Life Plan Communities offer a wide range of housing choices and services for a life filled with possibilities while still offering a continuum of supportive and advanced health care services should they be needed. As a result, a Life Plan Community allows planning and living to merge. Having a plan in place—the security and safety net provided by the availability of health care, coupled with the freedom from not having to manage all the day-to-day tasks that come with homeownership—allows residents to live life to the fullest.
It sounds great but I just don’t think I’m ready yet…
We recommend that you consider asking yourself “what exactly is it that I am not ready for yet?” Most of the residents living in a Presbyterian Community said the same thing initially, but now they are here and enjoying all of the value and benefits of Life Plan Community living. We understand that to contemplate moving from a home you have lived in for many years can be quite overwhelming. Please consider comparing the real costs and inefficiencies of maintaining an older home to the cost of living in a Presbyterian Community. We also encourage you to evaluate what the future resale value of an older home would be. While your current home equity may be buying shelter for you, could it not do so much more in terms of securing an improved lifestyle at a Presbyterian Community? Then there is the challenge of what to do with all of the “stuff.” We would be pleased to connect you with a variety of community agencies and programs that offer services ranging from planning and organizing the move to home sales assistance and staging. Just about every resident we have experienced the same worries and concerns about moving that you are now facing. And almost without exception, the most common feedback we receive after the move is “I wish I had made the decision to do this much sooner.”
