How Much Do Retirement Communities Cost in Mississauga?
Sunday Aug 15th, 2021
In Canada, we are very fortunate to have access to many amazing retirement communities that offer residents the best that life has to offer. The cost of these communities varies and depends on a number of factors, including its size, location, accommodations, the type of community and the number of amenities.
According to Comfort Life, Ontario has the widest range of costs for retirement homes, including the most affordable and most expensive rates across the country. Retirement home costs average $3,038 per month in Ontario with many retirement homes covering a wide range of specialized needs and forms of care. In Mississauga, the average monthly rent is $3,150, according to a Comfort Life client survey in 2019, while Toronto is slightly more at $4,050 per month.
These monthly costs typically include three meals a day, utilities, on-site medical services and a registered nurse. However, for some communities with more amenities and services, you can expect to pay more.
If you are considering transitioning to a retirement community, it’s best to visit a number of residences to see firsthand what they offer in terms of accommodations, services, care options and amenities, and to learn more about the associated costs. Some even offer overnight stays for up to a week, which allows you to experience what life is like in a retirement community.
