When it’s time for you to decide where you want to spend your golden years and where you want to spend the years of your retirement, you have many options to choose from. “For a large number of active older adults, downsizing and moving into a senior living lifestyle is the answer, even as they move before they need it,” says Jeanie Tini, Director of Marketing and Sales at The Estates at Carpenters, a Life Plan Community in Lakeland, FL, that offers Lifecare.
“Today’s older adults understand that a worry-free, carefree and maintenance-free existence in a Life Plan Community can make their retirement years better than they ever imagined,” Jeanie explains. “Active, healthy and adventurous active older adults will discover that Lifecare meets their current and future needs in so many ways that help them achieve their goals today and tomorrow.”
One of the biggest ways that Lifecare offers peace of mind, says Jeanie, is by protecting older individuals from growing long-term care costs. This provides many retirees with the opportunity to preserve their financial assets and give everyone in their family peace of mind.
“When you choose The Estates as our home, you know you’ll always have a home with us, no matter what happens in the future,” Jeanie says.
Here are several other reasons why Lifecare provides peace of mind now and in the future to retirees and their loved ones.
- Worry-free, carefree living.
One of the most significant benefits of Lifecare is the resort-style lifestyle residents enjoy. Many people who move to a Lifeplan Community say that it’s like living at a resort that they never have to leave. These communities handle all the maintenance and chores, allowing residents to say goodbye to things like lawn care, home repairs, housekeeping and even cooking. Other perks are also included in the monthly fee like certain utilities, scheduled transportation and activities (just to name a few).
- An instant sense of community.
Many active older adults can become lonely as friends and family move away or as health issues make it harder for them to get out and about. At a community like The Estates, however, residents find themselves surrounded by an instant community of like-minded peers who are looking for the same excitement and opportunities. Lifecare provides a fantastic social scene, instant friendships and a wide variety of activities – while still allowing one to live in a private, personal home.
- Health care for a lifetime, no matter what.
Even if you’re healthy and active today, that doesn’t mean that you’ll always stay that way. Lifecare provides peace of mind that individuals will have “forever homes” in their community, no matter how health needs may change. Life Plan Communities provide the entire spectrum of senior care on property so that no matter what, residents will always be able to live “at home” while still receiving the care they need.
- A focus on aging well.
Aging doesn’t just encompass the number of years you live. It also includes your lifestyle, your diet and everything else that goes into a well-balanced lifestyle. Lifecare is designed to help active older adults live well now and in the future. From wellness programs to healthy menus to engaging activities and more, there are myriad ways for older adults to become and remain healthy.
- 24/7 security and safety.
Older adults living on their own may not feel as safe and secure as possible. Lifecare provides around-the-clock professionals, team members, nurses and staff who can help at a moment’s notice if a resident has an emergency or just needs a little extra care. Security also includes maintenance staff, secured entrances and exits, emergency response systems, safety features like pull bars and alarms, and much, much more.
- Complete peace of mind.
Ultimately, all these benefits (and more) come together to result in complete peace of mind for residents, family members and loved ones. What’s more secure and happy than knowing you’re in a home you love and will always receive the care you need? We think that spells happiness pretty completely – because it means that you’re able to enjoy your life to the fullest, now and in the future, no matter what. What could be more meaningful and wonderful than that?
