Retirement Homes

While Retirement Homes may vary in the services they provide, typically a retirement home is designed for seniors who need some supervisory care and assistance with personal care. The level of care and nursing attention in retirement homes is lower, often significantly so, than nursing homes.

Some retirement homes offer apartment style living, in which a resident’s room contains a bedroom, a bathroom, and a small kitchenette. Other retirement homes have rooms that resemble a hotel room with only a bedroom and bathroom. Most retirement homes are “private pay” (no government subsidy) and rates vary from home to home.

When choosing a retirement home for you or your loved one, we strongly advise you to tour each and every home on your shortlist. Use our Retirement Home Checklist (click here to open) to guide and inform your tour. After touring all of the retirement homes on your shortlist, reread your answers and take your time in making a final decision.
