What Are the Benefits of a Life Plan Community?

Apr 16, 2024

Life Plan Communities offer the most all-inclusive senior living accommodations, especially when combined with a Lifecare contract. These senior living communities’ lifestyle perks, on-site amenities, activities, and care services are designed to make life easygoing for their residents.

Read on to learn more about the benefits of a Life Plan Community like The Admiral at the Lake.

What’s a Life Plan Community?

A Life Plan Community is a full-service senior living community offering Independent Living and a continuum of care in case health needs change. Choosing a Life Plan Community involves moving in while still independent and typically paying an entrance fee and monthly fees. For this, you’ll have access to a vibrant independent lifestyle and on-site care from a staff you know in a community you love. Plus, at The Admiral, having both Life Plan and Lifecare means there is the added benefit of financial security and planning for that care.

Life Plan Communities provide you ways to free yourself from daily responsibilities, maintenance, chores and bills and most importantly, the knowledge of where you will receive care if it is needed. Without these concerns, you can live every day to the fullest. Most Life Plan Communities will give you a wide variety of floor plan options when you move in at the Independent Living level. Often when seniors move, they take the opportunity to downsize, meaning a smaller space – even a modern one-bedroom residence – can open the door to a much larger lifestyle. 

At The Admiral at the Lake, our 32-story Independent Living building is complemented by our 12-story health care community, which offers Assisted Living, Memory Support, Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation. 

The fact that future care is planned and paid for is one of the most popular reasons for choosing a Life Plan Community, such as The Admiral, that also has a Life Plan contract. You will be guided through your long- and short-term skilled nursing journey by dedicated care teams, making you part of a strong, supportive community.
