What is Life Care?

Balanced living means having Life Care in the equation.

To be licensed as a Life Plan Community, it’s necessary to offer progressive levels of care. But not every community that offers care services also offers a Life Care contract. The Type A Life Care contract guarantees the care you need, for as long as you need it, at rates similar to what you’d pay in Independent Living. It’s considered the gold standard senior living healthcare contract. If you should need Assisted Living, Senior Rehabilitation, Memory Care or Skilled Nursing Care, you’ll receive these services at about the same monthly fee you’d pay in Independent Living.

The advantages of Life Care at Jefferson’s Ferry.

By choosing Life Care now, you’ll know who will provide your care in the future. You won’t have to search for care when you need it. You’ll know what it will cost — something that just isn’t possible without a Life Care contract. That’s because the costs associated with long-term care are continually rising. By requiring a one-time entrance fee, Life Care locks in a discounted rate for care services that remains predictable over time. If you need to change to an assisted living or skilled nursing residence at some point in the future, your monthly expenses won’t rise significantly.
