“If you don’t have a plan for yourself, you’ll be part of someone else’s,” the saying goes. How true … especially as we prepare for life’s later years.

Today’s older adults are living longer, healthier lives than any generation before them. But that also means that someone turning 65 today is much more likely to need long-term care, whether for them or their partner – about a 7 in 10 chance, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. And even if that eventuality is still years down the road, now is the time to plan for it.

“It’s not a question of if, but when, something unexpected will happen – and when it does, you don’t want to be searching for somewhere you can go,” says Martha Williamson, a Mayflower resident and former psychotherapist. “From talking to my clients, I’ve seen that when people don’t plan ahead, they lose the freedom to make choices about their future.”

Acting early to secure your spot in a Life Plan Community ensures you’ll have the options you need, when you need them – without worrying about community waitlists, eligibility restrictions, or volatile market rates for healthcare.  At The Mayflower, our Life Plan gives you that security – and so much more:

  • Maintenance-free living. A quick fix for a leaky faucet? Check. Stress-free housekeeping? Check. Yard upkeep, hurricane prep, transportation? Check. Cross all the worries off your list when you move to The Mayflower – and discover an effortless lifestyle that leaves you free to do more of what you love.
  • A selection of stylish residences. Choose your future home with your lifestyle in mind – from brand-new Waterside Residences … to condo-style living … to single-family Villas – all located close to the best destinations of downtown Winter Park. And no matter which you select, all come with the same access to everything our Life Plan community has to offer.
  • Exceptional amenities. When you live at The Mayflower, everything you need is close to home: the library, the hair salon, the Fitness Center, and – of course – top-quality cuisine at our three on-campus restaurants. And with an array of stimulating programs and activities, from sommelier-led wine tastings to scenic kayak excursions, there’s always something new to explore.
  • Assured long-term care. At The Mayflower, our Life Plan includes full access to a continuum of award-winning healthcare – from preventive care and physical therapy to skilled nursing, assisted living and memory support – right on campus. It’s one comprehensive solution that ensures you’ll always have the choices you need.

All those advantages add up to something you can’t find anywhere else: complete peace of mind for the future, in a vibrant community designed around you.
