The Advantages of CCRC Living

"Continuing Care Retirement Communities," or "CCRCs" like Lenbrook, provide a unique set of advantages and unlimited opportunities for residents to enjoy healthier and happier lifestyles for years to come.

If you ask Lenbrook residents why they chose a CCRC community, most often you'll hear the phrase "peace of mind."

For some, this peace comes from never having to worry about home repairs, maintenance or security ever again. For others, it's preserving financial assets for their family. And for most, it's knowing full healthcare services are provided on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, whenever needed.

Here's a closer look how CCRCs provide a lifetime of value and peace of mind to residents:

Full range of healthcare services on one campus.

Residents find great peace of mind in knowing they have access to all levels of quality health care, at anytime, right on the Lenbrook campus. That peace of mind starts with a 60-day healthcare benefit in the Lenbrook Health Center each year, which allows you to easily take care of any unexpected, short-term healthcare needs.

In addition, knowing you have access to convenient, high quality health care right for the rest of your life contributes to even greater peace of mind. To secure quality care in advance–in a beautiful, modern environment–is the smart choice, rather than waiting until a serious healthcare need arises and the options available are limited.

Finally, it's reassuring to know you won't have to move to another community if your healthcare needs change. You can elect to have personal care provided in your own apartment home or live in Lenbrook's full service Health Center. Lenbrook's highly trained and caring professionals are here to help you evaluate options, make informed choices and manage change.

Financial and tax benefits.

The lifetime value of a CCRC, when you compare it to other types of senior living options, makes it a smart financial decision. The entrance fee and monthly fees factor in the many services and amenities available to you every day, present and future healthcare needs and the size and style of the apartment home you choose. This is an investment that starts paying off the minute you move in and continues to benefit you every day, for years to come.

Lenbrook offers a 90% refundable entrance fee, which means that the resident or the resident’s estate will receive 90% of the entrance fee you paid when you no longer live at Lenbrook and your apartment home is re-sold and occupied. A refundable entrance fee offers you an effective means of preserving that asset for your family.

To provide greater financial flexibility and meet varying family needs, Lenbrook offers several alternate refund plans including a 50% refundable option and a non-refundable entrance fee plan.

By living in a CCRC, you could also be eligible for a tax deduction for a portion of your entrance fee (one-time benefit) and for a portion of your monthly fee (annual benefit) as prepaid medical expenses.

Assurance of care.

Lenbrook residents have guaranteed access to the community's Health Center and Rehabilitation Services over non-residents who may qualify for temporary care on a space-available basis.

It is also important to note that Lenbrook is a not-for-profit CCRC with a Foundation in place to ensure no resident will be asked to leave the community due to financial hardship. This not-for-profit status also provides peace of mind that the organization is led by a cohesive management team with a deep desire to the meet the needs of past, current and future residents and their families.
