The Importance of Having A Plan Now

No one ever wants to imagine themselves getting older. We put off making a plan for our future because it’s easier not to! But having a plan in place is the best assurance you can have for yourself, your husband or wife, and your children and grandchildren. When illness or injury strike, it’s better to have a plan in place.

The best way to do it is to start now. A Continuing Care Retirement Community, also known as a Life Plan Community, can be a strong partner for your plan for your future. These communities, like Westminster Communities of Florida’s active living communities, offer all the benefits of an active and engaging lifestyle with maintenance-free living now, and the assurance of knowing that if you need more support for life’s changing needs, it’s available to you.

Many of our residents say that living at a Westminster community has provided a great relief to them, knowing that they’ve taken care of making a plan and relieved their families of concern.

Here are five key tips to making your plan, from LeadingAge, one of the nation’s leading advocacy organization for older adults:

  1. Put your finances first. Meet with a lawyer or financial adviser. Consider purchasing a long-term care insurance plan now.
  2. Look around. Find the community that’s right for you! It’s not just about the cost – it’s about how you want to spend the best years of your life. Find the Westminster community that’s right for you now
  3. Plan for the unexpected. Medical emergencies can cause a lot of stress for you and your whole family. If you do your research and make a plan now, then you’ll make it much more manageable if and when that day comes.
  4. Plan now. Choosing the right senior living community, if that’s your choice, takes time to find the perfect fit.
  5. Start saving. If you’re still working, use this opportunity to make sure your financial plan is where you want it to be. Isn't your wellbeing worth the investment?
