Choosing a retirement living option is a big decision. However, if you know what you’re looking for, it doesn’t have to be a difficult one.
So how will you know if you’ve chosen correctly?
It won’t feel like you’re giving anything up. In fact, it will probably feel like you’ve gained quite a bit — from new friends and unique amenities to programming and activities designed to help you pursue your passions.
While you’re deciding what retirement living option would be a good fit for you, remember these unique advantages of living in a Life Plan community, formally known as a continuing care retirement community.
Peace of Mind
Choosing a Life Plan community can provide peace of mind for the rest of your life. For example, Friendship Village of Dublin is a Life Plan community, which means you pay an entry fee and monthly fee making healthcare available whenever you need it. This way, you can save money in the long run and enjoy the security of knowing you have priority care for the rest of your life.
Our upfront entrance fee and monthly fee are set for life, eliminating many of the “what-ifs” that come with finances in retirement. As a Lifecare community, we cover costs as they arise, so there are no surprise or burdensome bills in your future.
Top Notch Care
Joining a Life Plan community also means you’ll have on-site access to top-notch care — from on-site physicians and rehabilitation to assisted living and memory care support. At Friendship Village of Dublin, our health center has been ranked in the top of all nursing and rehabilitative care locations by the Ohio Department of Aging. We also maintain an exceptional rating through the Center of Medicare and Medicaid 5 Star Rating Program.
Staying physically, mentally and emotionally well throughout your lifetime takes almost constant effort. However, many Life Plan communities, like Friendship Village of Dublin, are set up to make this easy through wellness programming. From wellness instructors that provide personalized exercise routines to on-call physicians, a Life Plan community offers high-quality care from a staff that knows you.
No Home Maintenance
Life Plan community living means you can kick back and enjoy your retirement — even if something in your home breaks. At Friendship Village of Dublin, our residents have access to outdoor maintenance and IT support. They also enjoy living in a manicured community without having to do any of the outdoor maintenance themselves.
Living in a Life Plan community guarantees you’re always surrounded by like-minded individuals. In fact, several studies suggest that maintaining strong social connections can increase our health and longevity as we age. From art classes, state-of-the-art amenities and more than 15 resident committees, you’ll always have the opportunity to interact with others in the community.
A retirement community is made up of more than its residents — it’s an extension of the local community. Just a short walk or ride from Historic Dublin, Friendship Village of Dublin is a part of a vibrant local community. Whether you want to enjoy a day at the zoo, take a walk down the Scioto River or enjoy Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, you’ll never be far from fun things to do outside of the community.
Friendship Village of Dublin is located along Riverside Drive, just a short distance from Dublin and other surrounding central Ohio communities. As the largest continuing care retirement community in central Ohio, we’re committed to providing Columbus residents with top-notch amenities and one-of-a-kind retirement living options.
