INDEPENDENT  LIVING: ADDING LIFE TO YOUR YEARS

retirementResidence

Residents in Park Place's retirement residences enjoy time for fun in many forms, from day
trips to earning a championship to whatever they want to do with time freed from home
maintenance and chores. Small pets are welcome.

Living in a retirement residence is just like living in any rental suite or condominium: you remain independent, make your own decisions about what you want to do each day, and can move out at any time - although most of our residents tell us they're having too much fun to leave.

The main difference between a standard apartment and a retirement residence is the level of services offered. Retirement Residences offer served meals, housekeeping and linen laundry, and a range of on-site activities and social events. Sites often include parking and allow pets. For added security, there are staff available 24/7 and an emergency alert system , so residents can summon help if needed.

Residency fees are often all-inclusive and include meals, most utilities, and other services. This is an added convenience for seniors who have better things to do than house-clean, cook, or juggle bills.

Residents and their guests can enter or leave the residence at will, just as they can in any other rental. Residents can also arrange for additional support services as needed, either through community health or home nursing agencies, just as they would in their own homes. For those requiring mobility aids, retirement residences are wheelchair and walker accessible.

Most residents choose a retirement residence to enjoy the socialization and services. It is like being on permanent vacation: meals are served, rooms cleaned, and entertainment/activities provided. There is no loss of independence or control. In fact, a requirement for living in a retirement residence is that the resident must be able to direct his or her own affairs. For those who may need a little extra help, support services can be discreetly provided.

Since independent living is akin to renting an apartment and is therefore a lifestyle choice, there is no government subsidy available. However, B.C. seniors moving into a lower-cost independent living home may quality for the Shelter Aid for Elderly Renters (SAFER) grant to assist with paying rent.
