How do Life Plan Communities work?

We’re answering your most common questions about Life Plan Communities, what they offer, and what you need to know.

To live in a Life Plan Community, a senior needs to be healthy and independent, not yet requiring care services. In other words, they must enter into independent living, not another level of care. If they meet those requirements, they can choose their preferred floor plan, pay their entrance fee, determine their monthly fee, and secure financial predictability and the peace of mind of access to care for life.

Continuing care retirement communities and Life Plan Communities offer the same thing; In fact, they’re exactly the same. Both are interchangeable terms for communities that offer older adults and their families peace of mind, access to a range of care options, and financial security and predictability.

Costs may vary depending on whether you choose a LifeCare contract or a Type B contract, your choice of floor plan, and its size. At The Moorings of Arlington Heights, entrance fees for independent living start at $147,200 for a one-bedroom apartment.

Many not-for-profit Life Plan Communities, like The Moorings, offer assistance should a resident experience financial hardship through no fault of their own. Here, residents can apply to the Geneva Foundation for financial assistance, ensuring peace of mind and security.

Yes! For those requiring care immediately, we invite direct admissions to assisted living and memory care all for one monthly fee – and no entrance fee required.
