Shhh. Nobody wants to talk about it.
But let’s say it happens: The doctor tells you and your family you need skilled nursing. With Life Care at this CCRC, what comes next is you move down the hall and around the bend. That’s where the care is, with your friends still close by, and meanwhile your partner stays in that beautiful apartment you’ve shared for a while. Sure, your monthly rate goes up – but only enough for 2 more daily meals. And that’s it. It’s as convenient as such a thing can be. And it’s predictable, cost-wise, even if health itself isn’t. Plus, the actual care? Well, you’ll have a hard time finding this level of care and commitment anywhere else.
