What is Lakewood Manor?
Lakewood is a continuing care retirement community that inspires active living and a wellness lifestyle. Located in Richmond, Virginia, Lakewood offers the warmth and friendliness of a small town, together with all the conveniences of daily living.
Residents choose to live in a maintenance-free apartment, villa or cottage–and benefit from a wide range of amenities and services that promote independence and optimal health. This includes access to a full continuum of on-site care, including a clinic, assisted living, licensed nursing care, physical therapy and memory support services.
What is Life Care?
Life Care at Lakewood means residency, services and care for life through services and care available on-site at the community. Residents contract to live in a comfortable residence, enjoy community-based amenities and services, and plan, in advance for their future health care needs. As circumstances change, residents remain on-site close to friends and neighbors, receiving services and care through independent living, assisted living and nursing care, according to the resident's needs. Depending on the individual's needs, these health services may be recuperative, short or long-term care.
With Life Care protection, monthly fees continue to be based on the monthly fee for the resident's apartment or cottage as health services are received. Life Care helps shield residents from spiraling health care costs. Resident's monthly fees are subject to annual cost of living increases.
