What if I have long-term care insurance, how does that work?

Those who have long-term care insurance sometimes find the Fee-For-Service contract anattractive option.

If you have questions specific to your situation, please call us at 1-877-933-6699 and we’ll be happy to address them.

What types of contracts does Rydal Park offer?

Rydal Park offers two basic types of contracts: Life Care and Fee-For-Service.

  • Life Care means that, should the need for Personal Care, Memory Support, or Skilled Nursing Care ever arise, you’re able to move to the community’s onsite care center without experiencing an increase in your monthly fee. For those who have entered into a Life Care Agreement, care at these rates is available for an unlimited period of time.
  • Fee-For-Service means that you have access to all the same healthcare services as those who have entered into a Life Care Agreement. Should you require additional care, you will pay the current rate for the services you use.

What if my spouse and I have different healthcare needs?

In the event of a change in health for you or your spouse, the last thing you need is the stress of added financial burden. If one member of a couple requires care and moves to the care center, the other member may remain in the independent living home.

If you’ve entered into a Life Care Agreement, you’ll continue to pay only the regular monthly fee for the independent living home, plus ancillary items at the Care Center (medical supplies, medications, etc.).

If you’ve entred into a Fee-For-Service Agreement, you will continue to pay the regular monthly fee for your independent living home. Additionally, you’ll be responsible for the care services you use, as well as charges for ancillary items at the Care Center for the second person.

What happens if my healthcare needs change once I move in?

If you have entered into a Life Care Agreement, then your healthcare needs will be taken care of with no increase in monthly expenses. Whether this includes moving to the onsite care center, Personal Care, Memory, Support, or Skilled Nursing, you can rest assured that you’ll be cared for indefinitely at your regular monthly rate, plus ancillary items (medical supplies, medications, etc.).

If you opt to live at Rydal on a Fee for Service basis, you will still have access to all these services, but will pay the going rate for the services you use.

How does a CCRC different from a rental community or 55+?

CCRCs and rental / 55+ communities all offer independent living options, active lifestyles and amenities. But what separates CCRCs is that they also offer a spectrum of healthcare services onsite, including long-term care, should they become necessary   In essence, there is no need to make a second move should a care need arise in the future.

Why move to a CCRC?

  • “Right-size” your lifestyle by eliminating the expense, effort, cost, and uncertainty of owning and maintaining a home.
  • Healthcare on demand as well as a substantial cost savings for most people, thanks to the cost efficiencies of a Life Care contract.
  • Proactive planning saves children or family members from having to make a need-based decision on your behalf at a time down the road.
  • Close community of peers, and the security of livingg within that community, regardless of changes in health circumstances
  • Studies consistently show that CCRC residents tend to live longer, more active lives.

What is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)?

CCRCs are self-contained residential communities that offer adults 62 and over a worry-free and maintenance-free living. Residents enjoy an active, independent lifestyle as well as access to a continuum of long term care services like Short-Term Rehab, Memory Support, Personal Care/Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing, should a need arise.
