Quality of Life Planning- Finding The Support You Need, When You Need It!

You may know someone who may benefit from more support, less isolation, and greater access to support, nutrition and joy.

Feel welcome to reach out, as we can provide insight, resources and navigation.

Loneliness can be a very good reason to consider retirement living.

Brochures & websites will list all the amenities and services, but what many do not realize until after they have moved in, are the friendships formed, sense of belonging, safety, nutritious & hydration improvements and access to support such as attending physician, foot care, mobile dentist & many supportive options that ensure optimal wellness.

 

Life in Guildford Seniors Village makes life’s daily needs & supports easier to access, when travel & covid-19 restrictions affect daily life.

Consider…do you know we offer Mini-Vacations a.ka. Respite Reservations?

A wonderful way to experience one’s own apartment, home cooked dining, daily housekeeping & laundry, cable service and an array of wellness support as needed.
