Read on to learn the top reasons to invest in a Lifecare Type A contract at The Estates at Carpenters in Lakeland, FL.
Lifecare guarantees access to higher levels of care at below-market prices.
Seniors who move into a Life Plan Community, also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), often sign a contract known as a Lifecare Type A contract. This grants priority access to all community health services, including assisted living, skilled nursing, and rehabilitation, and this access is guaranteed under a Lifecare Type A contract for life.
The most worry-free, all-inclusive health care solution a senior can obtain is Lifecare. A one-time entrance fee and a monthly service fee covers a variety of amenities, services, and many other maintenance expenses. This ensures they will live in the senior living community and have access to care for life without having to move anywhere else.
At The Estates, our health center is right on site, making it easy to receive care for yourself without needing to leave the campus you love. This is a safe and convenient way to afford care while granting loved ones peace of mind. You will have access to the array of services without fear of unexpected healthcare costs. This is true even in the face of rising health care costs.
Lifecare saves you money in the long run.
The main financial advantage of a Lifecare contract is that it maintains care expenses at known, consistent rates with little to no fluctuation regardless of changes in health. Also, at not-for-profit communities like The Estates, the entrance fee may qualify for a tax dedication as medical expense. The upfront entrance fee is somewhat like “prepaying” for health care because this money aids in covering any medical care you might need in the future, regardless of level of care.
Life Plan Communities with Lifecare take a holistic approach.
The defining characteristic of Lifecare communities is a holistic commitment to resident well-being. Lifecare communities boast a variety of amenities and services, including health programs, gym or fitness center, social events, wholesome dining, wellness programming, and chances for spiritual and religious engagement.
Seniors enjoy all The Estates at Carpenters’ outstanding amenities and services. There are also delicious food options, countless activities catered to their interests, health and wellness classes, excursions, and local event programs.
And keep in mind: With Lifecare, you may rest easy knowing that, whenever you need it, you will have access to medical care. Even better, practically all care costs are included in your monthly charge, making it much simpler for you and your loved ones to plan and manage your finances.
