Retirement Housing Options

Retirement Housing Options

Whether you’re hoping to stay in your own home or it’s time to investigate a retirement community or retirement village, you’ve got some big decisions ahead of you. Pressure from well-meaning family members who are worried about your safety can make your choices even more difficult.

Below I’ve outlined the most common retirement housing options for older adults in Ontario. Terminology can be confusing, so wherever possible I’ve listed the “also known as” terms for the various options.

I also recommend checking out thecareguide.ca, a comprehensive online resource that offers tips and guidance to help you choose the best senior housing option for you, as well as a tool for finding nearby facilities that will meet your needs. Or give me a call and I can give you assistance.
