One of the most important parts of what makes our LifeConnect® Partnership work so well is that each individual is in control of his or her journey to enhanced wellness. When a resident joins our community, the Resident Life Director conducts a LifeConnect interview to learn more about the individual. After the interview, the Resident Life Director is able to inform the resident of activities and clubs that might fit his or her interests and hobbies, like wellness clubs, volunteering programs, continued education, and more. ow.ly/ydh450wEUrz...

When’s the best time to move to a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)? Since it’s impossible to know what kinds of care you’ll need in the future, CCRCs provide a sort of one-stop-shop solution, one that allows you to age in place, building friendships in the community with the knowledge that you won’t have to relocate as you or your spouse’s needs change. So, when’s the best time to make the move? “Sooner rather than later,” says Sue Johansen, VP of partner services at A Place for Mom, a Seattle-based senior referral service.

"Sooner rather than later" is the approach my dad took after my mom died. He's had several years at the Holmstad to make great friends and develop trust with the staff. That's been key to his wonderful attitude with unexpected health changes this year. So grateful that he moved when he did!
I second the advice to move in sooner rather than waiting until it becomes a necessity. I am concerned that this article seems to describe a “Type A” financial plan as a standard for CCRC’s. Haven’t the majority moved to a Type B financial plan?
Covenant Living at the Holmstad is looking for Dining staff, including Servers, Diet Aides, Utility and Cooks! If you or someone you know fit the bill, stop by our Job Fair this Thursday, October 3rd, from 2:00pm - 5:00pm. We’re excited to expand our team: make sure you’re in it! ... See moreSee less
