Q: When is the right age to move to a Life
Plan Community?
A: The optimal age to move into a Life Plan
Community, like Kendal at Lexington, varies
based on health, finances and personal preferences.
Generally, individuals often consider
moving in their 70s or early 80s when they are
relatively healthy and can fully enjoy the community's
amenities and social activities. You can
move into Kendal at Lexington as early as 65.
Moving earlier allows for greater access to the
continuum of care services as needs change.

Q: What should you look for in an active
Life Plan Community?
A: When considering a Life Plan Community, it
is important to learn how the lifestyle programming
is implemented throughout the community.
The day-to-day programs, services and experiences
should be unified and well-coordinated
so residents can thrive in the various aspects of
daily living. Key to this is innovative wellness
and fitness programs working in partnership with
38 / RETIRE-VA 2024
therapy services to help facilitate functional
independence. This, coupled with engaging
social, spiritual and vocational opportunities, sets
the stage for an abundant and purposeful lifestyle
experience. Our communities do this, and
Sunnyside has been recognized both nationally
and internationally for its whole-person wellness
focus, and named a top 5 " Best in Wellness " in
North America by the International Council on
Active Aging.

Q: What does it mean when a retirement
community offers Life Care?
A: Life Care at The Glebe means residency,
services and care for life - and all under one
roof. Residents contract in advance for an
apartment or cottage, enjoy community-based
amenities and services, such as a pool, fitness
center, award-winning dining options, art studio,
woodworking shop and have access to onsite
long-term care as physical and cognitive needs
change. As care needs arise, residents remain
on-site, close to friends and neighbors, and move
between Independent Living, Assisted Living,
Memory Care and Nursing Care at The Glebe.
With a Life Care contract monthly fees stay
the same as care and service levels increase.
When residents move to Assisted Living, Memory
Care or Nursing Care, the only additional charge
is for two extra meals per day and any ancillary
costs such as medical supplies and pharmacy
services. While monthly fees don't increase as
care needs increase, the monthly fee continues
to be subject to an annual increase.
Life Care helps shield residents from spiraling
long-term care costs and provides the assurance
that they'll always receive the care they need
at The Glebe - even if they outlive their financial

choice and individualized approaches to care in
