How To Select Senior Living Facilities In Toronto

Senior living facilities in Toronto can be tough to locate and it can be especially difficult for those who have specific needs that must be addressed. We understand these challenges and that's why we are here to offer a helpful how to guide for finding the right senior living residence for your Toronto loved one.

The following pointers are very helpful during the process of narrowing down your selections and by reading on to learn more, you can avoid the usual pitfalls that keep you from making the best possible senior living choice in the Toronto region.

Speak With Multiple Facilities

There is nothing wrong with comparison shopping at a time like this and we actually recommend it. When it comes to decisions of this magnitude, why would you ever leave yourself open to the possibility of experiencing buyer's remorse? You are going to want to make sure that your loved one is able to live out the rest of the days with total peace and happiness. Taking your time during the selection process is a major part of that.

Speak to as many facilities as possible and don't be shy about scheduling as many consultations as it takes to get the decision right. This is not the type of scenario where you can simply ask for a do over when you've made the wrong decision, as most facilities are more than happy to keep your initial deposit and any payments that you have already made should you decide that you've made the wrong choice.

Ask Lots of Questions

This may sound silly to some, but you should definitely have a list of questions prepared when you are in the process of selecting a senior living residence for your loved one in the Toronto region. Sit down with your relative before the meeting process has begun, so that the two of you can prepare a list of questions that addresses each and every concern that you may have about the facility.

The more questions you ask, the more you are able to learn about the facility that you are considering and the easier it becomes to separate the contenders from the pretenders. A top notch facility and their staff is always more than willing to answer all of the questions that you have, while a less than reputable facility tends to be far more standoffish in these instances.

Consider The Staff's Demeanor

When you visit the potential senior living residence, do you get a positive vibe from the staff members? Do they appear to actually care about the residents of the facility, or do they offer you a sense that they are merely going through the motions in order to continue collecting a paycheck every week?

These are questions that need to be answered in as honest of a manner as possible in order for you to be certain of the decision that you are about to make. If the staff's demeanor gives you pause for any reason whatsoever, don't make the mistake of entrusting them with your loved one's care.

“I was perfectly happy in my home - but I came here and everybody was so nice. I thought, what a good idea to give it a try.”
“Just because we’re retired doesn’t mean we’re retired from life. We stay fit, we love the food, and there's plenty for us to do out in the community. It's a great life, and the people here are wonderful.“
“The thing I value most is that I have my independence, and I get to choose what I want to do with my time. There are so many opportunities here, and I make sure I take advantage of them.”
“There's so many things that you're offered - food, entertainment, good friends, good accommodation. Lift the phone and you've got everything you want.“
“I just think it's fabulous what they do here at Tapestry.“
"I was facing up to the prospect of living alone and I was already looking, and this place was just going to be developed - they hadn't even turned the sod yet - but I became aware of it. I just liked the looks of what they were going to do and it has turned out to be an excellent choice."
“It's an ideal combination of privacy, or not, as you will. You can live entirely self-sufficiently in your suite with your own kitchen and everything, but when you feel the need for company, it's right there. I've made lots of new friends here. It's ideal.”
