For many people, a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) also known as a Life Plan Community, may be a foreign concept. These communities are sometimes compared to a cruise ship that never leaves the dock. Why? Almost everything is available at your fingertips.
The Big Picture
The beauty of CCRCs is that all levels of care are available on one campus. The continuum of care includes Independent Living, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing.
Seniors who decide to make the move to Westminster Towers before they need to get to enjoy all of the amenities of our Independent Living Apartment Homes without the physical and financial burdens of taking care of a home. Residents enjoy chef-prepared meals in an elegant setting, maintenance, housekeeping, wellness classes with personal trainers and chauffeured transportation, to name a few.
As a resident’s health needs change, Assisted Living is available for what you may guess – more assistance with the activities of daily living. This may include bathing, dressing, toileting, etc. The good news is the move is not far. No need to rent a moving truck and travel across town! It’s available on the same campus and the resident still gets to socialize with his/her friends.
If a resident needs further assistance beyond the scope of Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing care is available on the campus as well. Residents receive the person-centered care needed and also get to enjoy life-engaging activities on a daily basis.
It’s never too early to start planning your life at Westminster Towers! Do your research and tour communities. Remember this important point – don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today! Make the decision for yourself so your loved ones won’t have to make it for you. They will be grateful for it and so will you!
