When searching for a retirement lifestyle, there are many things older adults should keep in mind. From what programs a retirement community offers and the dining options they provide to wellness opportunities and the privacy of the apartment homes, there’s truly no shortage of things to think about when considering retirement living options. One thing older adults absolutely shouldn’t worry about, however, is the future. While care may not be at the top of your mind at this moment, no one wants to have a health scare that requires them to leave the community and lifestyle they love. Instead, when thinking about retirement lifestyles, consider a community that offers Lifecare to give you absolute peace of mind – no matter how needs may change.
According to Jeanie Tini, Director of Marketing and Sales at The Estates at Carpenters – a Life Plan Community in Lakeland, Florida – provides this peace of mind for residents every day. “Our residents absolutely love how our lifestyle revolves entirely around them, from the experiences and activities to the flexibility and convenience of Lifecare,” says Jeanie. “Residents can enjoy their days as they choose and be reassured that care will be available if and whenever they need it – right on site from the community they know and trust.”
Lifecare 101: The Basics
- What is Lifecare? Lifecare, according to AARP®, usually offers unlimited assisted living, medical treatment and skilled nursing without the fear of additional charges or needing to move from the community you love. “Health care costs tend to rise drastically as care needs change in assisted living and skilled nursing communities,” says Jeanie. “Lifecare communities give the security of knowing rates won’t change even as care needs begin to rise. Residents who are part of our Lifecare program pay the same monthly rates for those services as they’ve always been paying for independent living,” she adds. This helps with both financial planning and easing the everyday anxiety residents face, freeing up their time and allowing them to enjoy each day as it comes.
- What services does Lifecare at The Estates provide? Residents can rest assured that their care needs will always be met. Offering independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing, as well as short- and long-term rehabilitation, with dedicated care from highly trained professionals available 24 hours a day, a medical director, rehabilitation therapist, wellness and social director and nutritionist on-site, all your needs can be met. Our location is also near the acclaimed Lakeland Regional Medical Center, providing additional peace of mind.
- How much does Lifecare cost? Many Lifecare communities, such as The Estates at Carpenters, have a one-time entrance fee plus a monthly fee, which guarantees a lifetime of care at a predictable cost.
- How does Lifecare protect my financial assets? With regular senior living communities, the cost of future health care may cause savings to deplete quickly; but with a Type A contract, residents are guaranteed unlimited, lifetime access to care with rates that never significantly increase. This translates to substantial savings compared to pay-as-you-go health care options.
