Loneliness, lack of physical activity, and fighting to maintain independence are among the many issues that seniors vying to age in place (at home) face. Many of them believe that if they move into a retirement home, they’ll lose their sense of independence. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Contemporary retirement living communities in Brampton are committed to helping seniors uphold their preferred independent lifestyle. The intent isn’t to try to control every aspect of your life; rather, it’s to help you live your life to the fullest.
Here are just a few reasons why independent supported living might be right for you or your loved one.
Opportunities to Socialize
Living in a respectful and close-knit community gives you endless opportunities to meet and socialize with people your own age. From hosting coffee dates to playing billiards, going on long walks with good friends, to attending and getting involved in community events, socializing can help you stay happy and healthy in your golden years.
A Safe and Secure Living Environment
It’s important that you choose to live in a safe and secure environment. Retirement living in Brampton offers you just that. Surveillance cameras and security personnel are available 24/7 to attend to your needs and protect you in the event of a dangerous situation. Knowing that you’ll have everything you need to take care of yourself and have access to round-the-clock care if you need it will give you and your family invaluable peace of mind.
Access to Daily Fitness and Physiotherapy
Another important aspect of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is to make sure you’re getting plenty of exercise on a daily basis. After all, maintaining a physically active lifestyle is essential to overall health and happiness. Participate in aqua fit classes, swim laps in an indoor heated pool, and join energetic exercise classes in a state-of-the-art fitness centre or work out whenever you feel like it!
Healthy Meal and Snack Options
Eating healthy, nutrient-dense meals and snacks is an important part of maintaining a fit lifestyle. Senior housing in Brampton means you’ll have complete access to a customized healthy meal plan that includes lunch and dinner as well as a wide selection of snack options to help keep you energized throughout the day. Meals are prepared fresh daily according to your dietary specifications by world-class chefs. And the best part is that you can make reservations to have your friends and family members join you for lunch or dinner!
Independent living for seniors means that you have access to your own form of transportation. The mode of transportation—driving your own car or taking public transit—is completely up to you! Many retirement communities also provide residents with designated parking spaces where they can park their vehicles.
Help with Activities of Daily Living
Maintaining an independent lifestyle well past retirement age doesn’t mean you won’t need some assistance with daily tasks from time to time. Senior living communities provide access to 24/7 security personnel and systems, laundry service, cleaning services, and so much more. You can also provide the residence with specific information about your physical conditions and the type of assistance you may need so that the team members know what to expect.
