Why should I move to Northcrest?
Moving to Northcrest 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 senior living with the opportunity to pursue activities and attend events. This includes; volunteering, attending Lifelong Learning classes at Iowa State University, entertaining friends, playing bridge, bowling, and attending the numerous events available in the Ames community.
Moving to Northcrest provides you with an extended family of residents and staff members that make you feel right at home.
One of the most important and beneficial reasons 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 against future medical and cost of living expenses. Northcrest makes a caring commitment to everyone who moves here. No matter what happens, we will be here to meet your physical and financial needs.
When you come to Northcrest Community, you are guaranteed to have a home and 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, your apartment or townhome monthly fee will remain the same. The only additions to the monthly payment are a meal charge and an enhanced level of care fee if required.
With the rising cost of long-term health care, monthly costs can escalate to over $9,000 per month. Northcrest's Life Care program offers a senior living alternative to paying catastrophic long-term care expenses. This provides a freedom that empowers our residents to focus on living a worry-free 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.
