Invest in your future well-being with LifeCare.

All LifeCare retirement communities are continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), but not all CCRCs are LifeCare communities. What differentiates the two?

A CCRC is a senior living community that provides either a full or a partial continuum of care in order to meet residents’ healthcare needs. In contrast, a LifeCare community is a special type of CCRC. It offers a full continuum of care and a contract that guarantees a fixed/predictable monthly service fee.

LifeCare communities are designed to address any possible healthcare unknowns, protect your estate, offer possible tax advantages and ease financial concerns over the rising costs that come with long-term care and maintaining a home.

Only a LifeCare community such as The Clare offers the security of knowing you are not leaving any future decisions up to anyone else – or up to chance. Additional levels of care, such as assisted living, memory support, skilled nursing and rehabilitation services are all in our same magnificent building.

Your Monthly Costs are Always Predictable

Many new residents tell us that home ownership began to wear thin because of all the extras they had to pay for as separate items. The utility bills that kept going up, the amenities that were out-of-pocket, the repairs and replacements that reared their costly heads. Fortunately, these are things you never have to think about at The Clare. The Clare is your promise of relaxed, all-inclusive comfort.
