Royal Oaks is a paid sponsor of Sonoran Living.

What's the Difference between a 55+ Community and Royal Oaks? Many retirees have heard about, and perhaps considered moving to a 55+ community - with services and amenities designed to make life easier, there's a definite appeal. However, not as many retirees are aware of communities like Royal Oaks, where you live independently in homes or apartments in a large neighborhood setting and all maintenance is done for you, fitness opportunities abound, chef-prepared meals are included, activities galore beckon (poker anyone? wine club before Happy Hour? how about line dancing?), and transportation for fun and necessity are just a phone call away.

The main difference between Royal Oaks and a 55+ community is, on the Royal Oaks campus, assisted living, memory support, and nursing care are tucked into the campus in the event your health needs ever require it. If the services and amenities of a 55+ community appeal to you, check out CCRCs, also known as Life Plan communities, which offer a myriad of services and amenities, plus the peace-of-mind that comes with knowing your community is equipped to provide on-campus long-term care or nursing care services if and when you should need them.

Royal Oaks is a not-for-profit Life Plan Community and offers an abundance of options for living, wellness, and care. The key concept is that a resident will never need to move again, regardless of healthcare needs that may arise over time. And if you run out of funds because you outlive your money, our not-for-profit Foundation pays your monthly service package so you will always live in a splendid environment. Speaking of splendid environments, Royal Oaks new neighborhood in development, Inspirata Pointe, will enhance this already posh community with additional restaurants and 156 deluxe villas and apartment homes.

Royal Oaks has numerous advantages that 55+ communities and even other Life Plan communities don't offer. For example, upon returning from a hospital stay, Medicare providers on campus are available to get you back on your feet. It's easy heading upstairs to our on-site dental clinic; and joining in a balance or yoga class in our Fitness Center may help keep you from repeating a hospital visit.

The RNs who staff our wellness centers have a mission to keep you independent and provide services and suggestions along those lines. Our 24-hour security staff professionals are also EMTs, assisting with small or less-small emergencies that may arise.

If you need more help, temporarily or permanently, all those services and center are here on our 50+ acre campus.In a Life Plan Community, you pay a one-time entrance fee and a monthly fee that does not increase as you or your spouse need a higher level of living. You can live in luxury without worrying about running out of money due to ever-rising long-term-care costs. An exploratory visit with us will explain the various financial options, allowing if you have long-term-care insurance, and other factors in your unique situation.
