Are you considering moving into a retirement community in South Surrey or White Rock? Maybe it’s not you trying to make this decision, but a loved one who is concerned about losing their independence and freedom.
Retirement communities with independent living options are a great way for seniors to feel safe and supported, while still maintaining flexible and independent lifestyles. Think of it like a condo rental – just with bonus services like meals and housekeeping that make your life a lot easier.
At Pacific Carlton and Sunnyside Manor Seniors Communities, we strive to provide you with as much independence as you want. Here are a just few ways that we try to provide our residents with freedom and choice:
The freedom to explore new cuisines and activities
The culinary teams at Pacific Carlton and Sunnyside Manor prepare homestyle meals, but they also like to mix it up with special dishes catered to specific holidays or celebrations. Each week residents can choose from a menu of options for each meal, with plenty of cuisine varieties in mind – that means you might even get the chance to try a new culinary experience.
Many retirement communities feature recreational calendars and, with a variety of activities in to choose from, making the move to a retirement community might mean trying out new hobbies or participating in activities you may never have considered before. It’s never too late to find a new passion.
The freedom to make decisions on your retirement living preferences
At Pacific Carlton and Sunnyside Manor, you have the freedom to choose your individual lifestyle preferences. For example, the very first choice you make is which suite you want to live in.
If you feel more comfortable having a separate living area from your sleeping space, you might want a one-bedroom suite. If you are a couple downsizing your home, you may consider a two-bedroom suite (fun fact: Pacific Carlton is home to the largest retirement living suites in South Surrey White Rock).
You can also choose to decorate your suite how you want; after all, your furniture and your belongings are what really make a space feel like home.
The freedom to create memories and connections
When you make the decision to live in an independent seniors’ residence, you’re also making the decision to move into a community. And in a community, you get the freedom to create memories and connections with those around you.
– it’s almost impossible not to find someone or something to connect with!
