Top Four Reasons A Life Plan Community Is Right For You

The boomer generation has changed what it means to be an older adult. You shop differently, save differently and live differently than any generation before you. So, as you transition into the next chapter of life, consider whether a Life Plan Community might be the right move.

What is a Life Plan Community?

“Life” shows that our communities are about so much more than care; they are about living life to the fullest.

“Plan” captures the unique “safety net” advantages that Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) offer through a continuum of health-related services.

“Community” means connectedness. It’s where “planning” and “living” merge and allow for living life to the fullest.

Life Plan Community is the new category name for Continuing Care Retirement Communities or CCRCs. These residential communities offer more than one level of care on a single campus, have a focus on active lifestyles, and are integrated into the community. At Meth-Wick, you see the Life Plan Community philosophy in action. We have five different styles of living from independent living to skilled nursing care so that when you make the move to Meth-Wick, you will have the care you need no matter what life brings.

  1. Stay independent and in control Meth-Wick offers a variety of condos, apartments and even single-family homes for residents who prefer to live independently. This keeps you in your home longer – where we know you prefer to be.
  2. Protect yourself and your family By putting a plan in place today for the next stage of your life, you relieve your family from decision making during stressful times.
  3. Make a smart financial decision Life Plan Communities typically have an entrance fee and monthly fees. This structure stabilizes costs as you only pay for what you need, when you need it, removing many of the unknowns of retirement planning.
  4. Never move again Moving to Meth-Wick means that you may not have to move again as you or your spouse’s needs change. Resident Connie Proffitt and her husband Russell moved into a condo at Deer Ridge when they came to Meth-Wick. Connie was able to care for her husband and arrange for in-home care from Meth-Wick Home & Health when she needed to run errands or be out of the house for a few hours. Rather than having to move him to assisted living, the couple was able to spend Russell’s last years together in their home.

Over the past several decades, what it means to be an older adult has changed. So, we’ve changed with it. Our Life Plan Community is a place where you can live life on your terms, whatever they may be.
