What Kind of Retirement Community is Right for You?
If you are considering moving into a retirement community, I can help you better understand the legal, healthcare, and financial implications of your choices. I can also review the Continuing Care (Life Care) contract with you and help you to negotiate the best possible terms. Together, we will consider these kinds of questions:
- What are the different kinds of retirement communities?
- Would it be better to buy, pay an entrance fee, or rent?
- What should you look for in a Continuing Care or Life Care contract?
- Are the costs of assisted living or long-term care services included?
- Should I keep my current long-term care insurance policy?
As an Elder Law attorney, I am familiar with retirement communities throughout the Bay Area. I can help you decide if you prefer to age in place, move closer to your children, or move into a retirement community. I frequently speak to community and professional groups about retirement living options. “Staying Put, Moving On” and “The Real Cost of Retirement Living” are two of my topics. Please call me to discuss your situation.
