Planning a Tour

A tour is the best way to experience a place for yourself and gain the knowledge you need to make a decision about a big move. However, it is easy to get caught up in exploring, and forget to ask some key questions. Here are some tips to help you out:

Tour Tips

  • Take a minute to talk to some Residents
  • What is a typical day like?
  • Are meals well prepared?
  • Is the building attractive and homelike?
  • Is there accessible public transportation?
  • Is the noise level appropriate?
  • Is there medical and practical assistance in place?
  • Are regular exercise sessions offered?
  • Is there a fitness area with equipment?
  • How much privacy will you have?
  • How can you keep belongings secure?
  • Are you allowed to bring your own furniture and will it fit?
  • Is there a guest suite available for visitors?

More helpful questions and a checklist are also available through an eBook produced by Comfort Life: The Ultimate Retirement Tour Checklist. We look forward to hosting you and helping you make an informed decision on your new home.
