Lakewood At Home is a new program available in the Richmond area that will coordinate and provide long-term care services in your home should you ever need them. As a member of Lakewood At Home, you can enjoy peace of mind, knowing your assets are protected and your future is secure.

How Do I know if Lakewood at Home is the right choice for me?

Ask yourself these five questions:

Am I healthy and independent?

Lakewood at Home is designed for independent, vibrant individuals aged 55 and over who want to be proactive about planning for the future. With a robust social and wellness activities program built in, Lakewood at Home offers the opportunity to live the life you envision.

Would I prefer to stay at home and age in place?

Up to 90% of older adults report they would prefer to stay in their own homes rather than move into a facility. Lakewood at Home offers the long-term care and amenities of a continuing care retirement community in your own home. You can rest assured that Lakewood at Home’s care coordination team will facilitate any needed services to ensure you are able to remain in your home as you age. Lakewood at Home is affiliated with the renowned Lakewood Community, a LifeSpire of Virginia continuing care retirement community in Richmond’s west end. Though our members live in their own homes, they are able to enjoy the state-of-the-art facilities and amenities available to Lakewood Residents, including the brand new pool (coming Fall 2019) and world-class dining options.

Do I want to protect my financial assets?

Long-term care can cost more than $100,000 per year. Even if you don’t need care right now, you will need a plan in place to protect your assets from unexpected costs. Medicare and private health insurances do not cover custodial care.  Long-term care insurance can defray some of the cost of long-term care, but it often comes with daily limits lower than the actual cost of care, long waiting periods, and strict criteria for accessing coverage. With Lakewood at Home, there is no waiting period and you can start services once you demonstrate a need for assistance with one activity of daily living. If you already have long-term care insurance and would like to keep it, Lakewood at Home offers plans that blend nicely with your long-term care insurance to assure that you never have to spend down your assets to access care.

Is it important to me not to be a burden on my family?

On average, adult children spend 24 hours per week providing care to their aging parents. Often, this responsibility is carried alongside a full-time job and the demands of raising a family. Caregiver stress can lead to negative health outcomes, depression, and anxiety and can put undue stress on familial relationships. You want to enjoy your family as you age and maintain your most precious relationships. That’s where your personal Lakewood at Home Care Coordinator comes in. All members of our Care Coordination team are highly qualified licensed professionals with a clinical background who are intimately familiar with local resources available to older adults. Your personal care coordinator will get to know you and your family while you are healthy and independent and will take the time to truly understand your needs and desired lifestyle. When it is time to access services, your care coordinator will assist you in taking care of details and be your advocate by arranging and scheduling services and performing all follow-up to ensure the services provided met the highest quality standards. Your care coordinator is also there to answer any questions you may have about your care needs, services and community resources.

Would I like peace of mind when considering the future?

No one knows what tomorrow may hold. Membership in Lakewood at Home ensures you and your family that you have a plan for accessing, arranging and paying for long-term care services you may need as you age. Live the life you envision by investing in this peace of mind now, to ensure that you age with dignity and self-determination.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, Lakewood at Home may be the answer to your long-term care planning needs. Call us today to attend an upcoming seminar to get answers to your questions and learn more about our innovative program.
