Independent Retirement Living and Assisted Living in Burlington

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.

Some retirement residences provide both independent living, independent supportive living, assisted living and memory care options in one residence, to allow for a continuum of care. 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 home.

An Assisted living home (sometimes called a supportive living home) 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; 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 Burlington cost?

Prices can vary depending on your needs. 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 a welcome, affordable 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 can also make new friends who may share interests similar to yours. 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.
