When Gustavo began visiting Chartwell Churchill House Retirement Community as a musical performer, he never imagined it might one day become his home too.
“I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the kind of care and warm friendship offered by the caregivers and staff to residents,” he explains. “I am planning to apply to become a permanent resident…I am sure that will be my best option for my retirement place.”
There’s no denying that the pandemic will have long-lasting effects on the world. However, one positive outcome now that things are gradually returning to ‘normal’ is that older adults who have put off downsizing or seeking alternative living arrangements can now reevaluate their needs.
For many seniors, exchanging time spent on property and home maintenance with more opportunities to meet new people, travel, and pursue other interests is appealing, especially after the last two years.
A worry-free lifestyle, paired with reliable and consistent access to trained and friendly staff, is a significant benefit of independent living in a retirement residence setting for seniors.
While touring Chartwell Churchill House with her husband, Elizabeth was struck by just how supportive staff really were.
“The manager whom we met was very welcoming, knowledgeable and attentive,” she describes. “In fact, all the staff we encountered appeared friendly and helpful. A very warm atmosphere.”
