Future residency program at Village is for retirement planners…
Type the word “retirement” into Google and see 250,000,000 results…that’s 250 million articles, websites and blogs advising you on “Where to retire,” “How much to save for retirement,” “Retirement planning,” “What to do when you retire,” the list goes on and on and on. All this information at our fingertips yet some of you reading this blog right now may not have adequate retirement funds saved or long-term retirement plans. Do you know where you’ll live when you retire and what will happen when you start to need assisted care? If you have a plan, does it include living to be 100 years old? If you do not plan accordingly for retirement you may be leaving that decision to your children (if you even have children) and may ultimately end up somewhere you would not have chosen for yourself.
Savvy planners educate themselves early on retirement options so that they make an informed decision when the time is right rather than a “crisis driven” decision. Continuing Care Retirement Communities offer the most security both financially and medically as well as peace of mind for those planning long-term. You can read more about the benefits of a CCRC in an earlier blog post.
Village On The Isle offers a Future Residency Program designed for those who are future planning or those retirees who are waiting for a specific type of Independent Living apartment to become available. Many future residents join this program several years prior to reaching their planned retirement age. Some may be waiting for their current house to sell, whatever the reason these retirees have done their homework and are making an educated decision for their retirement. All members of the Future Residency Program have full access to Village On The Isle amenities, this gives them a chance to see the lifestyle at Village and socialize with others in their same peer group. As part of the Future Residency Program, members may request they be notified when a certain type of apartment becomes available during a certain time frame. Village On The Isle staff constantly monitors the FRP and notifies members accordingly.
Long-term planning for retirement is key. Many of us buy our burial plot years in advance or set up our will years in advance, well what about the in between? Why are we not as proactive about where the best place to spend our retirement years are? What will happen the years where we may need extra care and/or assisted living or even skilled nursing care? Serious planners educated themselves and make sound decisions on how their life will be spent in the “golden years.” It is ultimately your choice, your plan and how you choose to live. Take charge of your life, start planning and educating yourself now. Do NOT be crisis driven. After all in retirement, “Your Time is Now!”
