Transitioning to a Life Plan Community is something many people think about, as is when it is best to make that transition. This answer is often different for everyone, but there are a growing number of reasons why transitioning earlier is better than doing so later.

“Transitioning to a Life Plan Community early allows for a wider range of benefits,” says Cathleen McGaffigan, Director of Marketing at Kendal® on Hudson. “Some residents claim they want to give their families peace of mind, others want to add new experiences to their lifestyle, but one thing is for certain, they understand how much a Life Plan Community can add to and enhance their lives even more.”

3 Reasons Why Transitioning to a Life Plan Community Now Is the Best Plan

  1. You want to enjoy peace of mind while securing your assets.

    At a Life Plan Community, residents can age in place in the community they have chosen and love. No matter what your care needs are, they are able to be accommodated, whether little assistance is needed, or more is required. Life Plan Communities ensure that the quality of care you enjoy now is guaranteed no matter what, at the same price you’ve set in your Lifecare agreement. This allows for added financial security as well as a set financial plan.

  2. The better your health, the easier it is to maintain it while becoming more active.

    It’s hard to enjoy everything Kendal on Hudson offers if you wait until you need a higher level of care. Instead of waiting until you need care, make the move now. Kendal on Hudson also offers plenty of fitness and exercise classes, a well-equipped fitness center, indoor pool and outdoor walking paths, to help you to maintain and improve your fitness!
