When considering moving to a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CRCC), it is essential to equip yourself with as much information as possible and learn to ask the right questions. We have provided here a list of questions we commonly receive, and we encourage you to read through the Five Myths and Realities of CCRCs report authored by Age Wave.
We also invite you to contact us directly with your questions.
How much does it cost to live at Warwick Forest?
Warwick Forest has two financial plan options; LifeCare or LifePlan. Our LifeCare Plan offers financial protection for your assets and guarantees full healthcare services. Warwick Forest provides access to the entire continuum of care you may need because we are backed by Riverside Health System. The LifePlan agreement is an option for those who wish to self-insure or have long-term care insurance policies. The best way to know which financial plan is best for you is to meet with your marketing counselor who will help you evaluate your personal situation and present you with the recommended options.
Why does Warwick Forest charge an entrance fee?
The Entrance Fee is a one-time, upfront cost for the residence and the agreement that guarantees lifetime residency and access to the continuum of care. The Entrance Fee is based on the size of residence, number of occupants and whether the LifeCare or LifePlan is chosen.
How are the monthly service fees calculated? Do they change?
Monthly service fees are based on the size of the residence, number of occupants and whether the LifeCare or LifePlan agreement is chosen.
I'm not sure I can afford to make this move.
