The Merrimack Valley’s Only Lifecare Community | North Andover, MA

Make the one move that ensures peace of mind.

All Life Plan Communities (also known as continuing care retirement communities or CCRCs) offer a continuum of healthcare services. But not all Life Plan Communities offer LifeCare — guaranteed access to the community’s full continuum of care for life, with rates that remain stable and no surprise expenses. As the Merrimack Valley’s only LifeCare community, Edgewood offers a distinct advantage — the priceless peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ll be able to remain in the community you love even if your needs change. Read on to learn more about LifeCare and discover why we say Edgewood is the only move you’ll need to make.

“Choosing to stay in your home with an outside agency for care isn’t realistic. You or your family will be dealing with constantly changing staff, scheduling issues, and other hassles. At Edgewood, I know care will be here for me if and when I need it.”

Roberta W., resident

The Value of Lifecare

The only plan that guarantees care for life.

LifeCare is a type of residency contract that comes with some significant benefits. First and foremost, LifeCare guarantees you’ll have unlimited, lifetime priority access to all levels of care at Edgewood. This includes assisted living, memory support, short-term rehabilitation, and long-term skilled nursing care right here on our campus.

LifeCare also provides financial stability and a way to protect your assets. With LifeCare, you’ll pay a one-time entrance fee that is 90% refundable through our Return of Capital Plan™. Then, you’ll pay a predictable monthly fee that covers guaranteed residency at the community, your meal plan, amenities and activities, maintenance, most utilities, and our on-campus healthcare services. There are no surprise expenses and the monthly rate for services remains stable regardless of the level of care you need. This gives you a measure of protection from rising healthcare costs. Plus, you may realize certain tax advantages.*
LifeCare gives you and your family priceless peace of mind in two more important ways:

  • Your family will never be faced with having to find care for you in a crisis.
  • If your financial circumstances change through no fault of your own, LifeCare guarantees you’ll be able to remain at Edgewood and receive the care you need for life.

To learn more about LifeCare, download our LifeCare brochure or call 978-725-3300 and speak with a sales counselor.

*The IRS has, in the past, allowed a portion of the entrance fee and monthly fees to be deducted as pre-paid medical expenses. Consult your tax advisor for guidance and information about your personal situation.

“Move before you
need to!”

That’s the voice of experience from an Edgewood resident. John and his wife moved to independent living at Edgewood to be closer to family and enjoy the carefree lifestyle. But when an unexpected health crisis arose for John’s wife while he was out of town — and just one month after moving in — Edgewood took care of everything. Read their story on our blog.
