What to Look for in a Retirement Residence
Q – My husband and I are both in our 70s, but are very young at heart, healthy, active and extremely independent. We plan to sell our family home in the near future and hope to settle in a place where we can stay as we age. My husband feels that it is too early to live in a senior’s residence. What are the benefits of moving into a retirement residence at our age, and what should we look for?
A – There are many things to consider when looking for that special place that will meet all the requirements that both you, and your husband, are looking for.
Health & Wellness
We all want to remain in good health, and feel our best – physically, mentally and socially. At Evergreen Retirement, a highly-skilled group of healthcare professionals are available 24/7 – if required.
For many of us, the kitchen was always the heart of the home. Our meals are made with fresh, local ingredients, and are prepared from scratch by a professionally trained culinary team. We take care of everything so that you can enjoy your time with friends and family – we’re at your service.
Safety & Security
At Evergreen Retirement, our 24-hour concierge and 24-hour emergency response system are just the beginning. All of our staff are trained in specific safety and security procedures.
You are surrounded by people who genuinely care about your well-being and peace of mind.
It’s all about individual preferences. You can be as active and as social as you choose to be. We offer daily recreational activities and wellness programs, in addition to live music twice a week. Transportation to medical appointments and shopping excursions, as well as trips to Stratford, the Shaw Festival, Ripley’s Aquarium, boat cruises, etc., are all chauffeured by Evergreen’s personal van/bus driver.
There are no shortage of things to do at Evergreen Retirement to keep you stimulated and having fun. Get a team together for the on-site, five-pin bowling alley, play a game of bridge, join a walking club, exercise in the pool, or treat yourself to a spa day at Sterling Silver Spa & Salon. As the day winds down, relax with friends for a tea or coffee in our cafe, or enjoy a cocktail during happy hour in Evergreen’s Windows Bar, while listening to live music.
Located in a gorgeous setting in Mississauga, Evergreen Retirement is conveniently located with easy access to Toronto, all major highways and the airport, as well as a plethora of shopping and dining options. This well-appointed retirement community offers a full range of lifestyle alternatives. You can choose to be completely independent, independent with assistance or, if required, assisted living – all in a secure environment. With these types of options, it makes Evergreen the ideal choice for aging in place in an inspired, senior living environment.
