How to choose the right Barrhaven retirement home for your needs
Taking a tour is a great way to get the first-hand experience of what it’s really like to live in a retirement residence. But figuring out whether it’s the right fit requires an assertive attitude and a curious mind. In other words, ask lots of questions, and keep an open mind. We’re here to show you around. But remember, you’re in charge.
What are your first impressions?
The mood, the staff, the residents – what’s the feel? Is the residence well established with experienced staff? Is it in a quiet or noise-free area? Has it recently been renovated to contain the latest amenities? If it’s going to be home, then it must feel welcoming and warm, a place in which you could imagine yourself living.
What’s the food like?
Flexible meal times, freshly prepared food and multiple dining options make a big difference. Make a meal part of your tour.
How’s the neighbourhood?
Finding the right fit is also about finding the right neighbourhood. Cafés, restaurants, parks, community centers, and local shops make a vibrant community.
How easy is it to get around?
You’re going to want to get around, whether it’s by car, bus, bike or foot. Prince Of Wales is conveniently located with transportation options or services right at your doorstep.
Are there any classes I can take? What about volunteering?
From art to yoga to special workshops, there’s always something going on. And if volunteering strikes your fancy, there are lots of ways to get involved, either within the residence or the larger community.
Will I have to move if my needs change?
First priority is making sure all of your needs and wants are met, and if they happen to change we’ll do everything we can to keep you healthy and happy, right here.
