There’s never been a better time to explore senior living options — here’s why

When Tracey helped move her aunt to Chartwell Renaissance Retirement Residence in 2021, the decision not only brought her aunt contentment, but her whole family.

“The experience ever since has been five-star,” she tells. “The environment itself has the feeling of being on a cruise ship. Greeted warmly at the door every time, food is wonderful and having amazing staff 24 hours a day brings us peace of mind. The transition for my aunt downsizing has been an easy and enjoyable experience.”

As society gradually shifts back to pre-pandemic norms, older adults who have delayed a decision to downsize or seek a living arrangement that provides more freedom from the responsibilities of home ownership have begun to consider their options again.

There is no denying that for many, the prospect of less time and energy spent on home and property maintenance and more opportunities to socialize, pursue interests, or try something new have endured, if not increased because of the past two years.

A key benefit of life in a retirement residence is having consistent access to staff who are devoted to helping seniors live worry-free. “The staff are friendly, welcoming and incredibly patient,” says John, resident since 2019. “The servers bring us comfort, warmth, humour and the occasional hug.”
