Taking your first steps to remaining independent and active
in retirement living is all about personal choice.
Independent living retirement homes are usually paid privately (not subsidized), and don’t require referral from any government body; you shop for and select a home using your own list of priorities.
Understand Your Options
Residents might still drive their own car, so parking is usually available. Most residences will offer a private bus for local shopping and excursions as well.
Many will have additional services including:
- Nurse or care staff, part-time or up to 24-hours, 7-days
- A doorman or concierge
- Fitness staff
- Swimming pool
- Recreational facilities
