When it comes to making decisions about the best independent living option for your future, it’s important to find a community that suits your current lifestyle needs, as well as your future well-being. There is a significant difference between a retirement community and a Life Plan Community — the latter serving as a place where seniors can enjoy an active retirement, a maintenance-free lifestyle, and a continuum of care available should they ever need it. 

What Is Independent Living?

Independent living is ideal for active seniors, generally, 62 and older, who do not need assistance with daily activities, yet enjoy and appreciate the benefits of assistance with routine tasks such as housekeeping, lawn care, dining options, etc. This maintenance-free lifestyle supports their independence with private apartments or homes in a community that encourages an active lifestyle with access to amenities, activities, and services that foster connection, engagement, camaraderie, and more.

What Is a Continuum of Care?

A continuum of care is the benefit and convenience of living in one place that provides access to levels of care needed for various health and lifestyle needs. Also known as a Life Plan Community, residents are afforded a continuum of care and comfort knowing that if their health needs ever change, services are available to accommodate levels of care all within one community — independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and rehabilitation, and memory care.
