There are few things as comforting as knowing your future needs are taken care of, and you won’t have to worry about your own healthcare or burden your family with it. Such is the comfort found with Carillon’s LifeCare program. Residents agree that LifeCare affords them the opportunity to make informed decisions about their lifestyle desires and care needs, and the peace of mind from knowing you’ve expertly planned ahead is a reward all its own.
Non-LifeCare communities, with low or no up-front fees and rental options, may seem like a good value at first glance. But the critical difference is that these contracts do not offer the security of unlimited access to health care. This can mean substantial and unpredictable health care costs down the road.
With the rising cost of long-term health care, fees for nursing care can escalate to amounts more than $7,000 per month. Genworth Financial offers a valuable resource for Cost of Care specific to your location, and you can find more information about possible insurance benefits here.
How Does LifeCare Work?
Residents pay a one-time entrance fee and a monthly fee for access to unlimited nursing care for life, including onsite assisted living, skilled nursing care, memory care, and rehabilitation.
Two contract options are available: the Traditional Declining option secures your future with the least capital investment, and the 50% Return of Capital option provides for estate preservation and a 50% entrance fee refund to a resident’s estate.
As a resident transitions to higher levels of care, there’s virtually NO increase in the monthly fee! It’s a freedom that empowers our residents to focus on living a full life after retirement.
Are there any guarantees?
Yes! Carillon offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee to ensure residents are happy with the decision to join the community. If in the first six months of residency you are not completely satisfied, you can have 100% of your entrance fee returned.
