Finding the right retirement home for each senior, free of charge

Since her fall, your mother can no longer climb the stairs to her apartment. You only have a few days to find a residence for her to move into when she gets out of the hospital. We know how overwhelmed you can feel by the complexity of the process and the multitude of facilities. We are committed to working with you to find the senior residence that will allow your mother to continue to thrive.

Looking for a residence is a turning point in both a senior’s life and that of his or her loved ones. You deserve the support of a trusted expert to ensure you make the best decision.

Since 1988, Visavie has assisted more than 200,000 families in their search for a seniors’ residence.

Our 4-Step Method

Choosing a retirement home is a significant step for you and your loved ones. Since 1988, our 4-step method has helped us understand your needs and guide you, at your own pace, from the first phone call to the day you or your loved one moves into a residence.


Analyzing your needs

The first phone call is to talk about yours and your elderly loved one’s situation in order to fully understand your search needs and criteria (lodging preferences, lifestyle, type of residence, planned budget, etc.).


Presenting an initial selection of retirement homes

Following the telephone interview, one of our senior living advisors will visit you at home to show you an initial selection of retirement homes. The step refines your choices and informs you about the various tax deduction programs that you and your loved ones are entitled to.


Visiting the selected retirement homes

After selecting one or more residences together, we contact the establishments for you and we also organize the visits.
If you wish, your advisor can accompany you during your visits, free of charge. He or she will help you compare the different retirement homes and ensure that all important questions are answered.


Choosing complementary services

Changing a senior’s environment and moving him or her into a new living environment can involve a number of delicate steps.

Do you need a mover, a notary or additional home care support? No problem. Your Visavie advisor will be happy to assist you with the steps involved in the move. Our trusted partners can assist you in helping your loved one transition smoothly.
