The decision to move to a senior living community is an important one, requiring extensive discussion and research. This Decision Guide is a place to begin weighing the many benefits of living at Providence Point.
What to expect…
Providence Point’s elegant, yet comfortable, 32-acre campus is the perfect place to enjoy a retirement centered on keeping active, socializing and staying well. Our location in suburban Pittsburgh offers great opportunities for everything you could want from a cosmopolitan environment, and our campus provides a surprising array of amenities, services, dining options and activities.
My family will wonder why…
Perhaps you’ve lived in the same home for years, or even decades, so this type of change may seem sudden to your family. You’ll want to make sure they understand that you’re ready for a change, whether it’s prompted by health concerns or you’re simply tired of dealing with home maintenance.
Ask family members to accompany you on a visit to Providence Point, and encourage them to meet residents and staff members. Once your family understands that this move is important to your happiness and well being, in addition to being a sound financial decision, you’ll be surprised just how supportive they’ll be!
I know they’ll worry about my security and happiness…
A big part of retiring securely and happily involves continuing to do those things that bring you pleasure and keep you well. Pleasure for you that may involve any one of the six aspects of wellness: spiritual, physical, intellectual, community, emotional, social.
The lifestyle at Providence Point is centered on wellness, a fact that enhances and supports the sense of security and well being for all of our residents. So, whether you take pleasure in reading a great novel, meeting friends at a café or swimming laps, you’ll find what you need right here. And you can be confident that, whether alone or with a newfound group of friends, Providence Point is a safe, secure place to live.
What happens if my health situation changes?
Providence Point is a LifeCare retirement community, which means once you become a resident, you’ll have access to a lifetime continuum of care, right here on campus. LifeCare literally takes the worry out of planning for your future health care.
Residents of our private suites in Personal Care, Memory Support, and Skilled Nursing residences enjoy access to the same amenities and services as those living in our Patio Homes and apartment residences. This seamless continuation of lifestyle opportunities makes Providence Point a very special place to live.
Is this a good financial move?
Moving into a retirement community makes the most of your available resources now, and helps stretch those resources to ensure that future needs are met. Many experts agree that the lifestyle and financial benefits of living in a retirement community far surpass those of remaining in an older, paid-off home.
A not-for profit community, Providence Point was developed by Baptist Homes Society, one of Pittsburgh’s most respected names in retirement living. Our contract options offer a number of ways to help preserve and protect your financial assets.
Speak to your financial advisor to discuss the potential tax savings available when you move to a continuing care retirement community and to be sure Providence Point is a good fit for you.
