The Amazing Value And Reach Of LifeCare
In recent years, retirement communities have moved away from the term “continuing care retirement community” (CCRC) because the term “CCRC” fails to describe the vibrant, forward-looking nature of the contemporary senior living community. Many older adults prefer the new term, “Life Plan Community” which switches the emphasis from passive care to active living and planning—a shift that appeals to younger, healthier senior adults. Providence Point, owned and operated by Baptist Homes Society is a registered CCRC, which means it is an “Age-restricted property that includes a combination of independent living, personal care, and skilled nursing services available to residents all on one campus” and it is a Life Plan Community.
According to Leading Age, a nonprofit organization dedicated to being a voice for aging, Life Plan Communities are expected to have a focus on an active lifestyle and be integrated into the larger community with an emphasis on being socially responsible. As Pittsburgh’s premier senior living community, Providence Point is a true Life Plan Community offering LifeCare. It is a community of individuals who appreciate the value of meaningful living. Providence Point offers exceptional service, an active environment for life enrichment and wellness, and a continuum of person-centered care within a beautiful 32-acre campus in Pittsburgh’s South Hills region.
