This program lets more seniors embrace the freedom of independent living by tailoring their senior living costs to suit their budget. To customize your entrance fee, select your residence now with less out of pocket, then pay the remainder of your entrance fee on a flexible timeline.

Life Care

Our Life Care contract offers a way to pay for long-term care expenses while saving you tens of thousands of dollars on long-term health care, if ever needed. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, 7 out of 10 adults will need long-term care at some point, for an average of 3 years. Considering the likelihood that you or your spouse will need some level of care, Life Care can be a financial lifesaver!
