What is a Retirement Home?

A retirement home is a multi-unit housing facility intended for older adults and seniors. These facilities accommodate older adults with many different levels of care.  Some retirement homes offer minimal to moderate levels of care, whereas others focus on the provision of professional medical care to their elderly residents. Offering a wide range of living services, amenities and activities, retirement homes give seniors and older adults a sense daily enjoyment and personal belonging.

What is a Retirement Community?

A retirement community is a private, planned community for retirees, older adults, and seniors. These communities consist of a group of houses in a particular geographic area, which share common amenities and features. Many retirement communities are also gated, providing an additional level of security to their residents.

Accommodations in Retirement Homes

Retirement homes offer a number of accommodation options including shared rooms, bachelor, one bedroom and two bedroom apartment suites. 
Each retirement home differs from the next, giving you plenty of options to choose from in order to find the best fit.  Each residence will vary when it comes to their amenities and services – some of the most common include:
  • Dining rooms
  • Common areas
  • Lounges
  • Hairdressers
  • Salons
  • Small shops
  • Libraries
  • Swimming pools
  • Gardens
  • Event room
Service offerings may include, but are not limited to:
  • Meal preparations
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Homemaking
  • Personal care
  • Health services
  • Recreational activities
  • Social gatherings
  • Group outings
  • Religious services

What to Expect at a Retirement Community

Retirement communities allow older adults and seniors to live in complete independence, but at the same time, provide them with a friendly atmosphere to enjoy with other elders who share similar interests. Amenities and services vary between communities, but can include:
  • Clubhouses
  • Swimming pools
  • Arts and crafts
  • Boating (depending on where the community is situated)
  • Walking and biking nature trails
  • Golf courses
  • Game and entertainment facilities
  • Fitness facilities
  • Malls and shopping centres
  • Onsite medical facilities
The term "retirement community" tends to be used quite broadly, and can differ in terms of the care and support available to residents. Certain retirement communities are suited to active adults, others are catered to adults who require onsite medical and health care facilities, and some communities are geared towards those seniors who are looking for an extremely supportive environment with professional nursing care around the clock.


We must take our time, learn about the options available to us, and think about what would best suit the individual making the move.  This will result in a sound decision that makes sense in the short and long term.
