Many people ask, “Just what is a Life Plan Community?” Quite simply, a Life Plan Community (also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community) gives you the long-term peace of mind of knowing that if your health needs change, you’ll have access to a full continuum of exceptional senior health care services right on the community’s campus.

All Smith Crossing residents can move seamlessly between Independent Living and Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing. We also offer Short-Term Rehabilitation services to Smith Crossing residents and those in the surrounding community. You’ll remain in familiar surroundings, close to family and friends, and caregivers whom you’ve come to know and trust.

For people tired of living alone in a house that was once full of family, an Independent Living community offers social interaction and meaningful activities. For people who don’t want to cook for themselves, many retirement communities, including Smith Crossing, offer prepared meals in restaurant-style dining rooms. And for people whose families worry about their safety, Independent Living communities generally have staff on-site 24/7.

We encourage residents to participate in the community’s resident council – a special committee focused on different aspects of community life. Residents are able to actively participate in decisions that affect programming, activities, outings and more.
