Today’s senior living landscape is littered with all kinds of financial options, many requiring you to accurately forecast your future health care needs in order to get the best value. 

But at fee-for-service communities like Siena Lakes, a new senior living community opening soon in North Naples, no “crystal ball” is needed. Their pay-as-you-go approach to care provides the best value for today with just as much security for tomorrow.

Better than life care

It’s impossible to know how much, if any, additional care you’ll need as you get older. Yet life care communities require you to pay for those services now, even while you’re living an active, healthy lifestyle. That could add up to thousands of unnecessary dollars being wasted every year you remain independent.

At fee-for-service communities, on the other hand, you only pay for advanced care like assisted living, memory care, or skilled nursing if and when you need it. This approach lets you hold on to your hard-earned money and stay in complete control of your finances.

Support for your health and wellness

Communities like Siena Lakes don’t just hold off on collecting money for care you may never need, they provide a host of services to help you maintain and improve your physical, social, and emotional well-being.

Siena Lakes will include an on-site medical center led by a physician who specializes in senior health. The doctor and expert staff will meet with you to discuss your wellness goals and then help you build a plan to achieve them. And unlike many medical practices today, Siena Lakes’ practitioners will get to know you on a personal level to ensure you get the customized care and attention you deserve.

Healthy amenities for daily living

Some senior living neighborhoods think that providing their community members with a pool and fitness center is enough. But the philosophy behind Siena Lakes is different. The community will be built in such a way that you can improve your well-being simply by going about your daily life.

Well-designed paved paths will wind around campus so you can walk, jog, cycle, or exercise your canine companion in beautiful tranquility. Siena Lakes’ on-site restaurants will offer an array of healthy menu choices that make it easy to eat clean or count calories. Items to support special dietary needs and preferences will also be available. A personal trainer will be on hand at the fitness center to help you achieve your personal fitness goals, and fun classes like water aerobics and water volleyball will make your time at the luxurious outdoor pool a fun and refreshing opportunity to exercise.

A real sense of community

It’s vital to stay connected to peers and form strong bonds of friendship and community. Those who do so are proven to enjoy better overall health. Siena Lakes will make it easy by offering plenty of opportunities to socialize. In addition to cheerful dining venues and comfortable communal sitting areas, Siena Lakes will host happy hours and provide places to play cards, games, shoot pool, or just enjoy a movie together. Dedicated staff members will also be available to help residents establish clubs where neighbors with similar interests can connect and enjoy a shared hobby or passion.

Staving off the need for care

By providing so many wellness resources, Siena Lakes will aim to help residents enjoy many years of health and independence and avoid costly advanced care. Unlike life care communities, Siena Lakes encourages you to keep money for unknown future health care needs right where it belongs: in your wallet.
