For many, choosing to downsize to a retirement residence and leaving behind the family home might also mean a change in neighbourhoods. Along with the decluttering and moving across town or perhaps even across the country, you might also find your list of friends downsized too. In this instance, it might be time to try Amintro – a wonderful tool anyone can use and that includes retirement residents in residence – Yes, Amintro is for you too!

Use Amintro to connect with others!

A retirement residence provides the perfect downsizing opportunity for savvy seniors; those interested in staying active, engaged and involved, but who don’t want the work that’s involved with homeownership. A retirement residence is a great place to make new friends amongst new neighbors and Amintro is the ideal tool to help facilitate this process. Here’s why. Amintro is a completely FREE social platform specifically designed for those 50+ folks who still have a lot of life left to live. And – living life with friends is just more fun! Using Amintro is a great way to connect with like-minded individuals who share the same common interests, perhaps the same or similar cultural background as you and who find themselves in a new stage of life, looking to create a new sense of community around them. Encouraging residents to introduce Amintro into their retirement home, means anyone can join in. Amintro helps you to “meet” others online, determining what you all have in common. That way, when it’s time to leave your personal space and head for the common area – you’ve already got “conversation starter” material for introducing yourself to your new neighbors! There is perhaps no better time than now, during our current pandemic crisis where many of us are self-isolating, to get to know your fellow retirement residence community members online.

Sandwich generation? We’re talking to you too!

Registering for Amintro is fast, easy and did we mention – free! The platform itself is simple to navigate and is full of great ideas including: tips and tools on a variety of topics and a number of articles on living life, travelling, money management, wellness, work-life balance and sharing bucket list adventures. Right now, Amintro is a fantastic way to stay connected and make new friends – while we all practice safe physical distancing. For those readers who might find themselves part of the “sandwich generation,” caring for both parents and kids, Amintro is something you also might like to register for. It’s a way to stay in touch with issues impacting seniors or to suggest your parents use as a way to stay in touch with what’s going on in the world. You might even want to chat with the social director at your parents’ retirement residence, letting them know about Amintro and how our easy online tool will support them in their efforts to further foster that sense of “community” within the residence.
