Residents thankful healthcare is always within reach at Providence Point

Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs), also known as Life Plan Communities, are rapidly growing in popularity, and Providence Point is at the top of the list of CCRCs offering LifeCare, with lifelong benefits and an enriching environment for seniors. CCRCs differ from other retirement living options because they offer a continuum of housing and care, under an agreement that works similar to long-term care insurance.

CCRCs typically offer at least three levels of care: residential living (independent), assisted living (personal care), and nursing care. When you join the community, you gain access to all of the various levels of care and living available. At Providence Point, those levels are: personal careskilled nursing care, short- and long-term rehabilitation, and memory support. If needed, the LifeCare resident has access to these services at greatly discounted prices. 

As today’s active baby boomers look for ways to simplify and reduce the time-consuming responsibilities of home maintenance, CCRCs like Providence Point are an attractive alternative. Providence Point provides access to a fulfilling lifestyle with great amenities including access to a beautiful fitness center, five dining venues, a heated pool, clubs, indoor parking, fitness center, exercise classes, and much more.

As boomers start looking at retirement living options, they also begin to understand the value of having access to quality healthcare. Residents often report the financial shock they have experienced due to a past medical episode. They remember being caught off-guard by the burden of caring for a spouse, parent or other family member. There are many misperceptions about how health insurance covers the costs for assisted living and long-term care. Life Plan Communities, especially those with LifeCare agreements, address all of these issues. 

Other characteristics people look for and like Providence Point for are that services are available under one roof, and there is indoor underground parking for each apartment residence. And, for today’s particular consumer, all healthcare residences are large, private suites with European-style bathrooms and walk-in showers, they are available directly from their home or following a hospital stay, and they offer the same warm, comforting environment they find in the independent living residences.
