DSC_1143 (1) (1) (1)When approaching retirement age there are many questions about what comes next. For those planning on moving into a senior living community, new options are becoming available in terms of what those communities may look like and the increased services that are included. The concept of a Life Plan Community has become increasingly popular especially for older adults who are active and want to make the most of their retirement. To break it down, a Life Plan Community focuses on 3 key elements:
  1. Offering multiple levels of care all on one campus
  2. Promoting an overall active lifestyle and environment, and focusing on health and wellness
  3. Being an active member of the community, giving back and participating in social events

The first element mentions multiple levels of care on one campus, this attracts many DSC_1099people because it allows residents to stay in one place for the rest of their lives. Residents who develop chronic illnesses are able to remain on campus and in a safe and familiar environment to them and this can create a level of comfort that makes aging much easier. Collington offers an all-inclusive plan that provides unlimited access to nursing care so when the time comes where you need care, it will be at no additional cost to you.

 

The last two elements go hand in hand. Life Plan Communities encourage freedom for their residents, residents are able to come and go as they please. The campus offers opportunities for wellness and activity and strongly encourages socialization through its many clubs and committees. The intentions of Life Plan Communities is to provide patient centered care. Communities like Collington are able to offer the security of a plan for the future while focusing on the individual person and where they are in each stage of their life.
