How Life Plan Communities Help Couples Stay Together

We all need support from time to time. But it’s just as important to feel that you can do things in your own way. Continuing Care Retirement Communities – also called Life Plan Communities – take care of daily responsibilities so senior couples can enjoy their retirement to the fullest. 

This article will share insight into how couples can thrive in senior living communities, growing closer because their everyday care and lifestyle needs are met. Keep reading for an overview of how Life Plan Communities can help couples stay together and enjoy their lives to the fullest.

Life Plan Communities

The truth is that you can’t plan for everything. 

You can, however, set yourself up for the future so that you have access to care down the road. At a Life Plan Community like WhiteStone, a comprehensive approach can be of some help when outlining a path for your elder years. 

According to, 70% of seniors over the age of 65 will require some form of long-term or continuing care during their lifetime. No matter the state of a spouse’s health, a full continuum of care means they can receive required care when and where they need it. Perhaps most importantly, couples can put down roots in their new home and settle into a new phase of life.

These communities and their staff know how important it is to embrace an independent living lifestyle, so Life Plan Communities usually offer a fitness center, multiple dining options and frequent community activities. Amenities like these help seniors to live their own rich lives free of the worries associated with home care. 

Plus, everything you need is on-site or often closeby, from shopping to movies to beautiful settings for a date night. Living costs are included in your monthly rate, and as hinted at before, present and future long-term care rates are factored into your overall cost. 

At WhiteStone, couples live the way they want, provided for by our dedicated teams.
