Success isn’t a destination. It’s a journey. Which is why, after working your entire career to achieve a lifestyle you and your family could enjoy, retirement isn’t the time to expect anything less. In fact, it’s the time to expect more. More time to do the things you want. More opportunities to savor life and follow your passions.

If you’re looking for luxury senior living that takes care of all the responsibilities so you can explore more of life’s possibilities, it’s a good time to consider a community like Lake Forest Place.

The luxury of peace of mind.

The future is unpredictable, but it can be hard to enjoy today if you’re always worried about what tomorrow might bring. An important part of luxury senior living is having a smart and practical plan for the future, one that provides true peace of mind for you and your family. At Lake Forest Place, we offer a full continuum of care — assisted living, memory support, skilled nursing and rehabilitation — all right on-site.

We have a range of contract options with different ways to pay for care if you or your spouse ever need one of these higher levels of living. One of our most popular contracts ensures independent living residents that even if they someday need assisted living or other long-term care, they’ll pay essentially the same monthly fee as they did in independent living — the fees will always be predictable and well below market rates.

The luxury lifestyle you want and deserve.

At its core, luxury senior living embraces the vibrant lifestyle you’re accustomed to and provides more opportunities to grow and flourish in the coming years.

At Lake Forest Place, we’re ready to meet and exceed your high expectations with hospitality, comfort and excellence in every area. We offer a lifestyle uniquely tailored for independent-minded seniors, a place where you’ll always have the freedom and flexibility to continue living your best life, even if you need higher levels of care as the years progress.
