Spring is a great time to take action and ensure you get the future you want. As you make decisions about senior living for your future, it’s important to look at a wide range of issues — from the benefits of different senior living options to your personal lifestyle preferences and needs to your financial situation.
At Luther Manor senior living, we’ve been helping older adults and their families for 60 years. We’re proud to offer a full spectrum of free resources to help you navigate the process. To get you started, here are a few of the questions we hear most often along with resources to help you dig in and get answers that are relevant to you.
When is the right time to make a move?
The right time to make a move is different for everyone. Maybe you’re ready to let go of maintenance or need some assistance around the house. Perhaps you want an easier way to socialize and enjoy your favorite pastimes.
Life Plan communities such as Luther Manor ensure you have everything you need in one place. To get the most value from a Life Plan community, many residents choose to move sooner rather than later and live in an independent living Wauwatosa wi community, which at Luther Manor is The Terrace.
If you’re considering when to make your move, try our personal assessment tool. It takes just four minutes and shows you what’s available depending on your goals.
What’s the difference between an entrance fee plan and renting at a senior living community?
Entrance fee plans and rental agreements offer different advantages. The one you choose depends on your preferences, goals and financial situation. Entrance fee plans provide access to higher levels of care and lower monthly fees. Month-to-month rental agreements give you more flexibility as well as access to the community’s amenities, services and health care but at a higher monthly fee.
