Having a Life Care plan in place can help promote and maintain good health, safety, and well-being of elders while guaranteeing peace of mind for families. Life Care provides protection and assurance that seniors will receive the care they need in a comfortable and caring community. Establishing a Life Care plan for the seniors in your family allows you to prepare for the future without worry. Here are the top three benefits of Life Care:

Asset Protection

Whether you or your family member is joining a community that offers Life Care, there is assurance that assets and income will be protected if long-term assisted living or expert nursing care is required. The cost of long-term health care is increasing each year, so it is important to know that you or your family member’s assets are protected against increasing costs. Additionally, a Life Care contract assures that you know exactly what you will pay every month, no matter the level of care you need.

Guaranteed Lifetime Residency

It is comforting to know that your loved ones are happy and secure at a senior living facility. Life Care communities allow residents to remain in the community that they are comfortable with even if their level of care changes. Whether your loved ones are in independent living, assisted living, or skilled nursing, they will be able to be surrounded by the same staff and community members that they have grown accustomed to thanks to the “age in place” policy.

Peace of Mind

Knowing your family members are comfortable and getting the services they need even when they are not under your immediate care brings an enormous sense of peace of mind. Life Care can give you comfort in knowing that you have unlimited, lifetime access to the care you need at no additional cost. Having peace of mind in your future allows you to enjoy the present and focus on making memories with friends and family in the current moment.
