How do I find the right retirement residence?

After deciding to move to a retirement residence, your next step is to find the one that best fits your wants and needs. You’ll want the right mix of amenities and services along with an overall “good feeling” about the residence. Here are a few tips:

  1. Decide where you want to live

    Do you want to be located close to family? Do you want to live near your hometown? Or do you want to take on a new adventure in a different town?

  2. Determine your priorities

    What is most important to you? Consider your needs and wants before choosing a senior living community. One residence might offer an amenity you desire, like a view or a walking trail, while another may not. Does the home offer the type of room or suite that you’re interested in, or the services you require?

  3. Contact the residence and schedule a visit

    Once you’ve narrowed it down to a few options, then schedule visits to the homes that meet your criteria. Touring them will give you a first-hand look feeling for the residence’s character. This checklist may be useful on your tours:

    • View living spaces and common areas
    • Explore what type of lifestyle programs are offered
    • Talk with a current resident about his/her experience
    • Observe how staff members interact with residents
    • Ask about nearby churches, hospitals, shops and parks
    • Check what types of transportation services are available
  4. Ask for more information

    It’s hard to cover everything on a tour. You may have other questions afterward. Ask for a brochure and make a note of our website, as well as our contact person’s phone number and/or e-mail address, so you can follow up.
