July 22, 2020
Secure your financial future. Continuing care retirement communities like Piedmont Crossing are a wise plan for your financial future. Your monthly service fee covers home maintenance (both inside and outside) as well as property taxes, lawn care, activities, and more. Plus, a portion of your monthly fee and entrance fee may qualify for inclusion on your income tax return as prepaid medical expenses.
No more home maintenance. This is a big ONE! Tired of raking leaves, shoveling snow or fixing those gutters? Frustrated with trying to find reliable and trustworthy people to take care of your home repairs? Leave those tasks, which can even become dangerous to your health in your later years, to a team of helpful, caring professionals. With less time spent on home maintenance, you’ll have more time to focus on the things you enjoy most.
Your overall health might improve. Retirement communities understand the importance of helping residents stay happy, healthy and engaged in the world around them. You’ll find wellness programs that focus on many dimensions of well-being, including physical, social, emotional, intellectual, environmental, spiritual and vocational.
Avoid the risk of social isolation. Staying socially involved has a major impact on your health. In fact, studies have shown that seniors who continue to build and maintain relationships throughout their lives have better memory and cognition, and they decrease their risk for a variety of chronic conditions. At Piedmont Crossing, you’ll find a variety of daily and weekly programs to choose from - designed to keep you engaged.
Ease concerns of family members. It’s common for adult children to become the primary caregiver for an aging parent in their later years. Often, this takes a toll on not only the family relationship but also on the caregiver’s health. Moving to a continuing care retirement community can help ease the worries your children may have about your healthcare needs down the road, as they know they’ll be covered by the continuum of care offering at Piedmont Crossing.
