A CCRC in NC: Decide Your Future at Grace Ridge

As a CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community) in NC, we can help you decide your future before someone else does.

The older we get, the more our long-term care plans weigh on our minds. We know you don’t want to think about it, but just think of the relief when YOU make a decision, not your children or another loved one.

At Grace Ridge Retirement Community, we are here to help you decide.

It’s smart to choose a place to retire BEFORE you or your spouse need long term health care. Benefits from moving before a life-altering health event include:

  • If one spouse needs care, their partner is on the same campus and close by.
  • As a resident of the retirement community, you are already familiar with the area and possibly some of the care staff in the event you need nursing care.
  • You are settled so admission to the long term care or nursing facility is not so nerve-wracking. After all, it’s your neighborhood.
  • You know that you will be admitted to a quality facility instead of playing chance with which facility has an opening.
  • Within a community, the staff will work with you so that the transition INTO and then BACK OUT of the nursing area is seamless.

Grace Ridge is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) and we offer a LifeCare agreement. It’s priceless and brings a peace of mind.

Retiring to a CCRC with a LifeCare contract is an insurance product that guarantees cost of future health care and is a way to protect hard earned assets.  Grace Ridge is only one of 10 CCRCs in North Carolina that offers LifeCare contracts.

With the cost of assisted living in North Carolina ranging from $4,200 to $5,000 a month and for skilled nursing care costing $7,500, your life savings could be wiped out in a short amount of time.

We urge you to check out the benefits of the LifeCare concept. Should your needs change – be it assisted living, nursing care and dementia care – you’ll be secure in the knowledge that high-quality supportive services and care are available in an attractive, professionally staffed environment for essentially the same cost as living in your residence. It doesn’t hurt that a portion of both the entrance fee and the monthly service fee is recognized as a prepaid health care benefit and may be deductible for tax purposes.
