From nurses and care aids to fellow residents and activities that provide fulfillment each day, retirement living provides instant friendship to seniors who might otherwise have felt the burden of living alone.

Retirement living opens doors to friendship and community

‘Campus of care’ serves you now, and as your care needs change

There are many wonderful benefits to retirement living, especially around the holiday season. The holidays are a great time of year to relax, unwind and connect with family and friends. However, it can also be a difficult time for those living on their own.

According to Statistic Canada, as many as 1.4 million Canadian seniors report feeling lonely, and studies are showing that loneliness can negatively affect both physical and mental health.

Regardless of the level of care, retirement living provides opportunities for interaction at every corner. From nurses to care aids to fellow residents and activities that provide fulfillment each day, retirement living provides instant friendship to seniors who might otherwise have felt the burden of living alone.

Retirement communities like Rosemary Heights Seniors Village acknowledge the important role seniors play in our communities and the need to keep them integrated in society. It’s a community that provides a campus-of-care that subscribes to a three-tiered pillar approach to care: Independent Living, Assisted Living and Complex Care.

Located in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland, Rosemary Heights campus-of-care is what makes the community truly unique in that it allows Surrey residents to stay in a familiar setting as they age or as their level-of-care advances. It provides great comfort to families of residents knowing their loved ones don’t have to relocate to another retirement community if they require a move from one level of care to another. Even couples with different levels of care can find a home together at Rosemary Heights.

Although the move to retirement living can feel like a drastic change for many seniors who are used to their day-to-day routines, the benefits far outweigh the negatives as the change can provide a sense of security, community and constant social opportunities.
