What is Lifecare?

Serving Washington, D.C. and Virginia

Lifecare sets us apart: Learn why in this video.

Health care security is a major reason why people choose a continuing care retirement community. Financial security is the reason they choose a Lifecare community. While Washington, D.C., debates health care, the cost of long-term care rises—often exceeding $100,000 a year. A Lifecare retirement community offers a practical way to prepare for a health challenge while controlling its expense.

The Lifecare program at Shenandoah Valley Westminster-Canterbury provides you with a full continuum of care right on campus: independent living, private assisted living and skilled nursing residences, with memory care and rehabilitation. With Lifecare, your initial entrance fee and monthly service fee ensure access to these services with minimal change in your monthly fee. You don’t pay a higher rate, even if you need a higher level of care. Lifecare helps you plan, because you’ll know your costs in advance. In fact, Lifecare may offer you significant tax advantages.

On a personal level, Lifecare means that couples don’t have to be miles apart when one partner faces a health crisis. Loved ones are close at hand, a few steps away, to provide support. That security is beyond measure.
