When it comes to retirement living, you’ll have many decisions to make in planning for your future – Should you move to a retirement community? How should you spend your savings? Should you buy long-term care insurance? What kind of retirement community could be right for you? The options sometimes seem endless. But, what if there was a retirement living option that could satisfy many of your current and future retirement needs?
Consider the benefits of a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), also known as a Life Plan Community. A CCRC is a unique type of retirement community that offers seniors multiple levels of healthcare services. At The Knolls, a CCRC located in Westchester County, we offer assisted living, skilled nursing, and sub-acute services, in addition to independent living. The Knolls is perfect for anyone who is looking to secure their future, and make the most of their retirement.
The Value of a CCRC Contract
CCRCs offer several different contract types, so you can select the agreement that works best for your financial and healthcare needs. Whether or not you have long-term care insurance, there is a CCRC agreement for you. The Knolls offers both a Fee-for-Service as well as a Modified Fee-for-Service agreement, to easily meet your financial needs and provide you with comprehensive coverage. Some communities offer a Life Care contract, generally at a higher cost.
As you age in place at a CCRC like The Knolls, and as your needs change, you’ll have priority access to each level of healthcare, without having to move to a new community. Independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing services are available to you, right on campus. The terms of care are clearly outlined in your agreement, ensuring your care under any circumstances.
Additionally, with your CCRC contract, you’ll have a monthly package of services and amenities that go above and beyond your expectations. Communities typically offer swimming pools and wellness centers, restaurant-style dining, housekeeping, home maintenance, landscaping and much more, all included in a monthly package. Imagine paying for each of these services or memberships in your current house! At The Knolls, all of these exceptional services are included.
More than a Monetary Value
A CCRC contract and continuum of care means more than just a monetary benefit. You and your family also get peace of mind, knowing that everything will be taken care of in the event of an emergency or crisis.
There are plenty of social benefits, too. At The Knolls you’ll be warmly welcomed by an entire community of people who share many of your values and interests. Explore the Art Studio, get involved in committees, enjoy stimulating conversations over a sumptuous meal prepared in our dining room, sign up for a trip to a local museum, concert or movie, without the hassle of driving and parking.
