CARE DEFINITIONS

S easons will assess each resident’s needs prior to move in and then recommend the appropriate bundled care package that best meets those needs. See below for our care options and what they mean for yourself or a loved one. For detailed information, we encourage you to book a personalized appointment at your Seasons community of interest. Independent Living (IL) The townhouses and independent apartments at Seasons Retirement Communities offer independent living. They are designed for seniors who can live independently but who wish to live in a community designated for seniors with access to social or recreational programming. Our one-storey townhouses and apartments are equipped with an emergency call system but no regular care services are provided. Independent Supportive Living (ISL) Independent supportive living suits an independent, active senior who does not need assistance with the activities of daily living, but who benefits from a supportive, congregate living environment. Residents in ISL receive assistance with scheduled care and typically enjoy services such as 24-hour emergency response, three meals daily, weekly housekeeping, and medication administration.

Assisted Living (AL) The assisted living program at Seasons provides supportive care to residents who need assistance with daily tasks, but who do not require the skilled care provided at a long-term care residence. Residents receive the same services as ISL, plus any additional care services that assist with the activities of daily living, including unscheduled care. Memory Care The memory care program at Seasons is specifically designed to care for seniors living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in a dedicated, secure area within some of our residences. Memory care community residents receive specialized, AL care services. The Seasons Embrace Today ® memory care philosophy requires a deep understanding of who our residents are, so staff may adjust their interactions and respond with whatever is needed in the moment. Each of our trained service team members commits to approaching the workday with a promise to do his or her best to make all interactions positive and meaningful, one moment at a time. We believe that when we have positive, authentic relationships among all care partners, it elevates person-centred care and makes it more meaningful.
