How to Choose
your Retirement Home

A retirement home is much more than an apartment, it is a living space where a range of services facilitate your day-to-day life. A place to meet and entertain; it must also offer human-focused and evolving services, à la carte or included in packages, to meet your needs of today and tomorrow.

Get to Know your Living Environment Options

If you want to stay in an environment with which you are already familiar, or want to stay close to loved ones, Cogir private residences are available almost everywhere in the province of Quebec.

Are you independent and in good health? Or are you an active person who wouldn’t mind a little help? Or do you need specialized assistance? Our accommodation packages are tailored to your pace and needs:

Apartments with à la carte services or a package •

Amenities Included in the Lease

Living in a retirement home means having the freedom to no longer worry about day-to-day chores and several ownership costs. Ask about the amenities and services that will help you enjoy your retirement.

When you add up all the expenses associated with a house or condo, Cogir private residences offer excellent quality-to-price ratio.

  • Maintenance
  • Landscaping and snow removal
  • Electricity
  • Hot water
  • Cable and telephone service
  • Participation in many activities
  • Access to facilities and common areas

Take the time to compare costs based on your income and expenses.

Tax Credit

You may be eligible for a Quebec government tax credit for home support services for seniors aged 70 and over. To find out how muchyou are entitled, contact our quality-of-life consultant team and someone will do the calculations for you.

Facilitation Towards the Residence Life

If you are moving from a rental property to a retirement home, you only need to give two months’ notice to your current landlord. As such, you can benefit from our range of services more quickly and safely.

Des services à la carte pour répondre aux besoins d’aujourd’hui et de demain

Une multitude de services sont disponibles à la résidence, en cas de besoin. Que ce soit pour de l’aide quotidienne ou un souci de santé, l’équipe peut vous accompagner en vous proposant des services adaptés à vos besoins. Des résidences évolutives vous permettront de demeurer dans votre milieu de vie confortable et sécurisant, et ce, même si des soucis de santé surviennent.

Ask the Right Questions

The criteria for choosing a retirement home differ from one person to another. To find a place that suits you, first ask yourself:

  • What services would you like to receive ?

  • What would improve your quality of life ?

  • Would you like access to swings, green or sunny areas or a pool ?

  • What amenities would make you happy: take-out, storage, parking, housekeeping, laundry, public transportation ?

  • How many rooms do you need ?
