A continuing care retirement community (CCRC), also known as a life plan community, is designed to support older adults throughout every phase of retirement. CCRC’s offer multiple levels of care — including independent living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing — so that residents can easily transition when their needs change without having to relocate to another community. That means the connections and home you make here are yours.

The Value of Houston Independent Living

The goal of moving to a Texas Life Plan community – also known as a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) – is to maintain your independence.That also includes financial independence.

The Buckingham’s CCRC community is an investment in security, peace of mind, health and wellness.

By all measures, The Buckingham retirement community is a wise investment. You’ll pay predictable monthly fees and enjoy financial security, protection from rising health care and long-term care costs, preservation of financial assets, potential tax advantages and permanent care and residency.

In addition to independent living, should you or your spouse’s health needs ever change, you’ll have access to onsite assisted living, memory support, long-term senior rehabilitation services and skilled nursing — all at a predictable cost.

Living at The Buckingham means that if you ever need care, you know exactly where you’ll receive it, who will provide it and what it will cost.

A CCRC That Offers Additional Peace of Mind

No one can predict the future, but you can put a plan in place that offers a lifelong security net for your finances, your health care and your ability to maintain control of your own life. The security net is called Life Care and it’s one of the many benefits of living at The Buckingham senior living community in Houston, TX.

A Life Care plan is a type of contract option that includes a one-time entrance fee, which can offer refundability to your or your estate. These fees, often coupled with a monthly service fee, provides for immediate and guaranteed access to higher levels of care at the community at predictable rates, for life.
