Should I STAY or should I GO?

February 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO — Solva Seniors Living presentation at the Kanata Seniors Centre on Thursday, February 22nd from 1-2:30pm

Join Seniors Housing expert and Executive Director of Solva Senior Living, Caroline Inman as she explores the options, pros and cons of aging at home or moving to supported accommodations.

Company Background:
Solva offers a truly unbiased free counseling program with a team of qualified professionals from the retirement, nursing and eldercare sectors to provide the very best in knowledge and experience to seniors. Solva is completely independent of any one provider. They represent seniors, not the retirement home or senior living provider.

Is it time to move:

  • The house is growing colder, you worry about when help with arrive to repair your furnace!
  • You are bruised from a fall on the icy front path
  • Are your children right when they say you would be safer in a retirement home
  • Has the upkeep of your home become a greater burden

There is no single answer about the right time or right age to consider retirement living, it depends on the individual. For most people the decision is associated with some type of life change, usually because of their own or their spouse’s increased care needs; the growing problem of household upkeep, or feeling isolated.

Presentation:
Learn why people have to move as opposed to want to move and how you can best plan to remain in the proverbial “driver’s seat”.
