“This past year has shown us that Park Place is always here for you when the unexpected happens, and we will always rise to meet the needs of our residents,” says Beth McGowan Welch, Executive Director at Park Place of Elmhurst, a Life Care Community in the Chicago-area region. “As we start a new year, this is the perfect opportunity for older adults and their family members to think about the future and make plans to ensure that they will have the very best possible senior lifestyle experience.”
Life Care Communities are becoming more popular among the senior population, and for good reason. The Baby Boomers are embracing retirement as a chance to explore the world, launch new careers and basically live the life they want free of responsibilities, chores and cares.
“These days, retirement is being reinvented as the best chapter of your life to date and moving to a Life Care Community is one of the best ways to make sure this chapter will be a happy and successful one,” Beth says. Here are just a few reasons why a Life Care Community may be the best choice you could make for your retirement years.
1. You’ll enjoy the active, independent lifestyle you crave now.
These days moving to senior living is like moving into an all-inclusive resort. Today’s seniors are demanding more and more from their retirement years, and senior living communities have risen to the occasion.
Independent Living has become incredibly popular with Boomers because it’s a lifestyle that clears their plate of chores, tasks, to-dos and other tedious things and paves the way for a rewarding, engaging, active lifestyle. It’s all about providing an atmosphere where you can enjoy every day exactly as you want. At Park Place, we say “do what you love and leave the rest to us.” It’s just that simple.
2. You have peace of mind for the future.
Life Care is a solid, reliable plan that protects your finances by guarding you against rising health costs while also giving you peace of mind for the future.
As a Life Care resident at Park Place, you’ll always be able to receive care in a place you’ve come to know and love. You will also have priority access to Assisted Living, Memory Support, Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing. You and your loved ones will never have to worry about what will happen if you need additional care. You are in the most caring, safest place possible. It’s truly a wonderful gift for you and your family.
3. Life revolves around you.
After spending a lifetime caring for others, you’ve earned the opportunity to enjoy a life that truly caters to you. Everything you could want is available outside your front doorstep – literally. You have fine dining opportunities right there, and all you must do is sit and be served – you don’t have to go grocery shopping, cook or clean up (what a treat). There are all sorts of fitness and wellness programs tailored to your needs and interests so you can remain happy, healthy, engaged, entertained and inspired – meaning a healthier retirement for you.
In short, a Life Care Community like Park Place is truly the best of both worlds for today’s seniors: the benefits of home with amenities to live a carefree life. It provides independence for your senior years, along with assistance when it’s needed. It provides financial security; plus, the lifestyle you want now and in the future. And even though none of us can predict the future, a Life Care Community sets you up for the best one possible.
