A local non-profit organization is developing a new, lifestyle-driven community for people 60 and older to serve the Humboldt County area. It will be a Life Plan Community offering all levels of living, along with access to a wide range of amenities and services on one campus.
We are currently negotiating to purchase the Arcata site, a beautiful setting with easy access to area restaurants, health-care, entertainment, and amenities. We have an alternative location in McKinleyville which would take considerably longer to develop.
Construction at the Arcata site is anticipated to begin in fall 2023 with move-in by summer of 2025.
The community will include approximately 80 cottages and apartments and 24 residences in home-like memory care.
A person can spend the rest of their life within a Life Plan Community accessing higher levels of care as needed.
The amenities currently being considered are multiple dining venues; fitness/wellness center, arts/crafts studio, multi-use spaces for meetings, events, and other activities, walkways, bike trails, and outdoor areas for recreation, a picnic area, social/entertainment events.
Residents pay an upfront, one-time entrance fee and an ongoing monthly service fee that covers a wide array of services, programs, and access to amenities. If residents need a higher level of care such as assisted living or memory care they will receive a discounted rate on those services. Residents have the lifetime right to live there, regardless of changes in their financial circumstances.
Monthly fees cover your residence, utilities (electric/water/sewer), cable and internet service, home maintenance (appliances, plumbing, lighting), a flexible dining plan, housekeeping; transportation, a full calendar of cultural, educational, social, wellness events, security, assistance with health care coordination, and access to community amenities.
