When you enter a retirement community, you may be fit and healthy, but as you age, there may come a time when you require additional health services. On-site health care is an important benefit providing convenience and peace of mind to you and your family. Here are the top 3 reasons why it’s important to choose a retirement community that provides on site care.
Providing a continuum of care is the foundation of a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) like Baywoods of Annapolis. CCRC means that the community provides services for:
- Independent Living
- Assisted Living
- Skilled Nursing Care
Why is this important?
- Limits your need to travel. For you, the retiree, it means that you will likely have most of your health care needs handled in the community in which you live. This eliminates most the need for most residents to travel for:
- Doctor’s Appointments
- Wellness Visits
- Coordination of Services
- Comfort, Convenience, Friends. Imagine being transported to another facility where your spouse and friends cannot readily visit you during your treatment. When you enter our short-term rehabilitation facility or assisted living facility, you’ll be within the same community, with the same friends, getting the care and support that you need. Your spouse or significant other won’t have to travel or shuttle back and forth to visit you – they’ll just take a simple walk across campus.
- 24/7 Support. Health issues arise at unexpected times. With on-site care, you’ll enjoy your independence, while having peace of mind that onsite medical services are readily available anytime you (or your spouse/significant other) need them.
