Why should I move to Northcrest?
Moving to Northcrest is a choice that provides you with carefree independent living for the rest of your life; free of the burdens of home maintenance, lawn care, and snow removal. Northcrest Community offers you the opportunity to pursue activities and attend events that perhaps you didn’t previously have the time to do. This includes; volunteering, attending Lifelong Learning classes at Iowa State University, entertaining friends, playing bridge, bowling, golfing, or attending the numerous events available in the Ames community.
Moving to Northcrest provides you with an extended family of residents and staff members that creates our unique atmosphere that makes you feel right at home.
One of the most important and beneficial reasons for you to choose the Northcrest senior living community is the guaranteed Life Care commitment. This commitment is made to each and every resident living at Northcrest.
What is Life Care?
Life Care is a unique concept that provides a reassuring level of financial protection to safeguard against any future medical and cost of living expenses. Northcrest makes a caring commitment to everyone who moves here - that no matter what happens, we will be here to meet your physical and financial needs.
When you come to Northcrest senior independent living, you are guaranteed to have a home and full Life Care for the rest of your life. If you were to move to our Assisted Living Community or the Health Center on a permanent basis, the monthly fee that you are paying for your apartment or townhome will remain the same in Assisted Living and the Health Center. The only additions to the monthly fee are a meal charge and an enhanced level of care fee if required.
With the rising cost of long-term health care, monthly costs for assisted living and nursing care can quickly escalate to amounts in excess of $9,000 per month. Northcrest's Life Care program offers an affordable living alternative to paying catastrophic long-term care expenses. This provides a freedom that empowers our residents to focus on living a full life after retirement.
Northcrest also realizes that some people may outlive their assets. If that happens, our Life Care services provide financial support to the resident. At Northcrest Community, no one is ever asked to leave because of a lack of funds.
