Consistency of Care
Smith Senior Living is the sponsoring organization serving Smith Village and Smith Crossing, the first two Life Plan Communities, formerly Continuing Care Retirement Communities, in the southwest sector of Metro Chicago.
A Life Plan Community allows peace of mind for older adults by offering Independent Living, Assisted Living, Alzheimer’s/Memory Support, and Skilled Nursing Care and Rehabilitation all on one campus. Residents of Smith Village and Smith Crossing know they will have access to a full spectrum of services should their healthcare needs change.
For example, a healthy, vital older adult may move into Independent Living to enjoy the activities and amenities. But if a medical condition or injury makes day-to-day tasks difficult, that resident can receive care in the Assisted Living and Memory Support, or Skilled Nursing Care programs.
In a true Life Plan Community, there is never a need to make decisions about housing during a medical crisis—a scenario that can put adult children or a family member in the uncomfortable role of needing to choose a residence for a parent or loved one. One can rest easy knowing that there will be professional, compassionate care on hand, no matter what the future brings.
At both Smith Village and Smith Crossing, residents receive a lifetime care benefit when they move into an Independent Living residence. This is a type of insurance that helps contain the cost of future care if it becomes necessary.
