“Is this too good to be true?”
What’s the catch? Is this too good to be true? These were our initial thoughts after learning about SmartLife. We had explored some retirement communities, but they just didn’t seem to be a fit for our lifestyle. Our independence, love of cooking, our yard, and solitude and privacy when desired were primary determining factors to remain in our home. We were not ready to part with possessions or furnishings that downsizing could require. Our location is preferable to us compared to the settings and age demographics of some retirement villages. As we have now been members of the program for several years, we truly appreciate the relationship with our Lifecare Coordinator. He is very attentive, genuinely interested in our welfare and that of our entire family, without being intrusive. We know he’s there and available. We are also very comfortable with keeping him and the SL team apprised of events and medical issues. We were deeply appreciative of the meals provided when Judy had her surgery. For those exploring their own options, regardless of your preliminary preferences (retirement community living, other), at least consider the SmartLife alternative. Compare all the advantages—convenience and happiness of staying in your home, immediate and long-term financial advantages, comprehensiveness of the SmartLife program vs. Long-Term Care insurance or other options, immediate and lasting peace of mind for you and your future caregivers, Willow Valley amenities, others. After speaking with a SmartLife representative, see if you can talk to some SmartLife members. Ask why they joined and what they like most about it. It’s not for everybody, but everyone considering retirement communities who love living in their home should consider the program.
