A Lifecare Community

Lifecare – A No-Worry Investment in a Healthy Retirement

At Willow Valley Communities, Lifecare is more than the assurance of a full continuum of high quality care, including Personal Care, Skilled Nursing, and Memory Support, provided at no additional expense should the need arise. Lifecare is designed to free your mind from worry about rising costs associated with long-term care and maintaining a home, so you can simply enjoy life.

A Comprehensive Approach to Healthy Aging

Lifecare is about proactively managing your quality of life as you age. At the very heart of the carefree and appealing lifestyle available at Willow Valley Communities is a unique program called Lifecare – and it is the number one reason our residents choose to live in one of our beautiful communities.
Lifecare is a plan that eases life’s stressors by systematically addressing future financial liability relative to long-term care expenses and offering a full continuum of Supportive Living services – from independent living to skilled nursing support. Simply put, Lifecare functions as an unconditional long-term care policy wrapped in a healthy and fulfilling resort lifestyle – so that our residents can enjoy this chapter of their lives in an inspiring and supportive environment free from worrying about future escalating long-term care expenses.

How does Lifecare work?

Residents 60 years of age or older join the community as active, independent adults. (A sentiment we hear very frequently from residents is, “I wish I would have moved here ten years ago.”)
Residents select a home or apartment of their choice to lease for the remainder of their lives, selecting from a full range of options including more than 80 floor plans.
Residents pay a one- time entrance fee and an ongoing monthly service fee. The fee varies based on the residence and amenities selected. A Lifecare Agreement assures that the monthly service fee does not increase, even as a result of needing a higher level of care, whether temporary or long term. This crucial assurance provides financial peace of mind and predictability of costs.

What does the monthly service fee include?

The monthly service fee includes 24/7 emergency response from on-site nursing staff, interior and exterior maintenance, utilities (excluding cable, internet, and phone), scheduled transportation, property taxes, recreational and cultural activities, and in many cases, two professionally prepared meals per day.

What else should I know?


While Lifecare is a wise and tax deductible financial strategy for future long term care, there are other important benefits, as well, that allow you to enjoy your senior years in the best possible environment.
These benefits include:

  • Full support in the event of a significant change in health of you or your spouse, and the reduction of stress from just knowing you have any level of support you might need (Just imagine knowing that there would be no need to have to sell a home, pack, move, seek care providers, or deal with financial issues on top of dealing with a health-related event.)  
  • The encouragement and support of peers and the health benefits of socialization (Research shows that a socially engaged lifestyle has many benefits including a reduced rate of memory decline.)
  • Peace of mind for family members and other caregivers who would feel secure in knowing you have full support in the event of any health-related event or decline
  • Nutritional oversight, fitness and wellness coordination, social services and other support services
  • The convenience of many services under one roof, including a beauty salon, dining rooms, libraries, recreational facilities, social gathering areas, a pharmacy, and banks
  • Cultural, educational, spiritual and travel opportunities including a 500-seat performing arts center – all with the right mix of traditional values and fresh, inspiring experiences
  • Many special events throughout the year that enrich mind, body, and spirit
  • Intergenerational-friendly amenities and activities including billiards, tennis, train rooms, pools, fishing ponds, summer programs, and picnic pavilions

Lifecare is the best investment someone can make in today’s unpredictable economic climate

Why do Residents call Willow Valley a “no-worry” investment in independent senior living? It’s because of our stable, innovative leadership and a 25-year history of prudent financial management. It’s because of the Lifecare contract we’ve designed, which further protects your financial assets. The coverage you purchase today will cover your future costs.
