It puts you in control of your life. You can stay in one place among people you know for the rest of your life. If your health declines, you have lifelong access on campus to the care you need. Family members don’t have to worry about you, and you can enjoy greater peace of mind.

Not all Life Plan Communities are the same. Some require large upfront fees to cover potential future health care costs. Rolling Green Village is a fee-for-service community, which means you pay only for the health care services you use. It also helps keep our entrance fee lower than other types of Life Plan Communities.

You stay in your independent living residence, and your spouse moves into assisted living, memory care or skilled nursing, whichever is the most appropriate. You don’t need to move with your spouse, but you’ll both still be right on the same campus.
