What makes a Life Plan Community?

    A Life Plan Community (also known as a CCRC), like Pickering Manor, provides the most comprehensive offering of all, several types of living options conveniently on one campus: Independent Living, Assisted Living or Personal Care, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing (long-term and short-term).

    Because the needs and interests of the residents are different, each neighborhood is specifically designed to support the needs of the residents based on the level of care needed. We also focus on overall wellness and a healthy, active lifestyle – all while being connected to the community.

    Choosing a Life Plan Community provides peace of mind to many retirees who live independently today but seek the comfort of knowing that personal care and/or skilled medical care is available when needed. Having all these living options in one place truly defines “age in place.”

    Getting Help When You Need It

    Sometimes, physical limitations can make things like taking a shower, getting dressed, or grooming more difficult than they once were. With a personal care home, staff is available to help you with these tasks while helping you maintain a sense of independence.

    The Pickering Manor staff also helps with regular health checks and ensures you have the appropriate medications for your ongoing needs.

    Ease your mind knowing if you one day need full care; we have a Skilled Nursing Neighborhood with 24-hour nursing and a Memory Care neighborhood that was designed for those who are living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

    Additionally, we offer short term care in our subacute rehab neighborhood. Not ready for Personal Care?

    Check out Pickering Manor Apartments or Cottages and enjoy worry-free living. Whatever the need, we’ve got you covered!
