Choosing the Right Type of Living For You

Choosing the right care can seem like a daunting task, and there are many unknowns to deal with. But the team at Optima Living can help provide some guidance.

Independent Living 

Independent living is for seniors who are able to live on their own, but want the convenience of community living.

Assisted Living 

Assisted living is Independent living with supports available if needed, such as the provision of inclusive meals and housekeeping. It is home-like care that provides personal and medical assistance for seniors while prioritizing their independence. 

Supportive Living

Supportive living provides accommodation in a home-like setting, where people can remain as independent as possible. They have access to accommodation and services that meet their ever-changing needs.

Long-Term Care

Long-term care residences offer 24/7 care by Registered Nurses, as well as activities, medical, dietary, and pharmaceutical services. They may also provide services to help with everyday tasks such as bathing, dressing, and eating.

Memory Care

Memory Care is a form of specialized care that caters to residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementias and memory concerns. The Optima Living Memory Care Neighbourhoods, such as the one in Aster Gardens, are shaped by the Optima Living Memory Care Program which draws on experience, clinical best practice, and evidence-informed research.
