Together forever: senior living for couples
Why should couples who have been married or together for many years need to live separate lives, just because one partner new needs more care?
It’s one of the reasons so many couples struggle on in their own homes long after it is suitable for their needs, rather than moving to a more comfortable, less stressful home in a senior living communities.
Senior living for couples
At The Manor Villages in Canada, we know that our community is enriched by couples who continue to share many happy years together, enjoying life to the full, without the worry of home maintenance, utility bills and the high costs of professional home care.
So, we design our spacious apartments and senior living suites in Calgary and London ON with couples firmly in mind. Take, for example, our elegant independent living community at Garrison Woods in Calgary.
- The Brookline suite has a large master bedroom with plenty of storage and a sunny window sitting area. There’s also a spacious lounge and dining area, so couples can have their own space when they need it, and be together when they don’t!
- The two bedroom two bathroom Helmsly apartment is ideal for couples with differing care requirements, allowing both to have their own bathroom and bedroom as well as a lovely central lounge and dining room.
A community on your doorstep
Whichever independent living accommodation couples choose, just outside their front door are the facilities, events, outings and friendships of an active senior living community. Couples can meet friends and invite family to join them for meals in the Medallion dining room. They can join in favourite activities together or ‘do their own thing’, knowing that the other half will be safe, looked after and enjoying themselves too.
Most of all, our Garrison Woods Residents know that help and support is always at hand, from apartment maintenance and linen services, to expert healthcare coordinated by the Health and Wellness team.
A home for life
At The Manor Village we offer the reassurance that as their health requirements change, our Residents can continue to live in familiar surroundings. If one partner needs extra care, they can move from Independent Living to Assisted Living, or to Enhanced Care as required.
Our Hearts Memory Care
Some of our communities include a Our Hearts Memory Care. This is a supportive, specialist level of care for seniors with memory impairment that require ongoing guidance, such as those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
So, if one partner develops Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, they can simply become resident in the Our Hearts Memory Care neighbourhood. The couple can continue to live under the same roof, in familiar surroundings and without having to move to a new location. They can enjoy the same friendships and facilities as before, but with the peace of mind provided by the Our Hearts level of specialist care.
