Protecting Assets through Lifecare

Masonic Village at Sewickley

You have worked long and hard to be financially comfortable during your retirement years. The family "nest egg" has been secured, and you have prepared an investment plan that should protect those valuable assets. Suddenly, a health crisis changes everything! Many people are not aware of the potential costs involved in long-term care. This care can cost as much as $100,000 a year. As medical advancements keep us living longer than ever before, more and more are facing the very real possibility of spending time in a nursing facility. In fact, numerous statistics show that more than half of us will need some amount of nursing home care during our senior years. With nearly one in five Pennsylvanians in their retirement years, it is possible that most are not as financially prepared as we think.

This is one of the reasons so many are seeking out the peace of mind that a Lifecare community can bring. As a Lifecare community, Masonic Village at Sewickley allows retirees to protect their "nest eggs" by guaranteeing that residents living in retirement living will continue paying the same monthly rate, even if they should someday need assisted living or nursing care. The key is to make the move before a pre-existing health condition prevents the possibility of a full Lifecare agreement.

Masonic Village is now over 90 percent occupied and will begin a waiting list in the near future. The demand is increasing as more people plan for their futures. Of course the lifestyle and amenities make it a great decision no matter what the reasons may be. With two restaurants, a large indoor pool and fitness center, entertainment, activities, library, computer room, educational programs and more, retirees of all ages are turning to retirement community living.

If you have not toured the village, you owe it to yourself to see what everyone is talking about. Call (866) 872-0664 to schedule a personal tour or to make a reservation for our upcoming open houses, Aug. 29 or Sept. 21, at 10 a.m.
