Simply put, a Life Plan Community (also known as a continuing care retirement community or CCRC) is a community for older adults that offers independent living residences and access to higher levels of care all on one campus.

Independent residences are typically outfitted with the latest in home fits and finishes and offer the freedom of maintenance-free living. For a set monthly fee, so much is included: fresh dining, housekeeping, engaging amenities, and a myriad of cultural, social, educational, fitness and wellness programs.

Should a time come when extra support would be beneficial, care options such as assisted living and skilled nursing are available right on campus.

Choosing to move to a Life Plan Community is about more than a maintenance-free lifestyle and having a plan in place for future care needs. If you are a proactive person, it’s about setting yourself up to ensure you are living life to the fullest. By having more time to do what you want to do — not what you have to do. By expanding your opportunities to be socially connected. By living in an environment designed to support total wellness. And, ultimately, by having security and peace of mind for you and those who love you.

A 55+ community offers independent living homes that usually include a maintenance-free lifestyle and a campus with common spaces and amenities. A Life Plan Community such as The Terraces at Summitview does the same, and, in addition, it offers various care options on campus. This means that if the health of you or your spouse ever changes, care options are right at hand.

The Terraces at Summitview offers independent living apartments in a wide range of sizes and floor plans. All homes feature modern fits and finishes, and some have private patios or balconies. And, of course, all residents have access to a wealth of amenities across our 10-acre campus.

Pets are limited to emotional support and service animals. Please talk to a sales counselor about your specific situation.

Absolutely not. Independent living at The Terraces is just that: independent. You decide how to live your life, structure your day and pursue what’s most important to you. And your residence is your private space. 

We believe strongly in the benefits of living in a community setting with easy access to new friends, neighbors, interest groups and social events. But there is never any pressure to participate. You can partake in community life to whatever extent you desire.

Our beautiful 10-acre campus has plenty of amenities. Our fully equipped fitness center, indoor endless pool, community gardens and walking paths make it easy to stay active. Club rooms help you to pursue your hobbies. In addition, we have a library, salon and performance auditorium for live entertainment, meetings, movies, lectures, choral group concerts and special events.

Eating well is a cornerstone of our wellness approach. This means healthy food prepared from scratch with fresh ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible. We feature a balanced offering of gourmet cuisine and classic comfort foods. 

Flexible dining points can be used when you like for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you like to eat out regularly, travel, visit with family or stay home and cook on occasion, you won’t be paying for a set meal schedule that you aren’t using.  

The Terraces at Summitview residents are very active with a wealth of interests! Between the work of our Life Enrichment team to create programs and resident-led interest groups and committees, there is something for everyone.

Some examples include:
  • Group excursions to local points of interests and various popular restaurants
  • Numerous clubs and interest groups, including card groups, Bible study and choral group
  • Many fitness programs, such as aquatic exercises, fit and fun seated classes, Tai Chi, strength and endurance
  • Weekly socials
  • Technology education classes
  • Various resident-led committees that shape community life
  • Spiritual and religious gatherings and programs

As an independent living resident, you will pay a monthly fee and a one-time $2,500 community fee. Monthly fees vary depending on the size and type of home you choose. For most residences, dining, weekly housekeeping and utilities are included. 

Please contact our sales counselors to learn more about available floor plans, fees and details of our contract.

We are familiar with several area downsizing and move management companies that specialize in helping older adults. They can provide tremendous help throughout the process with sorting, organizing, disposing of unwanted items, packing for the move, space planning for your new home and even unpacking. We are happy to offer referrals to these providers.

The benefit of a Life Plan Community such as The Terraces at Summitview is that you have options right on campus for future care needs. We offer not only independent living residences but also assisted living and a skilled nursing center that can help with short-term recovery from a health event or a long-term care need.

No, The Terraces is not a traditional nursing home. It is a Life Plan Community, where the majority of residents live independently. We offer independent living residences and care options — assisted living and skilled nursing care — should they be needed on one campus. Our care options include short-stay rehabilitation nursing for people who have been discharged from a hospital stay but are not yet strong enough to return to their homes.

In our independent living homes (sometimes also called “residential living”), no caregiver assistance for help with activities of daily living is included as part of the standard monthly fee. No one is precluded from our independent living homes based on any protected category. We welcome everyone. Each independent living resident has the ability to make separate arrangements for caregiver services either by hiring private in-home caregivers or contracting for additional services through their HumanGood community (if such services are offered).

It's normal to wonder if you’re ready to move. Understanding what being ready really means will help you make a decision that feels right for you. At times, people feel like they are waiting for a sign, a special birthday or circumstance. But the truth is, once you understand what a Life Plan Community is — and, just as importantly, what it’s not — the decision will become less fraught. Don’t forget to ask other people who have made the move about how they came to their decision — no doubt what you will hear is that they wish they had done it sooner.

A major benefit of the Life Plan Community model is that it offers access to higher levels of care should you ever need them.
