How You Can Receive Guaranteed Care for Life
You’ve spent your whole life planning and dreaming about your retirement. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could enjoy it without worry? You wouldn't have to stress about running out of money. You knew for certain that you’d never impose on your kids. Well, all of that is possible with a Life Care community.
There’s no other senior living option quite like it. When you join a Life Care CCRC, you’ll receive guaranteed care for the length of your life — even if your financial funds are exhausted through no fault of your own.* So once you move in, you’ll have the assurance and peace of mind that you can remain in that community no matter what happens. You’ll always be able to receive quality care, enjoy many wonderful amenities and services, and live in gorgeous living accommodations.
Another excellent aspect about a Life Care CCRC is that it offers a continuum of care. But what exactly does that mean? Most senior living communities offer only one or two care levels (independent living, assisted living, etc.) But CCRCs typically offer at least three types of care, if not four.
Life Care CCRCs can include any of these levels of care:
- Independent living — where residents live on their own and have access to a wide array of amenities
- Assisted living — staff members provide help with the activities of daily living, such as bathing and dressing
- Memory care — specialized care and resources designed for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia
- Skilled nursing care — skilled medical care often used for rehabilitation or recovery after a surgery
The “Continuum of Care” aspect is so important because if your care needs change in the future, then you can remain in the same community close to friends, enjoying the same amenities and services you already love. Instead of having to move to a completely new community to get the care you need.
*The life care guarantee is subject to the terms & conditions of the Residency Contract.
What is it like at a Life Care community?
Few senior living experiences can compare to what you’d find at a Life Care community. Life Care is designed to be the top of the line retirement experience. From the high-quality services to the comfortable living space, a Life Care CCRC provides a wonderful environment to fully enjoy your retirement.
Many of our Life Care CCRCs are ideally located near spectacular natural attractions. So you could be within driving distance of the beautiful Gulf Coast beaches or the Atlantic Ocean. The campuses of each Life Care CCRC are beautifully designed and well-maintained, so whether you are outside on the lovely landscaped grounds or relaxing inside, you’ll be in a top-notch environment.
During your stay at a Life Care CCRC, you’ll live in a wonderful apartment equipped with many excellent features. Typically you’ll have a range of floorplans to choose from, so you can select your ideal living space.
How will I spend my time?
Each day you get to choose how to spend your time. And there are endless ways to do so. Every one of our CCRCs features a unique activity calendar designed specifically for residents. From fitness classes and dance lessons to happy hours and live performances — there are plenty of opportunities to make memories, indulge your passions, and socialize with other residents. Each CCRC also offers plenty of community clubs, volunteer activities, and off-site adventures — just to name a few.
In addition to all these activities, you’ll have at your fingertips a wide selection of amenities to take advantage of. The type of amenities will vary among CCRCs but many common ones include a swimming pool, fitness center, beauty salon, game room with billiards table, and cafe or bistro. So whether you want to work on your novel at the coffee shop, play a round of pool, or go for a swim — you’ll have all that available to you within walking distance.
And we haven’t even mentioned the services! Our high-class services help you make the most of your time at a CCRC. If you don’t feel like cooking or aren’t interested in doing laundry — our CCRCs feature many services like dining, housekeeping, transportation, concierge, laundry and more! That way you can spend more time doing what you love, and we handle the rest.
