Choosing The Most Appropriate Type Of Retirement Residence 

Whether it is for you or a loved one, choosing a retirement residence is a turning point that can be long and complicated if you are not properly informed.

Retirement residences for seniors are distinguished by various criteria, such as their geographical location, environment, services offered, safety and security, and the type of accommodation, in particular.

When it comes to retirement residences, a person’s autonomy will be evaluated by their ability to move about, without assistance, in order to accomplish daily tasks. Discover the various types of living residences for seniors.  

Retirement residences for autonomous seniors essentially cater to autonomous persons in full possession of their physical and mental capacities. These residences are often independent living environments that allow seniors to take part in recreational and customized activities, maintaining social relationships with other retirees.

Retirement residences for semi-autonomous seniors are intended for individuals who require minimal assistance (between 1-2 hours/day) to complete various daily tasks. Seniors with early-stage dementia (e.g. Alzheimer’s) are also considered as semi-autonomous clients.

Retirement residences for those with diminishing autonomy and long-term care centres (CHSLD) are designed for those clients whose physical and psychological autonomy is insufficient to live in their normal environment. The care and support provided these individuals often exceed 3 hours per day and requires qualified medical support.

If you or a loved one is autonomous, semi-autonomous or losing your autonomy, different types of residences can meet your needs with adapted services. Don’t risk making the wrong choice; seek out the advice of one of our housing counsellors.
