Q. Who sponsors and manages Vantage House?
A. We're managed by Life Care Services, LLC (LCS). LCS has been a leader in the senior living industry for nearly four decades and currently serves more than 23,000 residents in over 80 communities nationwide.
Q. Why is "Life Care" so important?
A. Life Care eliminates worries about the cost and availability of future health care. It also allows you to more accurately plan for the future, while guarding your assets from the drain of paying "outright" for skilled nursing care. At Vantage House, you're assured of unlimited access to a complete continuum of living . including Assisted Living and Comprehensive Nursing in our on-site Medicare-certified Health Center.
Q. When is the right time to plan a move to Vantage House?
A. We consistently hear this comment from people once they're settled at Vantage House: "I just wish I had moved here sooner." We recommend that you move while you can fully take advantage of the opportunities and friendships of the all-inclusive lifestyle at Vantage House. Moving now also eliminates the burden of home maintenance and upkeep.
To enjoy the benefits of Life Care at Vantage House, you must move while you are active and independent. Don't make the mistake of waiting too long. If you wait-and you're faced with a medical challenge-someone else may have to make decisions about your future and your first choice may not be an option. In that case, you risk living in a care center that is not of the quality you desire or in the location you prefer.
Q. What would my family think if I moved to Vantage House?
A. Many Vantage House residents view moving here as "a gift to their children." Instead of leaving the burden of future decision-making to your family, a move to Vantage House is a pro-active plan for the future.
