Finding a retirement home: A turning point in your life
Finding a retirement home can become a long and complex process. There are many criteria to be taken into consideration before deciding upon your future residence, such as neighbourhood, type of residence, services offered, and even the environment.
With approximately 2000 retirement homes in Quebec, choosing a residence involves a lot of thought and careful selection. Do you want to live close to your relatives? What type of retirement home are you looking for? What level of service and security do you require, and what is your budget?
Finding a retirement home is a turning point for you and your relatives. Seek out assistance from Visavie, housing experts for seniors with some 30 years of experience, and avoid making any mistakes on your own.
