11 Reasons Why Moving to Providence Point Could be One of the Best Choices You Ever Made
PROVIDENCE POINT IS A LIFE PLAN COMMUNITY
There are many benefits of living in a Life Plan Community (also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community) but the concept is a bit complex. They are growing in popularity as people begin to understand their unique benefits and how the assurance of health care at reduced rates can protect your assets.
WITH LIFE PLAN COMMUNITIES, MOVING EARLIER IS BETTER
To take advantage of the benefits of a Life Plan Community, you need to be in good health. You will be asked to submit a health assessment. If you wait to move after your health has declined or you require higher levels of care, you may not be eligible to receive the discounted rates on our health services.
LIFECARE HELPS YOU CONTROL COSTS AND QUALITY
Providence Point offers a program called LifeCare which acts as a long-term care insurance policy. Residents who qualify for LifeCare pay about 47 percent of the average cost of a private nursing home room in Allegheny County. Plus, Providence Point has a five-star rating with CMS (that’s the top rating), and offers all private suites in a beautifully appointed setting. In a nutshell, LifeCare, gives you the opportunity to help control the cost and quality of your future health care.
THE TRUTH ABOUT MEDICARE
If you look at Medicare literature, it states that your policy may provide up to 100 days of
long-term care. That rarely happens in this day and age. These days, long-term care coverage ends after as little as five days and rarely extends beyond 30. After that, it can be up to the individual to pay the cost of long-term health care. In Allegheny County the average cost is around $10,000 a month for a private room. Again, residents of Providence Point that have LifeCare pay about $4705 per month for 5-star quality care. That is a significant savings!
YOU’RE NOT DOWNSIZING, YOU’RE SUPERSIZING!
Although some people say they would rather stay in their current home as they age, over time it can be difficult to meet the demands of maintenance and chores such as cleaning, mowing the lawn, painting, shoveling the sidewalk, etc. At Providence Point, these services are included in the cost. Residents who love to travel enjoy the convenience of just locking the door behind them on the way out of town. No worries about pipes freezing or newspapers piling up. And, when you aren’t out traveling the world, your home now includes 32,000 sq. ft. of amenities like a surround sound theatre, salt water pool, a bank branch, courtyard, four dining venues and much more.
YOU WILL NOT BE LONELY
There’s no shortage of new friends when you move to Providence Point! There are clubs, events, and all sorts of fun to be had. The residents drive what goes on, so we offer everything from lecture series to iPad classes, drama club to bridge club, bocce to corn hole, bowling league to watercolor classes. Bring your ideas with you when you move. Our full-time events coordinator can help your plans become reality.
GIVE YOUR CHILDREN PEACE OF MIND
Moving to Providence Point is like giving a gift to your children as well as to yourself. When you move into a Life Plan Community, you have a guarantee that your healthcare needs will be met. Once you move, your children and family know that you can receive a higher level of care if you need it, and that you will receive it immediately, taking the worry and burden off their shoulders.
PROVIDENCE POINT’S LIFESTYLE AND AMENITIES ARE UNMATCHED
As a Life Plan Community, Providence Point offers all levels of care on our beautifully landscaped and appointed 32-acre campus, so you don’t have to move from place to place to get higher levels of care. Providence Point’s residential living apartments and patio homes are spacious and inviting. Hamilton Tower will feature apartments ranging in size from 888 to nearly 2,000 sq. ft. Our Personal Care apartments have a kitchenette, living room, separate bedroom with a walk-in closet and private bath. In fact, they are larger than some of the new ‘senior apartments’ popping up in our area. The suites for residents with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease and the accommodations for skilled nursing are large private rooms with private baths and inviting common areas with enriching and engaging things to do.
ACT NOW AND GET ADDED BENEFITS
A unique benefit you’ll receive by making your deposit now for the new Hamilton Tower is the availability of Life Care Now. Life Care Now is a program that pre-approves you for our self-insured long-term care insurance program. It assures you will have a place to receive care in our well-appointed Personal Care apartments, or Memory Support or Skilled Nursing suites, if the need arises for such care, before moving into your new apartment. If your health changes between the time you make your 10 percent deposit and when you move in, you are still eligible for our Life Care program.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO YOUR WELLBEING
Providence Point offers wellness as a way of life. Fresh foods, a focus on health for mind, body and spirit, and opportunities to expand, explore and fully enjoy life. As we stated above, LifeCare is like a long-term care insurance policy, so not only does it make for a wonderful wellness environment, it also makes good business sense.
DON’T WAIT—OR YOU MIGHT HAVE TO WAIT!
Right now, there is a waiting list for people who plan to move to Providence Point’s current inventory of apartments and patio homes, which is one of the main reasons we have begun our expansion plans. As Pittsburgh’s premier Life Plan Community, we would love for you to join us. Construction on Hamilton Tower is starting soon, and will take about 14-16 months. So, now is the perfect time to set a plan into motion for your brand new home, where you select the finishes, flooring and more—and avoid a waiting list.
