The Value of a Life Plan Community

What is a Life Plan Community?

Life Plan Communities are retirement communities with an important added benefit: a continuum of care, which ensures that you can “age in place,” having planned ahead in terms of access to additional services and the cost of long-term care. Think of it as peace of mind if your health care needs change somewhere along the way. 

How Does a Life Plan Community Work?

Joining a Life Plan Community requires an entry fee with an agreement that ensures care and residency for life. While traditionally a Life Plan community can require a big buy-in, Enhanced Living offers a lower entry fee. Clark backs this contract with the promise that you can maintain your residence through the duration of your life, even if your financial resources are depleted through longevity or illness. This also ensures you have access to any future care you may need such as assisted living, memory care or skilled nursing.

The Benefits of a Life Plan Community

  • Financial security
  • Continuum of care
  • Peace of mind
  • A vibrant and active community
  • Your home for life
