Fairhaven is a Life Plan Community
By design, Fairhaven allows you to live in the same community throughout your retirement years. As one of the original Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) in the nation, Fairhaven is uniquely qualified to meet your changing health care needs, while providing a multitude of social, recreational, intellectual and spiritual activities. Create your own retirement lifestyle - do the things you want to do! Stay connected with the people and things you love, but set aside time for new friends and pastimes.
There are many reasons why CCRC's, now called "Life Plan
Communities", are appealing to people of retirement age. First of all,
it frees any children from worrying about you. They know you're being
taken care of and in a safe place. There is companionship with your
peers and ample activities to keep you engaged with daily life. Should
the need arise, there is nursing staff on-site 24 hours a day, seven days
a week. All in one location. And you can still have as much independence
as you like.
Nationally, many Life Plan Community residents say not to wait for a crisis to make the move to a retirement community. Consider the lifestyle offered. Experts say that residents who move in at a younger age get the most out of the community, and are more likely to do the things they have dreamed about. Not owning or maintaining a home makes leisure interests or travel easier. All you have to do is lock your door and leave.
