Duncaster Pioneers the Nation’s First and Only LifeCare On The Go Residency Option

Duncaster CCRC - Wednesday, April 06, 2016

BLOOMFIELD, CT, Apr. 6, 2016 – A new concept in life-long health care has been pioneered by Bloomfield’s own Duncaster and is being introduced this month.

Duncaster’s LifeCare On The Go offers members all residency benefits of living in the Bloomfield, CT lifecare community, including lifetime long-term care, whether or not they live at Duncaster.LifeCare On The Go™ combines the security of a lifecare benefit (similar to long-term care insurance) with the optional use of a furnished Duncaster apartment home. Participants can reserve these accommodations for as much as six months in a calendar year.

Active Older AdultsActive Engaged Older Adults“We created this concept with the interests of today’s mobile and active seniors in mind.We saw a demand for it and the response has already been very enthusiastic,” says Carol Ann McCormick, Duncaster’s VP Sales and Marketing.Her two decades in senior housing suggested the idea to her.“Every day I see people looking for the security of knowing that all their future worries will be taken care of.Some are not ready to move to secure those benefits. For them, this is a perfect solution. It’s why we created LifeCare On The Go™. It addresses the similar ‘what ifs’ as long-term care insurance.But, it offers stronger benefits than most long-term care insurance policies.

Once someone meets the health and financial qualifications to become a LifeCare On The Goresident they never have to worry about where they will receive assisted living services or long-term skilled nursing care. The cost is covered by their LifeCare On The Go™ membership.It also gives them access to primary care, in-patient rehab, outpatient rehab or even memory care right here at Duncaster. In addition, they never have to worry about being eligible for residency at Duncaster in the future because they became full-fledged residents by joining LifeCare On The Go™.

Other benefits include all Duncaster amenities:

  • Tax deduction eligibility for the cost of LifeCare On The Go™
  • Use of a furnished apartment home and carport for up to six months
  • Access to Duncaster’s on-site primary care practice staffed by board-certified geriatricians and advanced practice registered nurses
  • Wellness and fitness programs and classes
  • Aquatic and fitness center membership
  • Arts and culture programs
  • Continuing education programs
  • Dining allowance with options that range from carry-out meals to restaurant dining in a casual bistro setting to a traditional dining room

In addition, members of LifeCare On The Go have the right to move to Duncaster at a future date as they are covered under a full residency agreement beginning on the date they join LifeCare On The Go™.

A limited number of LifeCare On The Gomemberships are available.
