Isolation and illness issues in seniors’ homes has Calgarians rethinking housing plans

In these tumultuous times, aging in place is more appealing than ever before. Seniors are struggling with the idea of moving into assisted-living or nursing homes. The longer we live with the pandemic, the more we learn about dangers of viruses spreading like wildfire in these centres and how isolated residents feel during periods of quarantine.

Bungalows provide the perfect opportunity for people to transition into new life chapters – easily, safely, and independently. A luxury bungalow is ideal for those looking for a larger one- floor footprint. These homes allow for big, open-concept spaces and seamless flow between living areas, bedrooms and outdoor rooms. When built or renovated with aging at home in mind, bungalows accommodate game changing supports – room for walkers and wheelchairs, curbless showers, easy to reach cabinets and even caregiver accommodations.

These dream homes also allow empty nesters to live life to the fullest, entertaining their families as they age in place and within their current community of friends and neighbours.
