The Benefits of Moving to a Life Plan Community

The Benefits of Moving to a Life Plan Community

If you’re considering a move from your current home into a senior living community, there are many options out there for you to choose from. A type of community for older adults that’s increasing in popularity is called a Life Plan Community, also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community, or CCRC.

In an award-winning senior living community like Jefferson’s Ferry, you’re able to live your best life every day because you have a high-quality living space and access to premium services and amenities. With that, you also have the benefit of knowing there’s a plan in place if your needs should ever change.

What Is a Life Plan Community?

A Life Plan Community provides you with exactly what you need at this stage of your life: a plan. You can seamlessly transition from total independence to various levels of care if your needs change throughout your life. With a plan in place from the start, you can relax and enjoy your days, knowing your future is secured.


A Life Plan Community is a type of senior living community that gives today’s seniors what they’re looking for at this stage of living life: freedom. You’ll have freedom from home maintenance, from yardwork, and from taking time for grocery shopping, cooking, and some other basic chores if you choose. Your time is yours to spend as you like. And with the organized groups and events, you’ll never run out of fun ways to live your independent, healthy and active lifestyle.

Peace of Mind

Peace of mind comes with knowing you can transition from independent living to assisted living,skilled nursing or memory care, without having to move from one community to another. And this peace of mind extends to your loved ones as well. The children of older adults will feel good knowing all their parents’ healthcare needs will be met, no matter what health issues may arise.

Varying Levels of Care

Some older adults may find they’re living with a spouse who needs a different level of care than they do. One spouse might be nearly or totally independent and living an active lifestyle, while the other may need skilled nursing or memory care.

A Life Plan Community can offer the perfect solution because the various levels of care are offered in the same community. If one spouse requires more healthcare services, the other won’t have to act as the primary caregiver, or be responsible for frequent trips for care. The couple can be living life with the peace of mind of knowing their individual needs are always being met while living just steps away from each other.

A Predictable Cost of Living

Today’s seniors are able to benefit from a great service a Life Plan Community provides — a predictable cost of living. Having an uncertain financial future can put immense stress on older adults, which can in turn affect their health, longevity, and day-to-day quality of life. Imagine having that burden lifted from you!

At Jefferson’s Ferry, life for our residents can transition from total independence to increased levels of care, while monthly fees remain predictable over time. The services and amenities, dining, fitness programs, social activities and organized events help keep life active and fun. And if the time comes  that higher levels of care become necessary, your plan is already in place. There are no negative financial surprises to worry about.

For older adults, financial peace of mind is so important, and a Life Plan Community can provide that for you.
