Joe Nolt and his wife Marianne crunched the numbers, did the research, and now want to spread the word. “We’re happy campers, and we want to let others know why,” Joe says.
Lifelong residents of Lancaster County, the Nolts had family and friends living at several area senior living communities, including Willow Valley. “We considered them all,” he notes.
The Nolts chose Willow Valley for its wide variety of opportunities, but primarily for Lifecare, a contract that provides personal and nursing care, if needed, at no additional cost. Joe, who spent his career in insurance, feels people may have a fundamental misconception about Willow Valley.
“People think they can’t afford to live in a place as beautiful as this. But the pricing compares well to other communities. And you get great value, because the costs include a plan for the future you can count on,” he explains.
With nursing home costs rising everyday, Lifecare is a wise way to protect assets you may have spent a lifetime accruing. Long–term care insurance is expensive, and options are diminishing as many insurance companies discontinue these products. With Lifecare, costly premiums are a thing of the past.
“We had long-term care insurance,” notes Joe. “But the Lifecare program was more comprehensive. We were able to drop that plan when we moved to Willow Valley.”
Like many who are looking at senior living communities, at first, the Nolts considered themselves “not ready.” But when they saw what is now their new home, they “fell in love.”
“We enjoy the beauty and creativity of the landscape,” Joe says. “People are warm and friendly, and Willow Valley takes care of things. They look to the future.”
