In our Edmonton retirement homes, it’s all about living in a community, with little to worry about other than how you want to spend your time. In addition, there are several options to choose from in terms of design and amenities.

Independent Retirement Living and Assisted Living in Edmonton

If you do not require assistance with personal care, independent retirement living is the right option for you. For additional assistance to get through your day, assisted living is the best choice. Either way, you’ll enjoy living in your own comfortably designed suite and benefit from the activities you choose each day in your home.

Some retirement residences provide both independent living and assisted living (sometimes called supportive living) options in one residence, to allow for a continuum of care. Some of our homes also offer designated supportive living. The benefit of this type of retirement living is that healthy, independent seniors can enjoy a self-sufficient lifestyle, and then as their health needs change they can transition to an assisted living option in the same community.

Assisted living (sometimes called supportive living) is best suited for seniors who need some level of support with activities of daily living, while independent living is designed for active seniors who are largely self-sufficient. Both offer optional services for added convenience, such as housekeeping and laundry; designated assisted living homes offer a broader range of care services to support your daily activities, as well as care options including dementia care.

How much does a retirement home in Edmonton cost?

Prices can vary. That’s why we suggest you check your options to determine pricing. When you choose to live in a retirement home, you also have the opportunity to choose which suite you like and which services and care options you need. All of these choices help determine how much you pay.

Retirement living is an option for seniors who no longer want to worry about the upkeep or expenses associated with maintaining their home. In a retirement home, you not only have a suite of your own that you’ve chosen, you have delicious meals, social activities, a thriving environment and the ability to let someone else think about mundane tasks like cleaning, so that you can focus on what matters to you most. You also have the comfort of knowing that you have access to the care and support you need to manage your health, through onsite or visiting care professionals. In some cases, you can also choose to bring in government-funded or private services.
