The pursuit of happiness and health takes center stage in our senior years. For many, this path leads to continuing care retirement communities or CCRCs that offer Life Care, a unique way to pay for senior living options that seamlessly blends the desire for carefree living and long-term financial stability.
Wondering if this lifestyle could be right for you? Here’s what you need to know about Life Care and the myriad benefits that Life Care communities offer.
Discover a More Active and Engaged Lifestyle
A core benefit of a CCRC is its focus on promoting an active and engaging lifestyle. Senior living communities offer many social, cultural, and recreational activities catering to varied interests and abilities.
From art classes and fitness programs to social clubs and educational opportunities, you’ll have countless chances to rediscover old hobbies, learn new skills, and make meaningful connections that can enrich your life. Living fully in this way can play a crucial role in maintaining mental and physical health as you age.
Ensure Easier Access to Health Services (If You Need Them)
One of the defining characteristics of a Life Care community is its comprehensive approach to health services. As a form of CCRC, these communities provide a continuum of care that adapts to the changing needs of residents over time.
Whether it’s assistance with daily activities, rehabilitative services, or skilled nursing care, a Life Care community ensures that residents receive the right level of care at the right time. This seamless transition between different levels of care—all within a familiar environment—provides residents and their families with a sense of security and continuity no matter the future.
Enjoy Less Stress with Maintenance-Free Living
CCRC senior living communities are synonymous with maintenance-free living. Community members can bid farewell to the burdens of home maintenance, yard work, and home repairs. This freedom can remove significant stress from your life, allowing you to focus on the things that matter, like exploring new hobbies, spending time with friends and family, and rediscovering yourself.
Prioritize Your Financial Future
Understanding and planning for future healthcare needs can be daunting. This is where the Life Care community model shines, offering financial security and peace of mind.
With a Life Care contract, you pay an upfront entrance fee and predictable monthly costs based on the contract type you select. In return, you receive housing, amenities, and healthcare services for life—even if you outlive your resources. This arrangement simplifies financial planning while providing a safety net against the unpredictable costs of long-term care, allowing you to enjoy your retirement with greater peace and confidence.
