How will my life be different if I move to a Life Plan Community like Carsins Run?

There are many gifts that come with moving to a Life Plan Community, with one of the greatest being the “gift of community” to a spouse should you pass on before them. Residents are part of a community where close friendships mean close proximity.

After the loss of a partner, you know that there will be a community of friends and staff nearby to comfort and support you through the difficult days ahead which will make this transition easier. There are activities to keep you engaged and someone to have dinner with.

Plus, on-site counselors will be available to offer professional support. As a staff member in a community, I have watched women within an hour after the loss of a spouse gather their chairs around one of the residents and just hold her hand and allow her to begin to grieve. She was never alone.

The other part of this gift is knowing your loved one can receive professional healthcare services at Carsins Run should they need them.
