Our Retirement Home Search How does it work?
An in-depth discussion to learn why you are considering retirement living, what is important to you when considering where you live and discuss all the options that are available to you.
Based on our discussion, we will investigate all retirement living options that are available by looking at several factors: availability, pricing, floor plans, and location.
Our senior advisors welcome you to attend the tours with us or we can do the leg-work for you. Once we gather the information on the selected homes that meet the criteria that was discussed, we will narrow down the options that are the best fit.
Review the homes that are available and set-up a final tour to confirm your interest. If you require additional services to be set-up for you ie. downsizing, moving, and selling of your home, we can assist you in coordinating these additional services.
Retirement Living Options
Independent Supported Living - Independent Supported Living (ISL) is ideal for individuals who can still live independently but enjoy having options available if assistance is needed. This option provides residents with convenient access to dining, medical care, entertainment and more. The independent lifestyle offers residents a safe living environment, but with minimal assistance. Hospitality services, such as housekeeping, meals, and laundry may or may not be included in the monthly fees, but are typically available.
Assisted Living - Assisted Living (AL) is a great option for individuals who have difficulty with daily activities at home. Residents are able to enjoy an independent lifestyle, but also receive regular support for a variety of daily activities ranging from cleaning to meal preparation. Housekeeping and maintenance services are often included in the monthly fees, along with laundry services, utilities, and meals. In addition to enjoying the peace of mind that comes from this maintenance-free lifestyle, residents can take advantage of a full calendar of events, activities, outings, and countless opportunities for social engagement. Additional care services such as medication management or assistance taking a shower, are also available.
Memory Care - Memory Care (MC) communities meet the needs of individuals living with memory impairment, such as Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. These communities offer a secure environment designed to engage and care for people living with memory impairments. Similar to Assisted Living, amenities and services are included, and assistance with the activities of daily living are offered. Also they provide added benefits specifically for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia—including around-the-clock care, specially-trained staff, and activities designed for cognitive engagement. Enhanced safety and security features are provided to ensure that residents are safe and thriving in an environment designed to accept, support, and stimulate. Memory care is offered either on a unit/floor within a retirement home or the community is specifically designed only for those living with a cognitive impairment.
Short-term/Respite Stays- Retirement homes often offer short-term stays for seniors who want to "try out" senior living. Some homes offer short stays for those recovering from a hospital procedure and who need that extra support before they return to their own home. Regardless of the circumstances, short stays provide seniors the opportunity to really understand the benefits of retirement living, with access to nutritious and delicious meals, social and recreational programming, and access to specialized support services.
Long-Term Care - Long-term care homes provide around-the-clock nursing care and supervision, medical care, help with daily activities and interests, and a safe, caring environment. The majority of people who live in long-term care have some form of cognitive impairment and physical frailty, along with chronic health conditions that have seriously compromised their health.
