What is a Life Plan Community?
As a Life Plan Community, Givens Highland Farms offers various living choices and health care services, all on one campus. Also known as Continuing Care Retirement Communities, or CCRCs, Life Plan Communities provide additional peace of mind for active seniors who appreciate the assurance of quality healthcare if and when needed.
Givens Highland Farms provides licensed and accredited independent living, services and amenities, and health services allowing residents to create a plan for future care and financial security.
In addition to these health services, Givens Highland Farms has a Home Care program, supporting residents with additional services when they desire to remain in their homes for as long as possible. When you live at Givens Highland Farms, you can focus on enjoying the life you love rather than worrying about the details of home maintenance, chores, and future care.
