You Make the Call: Is a Life Plan Community in Your Future?

April 21, 2016

Even before becoming a teenager, you started to make your own decisions. What clothes to wear, what sports to play or who was to be your best friend. As a senior, you continue to call the shots. You plan your investments, schedule vacations and make time for volunteering. So it only makes sense that you design your ideal living environment.

What is a Life Plan Community?

A Life Plan Community is contemporary senior living—the merging of active senior living and planning for the future. It’s an environment where seniors seeking an active lifestyle discover a breadth of residential options, rich amenities and plenty of opportunities for personal growth. At Summit Vista, you’ll experience a full continuum of care from independent living to assisted living and nursing care.

Why chose a Life Plan Community?

Location. Situated in the center of Salt Lake Valley, only 20 minutes from downtown, Summit Vista will offer residents a location integrated into the surrounding community.

Health. A walkable, vibrant village will make logging in your daily steps a piece of cake. On any given day, your active lifestyle may include lap swimming or water aerobics at the aquatic center, competitive bocce ball, putting contests or gardening in large outdoor spaces. After an active day, a therapeutic soak in a hot tub will contribute to your overall well-being.

Personal growth. Let’s be honest. You’ve spent years earning a living and/or raising children. Now is your chance to find time for the things you love or always wanted to do. On the amenity-rich campus, you can experience woodworking, crafts or spend time in the art studio or computer lab.

Friendship. Research links socialization and longevity. A restaurant, café-style dining venues and a private dining room will give you time to mingle with your friends. Whether it’s bridge, board games or billiards, our campus will offer ample space for hobbies and games.

Convenience. In between lunches, water aerobics and gardening, you’ll want to schedule time to look your best. An on-campus hair and nail salon will make pampering yourself easy and accessible. And if you need to run to the library, bank or convenience store, these onsite amenities are just a walk or a shuttle away. For times when you want to leave Summit Vista’s slice of heaven, full-service transportation will be available to drive you to and from places like Fashion Place, Salt Lake Public Library and Utah Museum of Fine Arts.

Hassle-free living. Gone are the days of clearing out gutters and fixing leaky roofs. At Summit Vista, a maintenance team will tend to homes and common areas. Just think, no more calling your children or asking your neighbor for help!

Peace of mind. Most seniors need to live on a fixed income. At Summit Vista, a monthly fixed fee considers all of your needs. Health care, whether it’s a doctor appointment, short-term rehabilitation or long-term care will be on one convenient, continuum of care campus.

You’ve made some sound decisions over the course of your life. Now it’s time to plan for your future and attain your goal of healthy living and staying well. It’s a milestone decision made easy by Summit Vista. Give us a call at (801)758-3138.
