining room, and private dining room with three meals a day
  • Theatre for shows and plays
  • Solarium

Knowing that residents are well and fully taken care of helps to put the minds of concerned families at ease. At competitive prices, these assisted living residence options are widely available for all income levels and are ideal for anyone needing a little more care.
With a growing number of seniors due to aging baby boomers, there will inevitably be higher competition for space in the coming years which may will result in limited opportunity for retirement living. Keeping up with the changing market is recommended and a visit to a facility is encouraged in order to begin planning for a move to a new senior adult lifestyle.
