Living in retirement homes : many benefits

Benefits from living in retirement home

 

It must be admitted, the term "residence" sounded moribund a few years ago. However, the field of seniors' accommodation has evolved considerably to dynamic living environments that are perfectly adapted to the needs of retirees.

 

If you are starting to consider selling your home for retirement , you are surely aware of the different options available to you. But do you know all the benefits of retirement homes?

 

Have fun and socialize, while being at home!

A large proportion of people looking for a residence have lived in large families. As a result, many fear loneliness and wish to feel surrounded. Retirement homes are designed to meet this need because they allow you to live in a real community.

 

The different activities available bring together those who share common interests, but beyond that, meeting people of the same generation helps to keep a real social connection.

 

Simplicity and freedom of action

Retirement homes allow you to meet as a group for leisure or meals while having an intimate home, decorated according to your tastes. You are free to organize your day according to your lifestyle and the level of activity that suits you.

 

In addition, by freeing you from a number of tasks, this type of hosting simplifies many aspects of your life. Are you going on a trip? No need to worry about the mail or ask the neighbor to mow the grass. Retirement home "à la carte" services can really make your life easier!

 

Continuum of Care accommodation

New retirees often have no special needs, but it is reassuring to know that services and care will be available under the same roof if the need arises. During a convalescence, for example, residents can receive the necessary care to recover.

 

In addition, all-inclusive formulas are not uncommon. You will have access to 3 meals / day (no need to prepare meals), weekly housekeeping, bedding maintenance, clothing maintenance, etc.

 

Security

The security aspect of living in residence is also an important benefit. With CCTV systems, sprinklers , trained 24-hour personnel, and heat and smoke detectors, residents often have greater peace of mind than their home.

 

In addition, in the case of seniors suffering from Alzheimer's, the risk of running away is higher and this is sometimes more and more difficult to control. Many homes offer prosthetic units with coded doors to prevent such incidents.

 

On-site activities all day

Fitness rooms, movie theaters, libraries, billiard rooms, yoga classes, aquafitness ... here are just some of the activities that can be offered to residents. In fact, large groups of retirement homes often have hair salons, beauty salons and on-site banking services.
