Funding Your Future
Planning for the Future | 10/10/19
When it comes to planning for retirement, the first thought might be that living in our long-term homes, (where the mortgage is paid for) is the most cost-effective plan. But what does “aging in place” in our long-time homes truly cost us?
AARP finds that the costs of maintaining a house and the property it sits on can be overwhelming and expensive as you age. Not only do you need to consider unpredictable home maintenance costs and property taxes, but modifications to your home may be needed to ensure your continued safety. These modifications – including nonslip flooring and shower surfaces, wider doorways and step-free layouts – add up.
Along with the consideration of the cost of property maintenance and upgrades, keep in mind that healthcare needs may change, and you’ll want a cost-effective plan in place should this happen.
That’s why The Atrium at Navesink Harbor makes planning for retirement easy. As a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), we offer a financially secure lifestyle and peace of mind that your needs will be taken care of, now and in the future.
Choosing a CCRC means enjoying an active, engaging life with comfort in knowing a plan is in place for your future. And, with a maintenance-free lifestyle, our attentive team members take care of the little things so residents can pursue enriching activities on campus and in the region.
With a full continuum of care available right on campus, you’re able to transition seamlessly from one level of care to another should your needs change. The Lifecare option guarantees residents the care they need at predictable monthly payments – for as long as they need – at rates similar to those paid in independent living.
Now the real question is: how can I afford this? Thankfully, there are a variety of options for you to consider when making the move. The most common way includes personal income and savings.
A discussion with your financial advisor or one of our trusted sales counselors is encouraged to ensure short- and long-term financial goals are viable, so you will stay financially comfortable now and in the future. And, if you want to get started today, we recommend downloading the free Retire Your Way Guide.
Jeff Westerman found peace of mind when his parents decided to move to The Atrium. Their long-term home became dangerous, and, “the reality of staying there, even with live-in assistance, was too much, just not safe or manageable.” Now, his parents are thriving and loving life in the community.
