A look at three of the most popular benefits
These are just some of the glowing reviews we hear all the time from residents of Life Plan Communities, also known as Continuing Care Retirement Communities or CCRCs. They’ve discovered a lifestyle that frees them from the hassles of chores and home maintenance; provides a built-in social network; offers abundant opportunities to learn, socialize and pursue wellness in all its many dimensions; and comes with a priceless sense of security and peace of mind. Let’s take a look at three of the many things people tell us they love about living in a Life Plan Community.
- It’s a truly maintenance-free lifestyle.
When you live at a Life Plan Community, you’ll never have to worry about an appliance going on the blink, a lawn that needs to be mowed, a house that needs to be cleaned, or anything else that currently ends up on your homeowner to-do list. In fact, you’ll never even have to change a lightbulb. That’s because Life Plan Communities take care of all interior and exterior home maintenance, provide housekeeping services, dining plans, 24-hour security, and so much more. Maintenance-free really is everything it’s cracked up to be. Of course, if you enjoy gardening, many communities have resident garden spaces where you can grow your favorite produce or flowers. And if you enjoy cooking, your independent living residence will include a full kitchen, so you’re always free to prepare a meal or snack when you want to.
- There’s always something to do and friends to do it with.
Life Plan Communities offer a wide array of activities and events to enjoy on campus, as well as frequent planned daytrips to places of interest such as museums, theaters, botanical gardens and more. You’ll likely find classes and book clubs, hobby and discussion groups, theater or choral groups, and opportunities to volunteer within the community and beyond. And if you don’t find a group or club you were hoping for, most communities are happy to assist you in starting one.
Life Plan Communities are also designed to empower you to pursue wellness in all its dimensions so, of course, you’ll have access to fitness centers, group exercise classes, and even outdoor walking trails. You’re likely to find that your lifestyle is even healthier and more active than it was when you were living in your home. And since Life Plan Communities are generally made up of adults age 62 and better, you’ll have a built-in social network of peers who share your desire to continue living a vibrant, active life, and who enjoy eating meals and participating in activities together. You’ll only be alone when you want to be.
- Priceless security and peace of mind — for you and your family.
One of the biggest benefits of choosing a Life Plan Community is the presence of health care services right on campus. If you ever need assisted living, short-term rehabilitation or skilled nursing care, you’ll be able to get the care you need right in the community you’ve come to call home. And with a Life Care plan, you’ll have financial security in knowing your monthly fees will remain virtually the same no matter what level of living you need. In short, a Life Plan Community offers a simple way to put a secure plan in place for your future that also provides priceless peace of mind for you and your family.
