THE Signs OF CHANGE

When is the best time to move to a retirement residence? T here is no magic age or time in someone’s life to move into a retirement residence. Everyone is different and people have different needs and wants for their retirement. Many times, people wait for a crisis before they start looking at retirement living. Maybe it was a fall or health issue that prompted you or a loved one to begin the

search. While this is a natural response and we are prepared to help people with this decision at any stage in life, we encourage individuals to start thinking about Seasons before an issue arises. When you are well, you have the luxury of time on your side. You can visit the different retirement residences in the area and weigh your options. At Seasons, you are welcome to book a personalized appointment to view the home and potentially meet your new neighbours and service team members with who you will be interacting each day.

If you are still unsure as to whether it’s time to think about moving into a retirement residence, you might consider these questions: > Are you eating three nutritious meals a day? > Is it getting harder to keep up with cleaning and maintaining your home? > Do you still drive, and if not, is it easy for you to arrange transportation? > If you live alone, do you feel unsafe or lonely?
