The answer is moving to an Active Adult Community
that includes provisions for future health care. This is the
only way you can remain in the same community without making multiple future moves, and have the health care accommodations and services you need, when you need them.
The generations of people before us didn’t have to deal with the retirement puzzle pieces we’re dealing with now. Primarily, because they weren’t living as long in retirement as we are expected to.
Before making a move, be sure you’ve solved everything. Will you be able to remain in the same community with
the lifestyle you want, and get the care you need when you need it? Because that will require you to find a Life Plan Community that combines housing in an Active Adult Community with all of the health care accommodations and services for you, when and if you need them.
If you’re planning for retirement and are trying to figure out all of the pieces of the retirement puzzle, three things are certain:
- You’re going to live longer than people who retired in generations before you. People in good health can live 30 years in retirement now.
- Because people are living longer, they’ll likely be dealing with more chronic illnesses that require long term health care services and support. Consider these odds…70% of people over the age of 65 will need long term health care for 3 years.
- The costs of long term health care are rising each year. Today, you need to be planning for costs that can easily exceed $100,000 per year to cover long term health care accommodations and services.
These are the three pieces of the retirement puzzle we’ll face down the road. But first we want the retirement lifestyle we’ve dreamed about…a home in a community that provides great housing, amenities for activities and hospitality services to free us from the burdens of home and property maintenance. So how can you have it all…one retirement solution to solve all of the pieces of the retirement puzzle?
