Our assisted living homes offer the best of both worlds – the many benefits of the independent retirement home lifestyle as well as a range of optional care and services delivered by qualified staff to suit your personalized needs and preferences. In addition to taking care of the cooking, cleaning and laundry, we’re here to assist you with health care, medication monitoring and administration, bathing, dressing and more. We also provide regularly scheduled activities to help you stay active and to form new relationships and friendships, all in a safe and secure environment.
What is the difference between assisted living versus independent living?
Assisted 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; assisted living homes offer a broader range of care services to support your daily activities, as well as care options including dementia care.
If you do not require assistance with personal care, independent living is the right option for you. If you need an extra hand to get through your day, assisted living is the best choice. Either way, you’ll enjoy living in your own comfortably designed suite, come and go as you please, and benefit from the activities you choose each day.
What is the cost of senior assisted living?
That depends on the unique care and support services you require. Typically, care services are additional to the standard suite accommodation cost, and if your individual care needs increase, the cost may also increase. Most of Revera’s retirement homes offer LiveWell™, an approach that’s all about making you feel your best, now and tomorrow, so you can keep being you. Together, we’ll come up with a personalized health and wellness plan that ensures any costs are related to your own specific needs. If your needs happen to change, we’ll work with you to adjust your plan to support your continued care and comfort.
In some provinces in which Revera operates, the provincial government may provide funding to eligible assisted living residents.
