Heritage Life: Premier Retirement Living

Share:

Rendering02

Heritage Life Retirement Living (HLRL) is a unique and affordable life lease retirement residence being constructed in the heart of the bustling Town of Niverville, just 20 minutes south of Winnipeg. Though retirement living projects are not new, HLRL boasts a philosophy and model that few others offer.

The philosophy: to provide an affordable financing structure aimed to assist in an easy, financially manageable transition. The model: to create a gathering place for the entire community that includes a full range of aging-in-place amenities.

This life lease residence, the crowning phase of the Niverville Heritage Centre campus, will sit on a nine-acre parcel of developed land. The campus is a 15-year community dream and currently offers a full range of aging-in-place housing options, including an assisted living and supportive housing (Niverville Credit Union Manor) and the Heritage Life Personal Care Home.

The campus also includes a primary health care centre, a medical clinic with three full-time doctors, a childcare centre, a dental centre, and a hair salon. Hespeler’s Cookhouse and Tavern, a timber frame atrium and a banquet/event centre serve as community gathering places for all ages. Every aspect of this amazing campus is under one roof and is accessible to people of all mobility levels. The heart of the campus grounds are adorned with the volunteer-run Niverville Heritage Gardens, cultivated and enjoyed by young and old alike.

The project caters mainly to senior adults (55-plus). It will provide individuals with smaller, more manageable housing options than a full-sized home. Residents will have a lifetime right to occupy a unit, with the assurance that their neighbours will be in the same age category.

HLRL offers six different suite designs ranging in size of 741 square feet to over 1,600 square feet, each with its own balcony and optional sunroom. Included in the cost, residents will have access to heated underground parking and a storage locker. The building will include a large common area for social gatherings, with on-site catering services available, a workshop for hobbyists, a craft and games area, lounges, and a fitness centre. Two hotel-style suites will be available to the residents and community at large. Optional services will include housekeeping, meal, and laundry services.

Residents will also have convenient access to outdoor walkways and gardens, as well as adult day programs. Community businesses offer grocery and prescription delivery.

Two buy-in options are available. The guaranteed buyback option allows buyers to leverage their home equity against a suite with no need to later list or sell the property upon departure. The equity-based option allows for full upfront payment, so the owner can sell the suite and gain potential equity from it.

Anticipated occupancy is set for February 2017.
