As a member, a portion of the fees paid to the community are attributable toward medical expenses. The IRS has ruled it is appropriate for a CCRC or Life Plan Community to determine the amount of deductibility based on the medical expenses of the community. The final decision to take the deduction should be made by the member of his/her tax advisor.
Once you move to Longwood, a long term care insurance policy may no longer be needed. Do not cancel this policy until we have had a conversation about the benefits of these policies and you have physically moved into the community. Sometimes the benefits outweigh the costs.
This refers to the various levels of health care a resident may need throughout his/her lifetime. These levels range from residential living (where a resident needs no assistance), to Personal Care (where a resident needs assistance with bathing, dressing and medications) to skilled nursing care (requiring medical care or rehabilitation). Residents are able to transfer between levels of care as their condition warrants.
