New Year, New Lifestyle: When Is the Right Time to Move to a Life Plan Community?

The new year is finally here, and with it comes the desire for fresh new starts, goals to be achieved and often, the craving for simplicity. For many seniors, this usually means New Year’s resolutions consist of getting involved in something they love, picking back up on that hobby they’ve long forgotten, increasing travel or even searching for a simpler, more carefree retirement lifestyle that lessens their worries and enriches their lives.

“Residents at The Estates once had the same resolution,” says Jeanie Tini, Director of Marketing and Sales at The Estates at Carpenters, a Life Plan Community in Lakeland, Florida. “They simply wanted to enjoy a worry-free lifestyle full of everything they wanted, with access to everything they could potentially need at any point in time. Because we are a Life Plan Community offering a Lifecare contract, our residents can have everything they need and more – including peace of mind if health changes with health care on site, financial security with tax benefits and protection from rising health care costs. The biggest problem many seniors face is knowing when the time is right to move to a Life Plan Community. While the answer may not be the same for everyone, it often comes down to how long you’d like to enjoy this type of lifestyle. The sooner you move, the sooner you can start enjoying the wide range of amenities we offer.”

When to Move to a Life Plan Community

Many times, seniors consider making a move when a health need arise; however, the best time is really before a health crisis occurs. Don’t wait until your health needs change … start now when you can take advantage of the carefree, uncompromised lifestyle you deserve. Here are some tips on when it may be a good time to make the move.

  • You’re ready for complete peace of mind. With a Lifecare contract, you can experience complete peace of mind knowing that should your needs ever change, we are able to meet them all on site – at the same monthly fee you’re accustomed to in independent living.
     
  • You desire days full of social activities. Each day at The Estates, you can enjoy an array of social events, clubs and classes, exciting activities and day trips. There’s always someone to do something with, talk to or learn something new with.
     
  • If you want freedom from the responsibilities of daily life. If housekeeping, yardwork and home maintenance are taking up a lot of your free time, and you feel like you’d be happier if you didn’t need to worry about these things, The Estates could help. Here, you don’t need to worry about any of the responsibilities of home maintenance because we take care of all of it for you. We can also clean your home, cook for you, drive you to appointments and more so you can live carefree.
     
  • You want to secure your financial assets. Many people tend to believe that a Life Plan Community is expensive when compared to the cost of owning a home; however, this isn’t the case. Try adding up the costs of homeownership and comparing it to the cost of The Estates. Many often find that the costs are drastically decreased. Not only this, but when compared to the cost of future care and the instability of future care cost increases, you may actually save!

If you’re considering a Lifecare community, don’t wait until you need it. Instead, enjoy it until you need future care. For more information, contact us today. We would be happy to share more about our lifestyle with you and show you all the ways we can make your new year great! Contact us today at 863-279-4503.
