In a recent article in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine, The Marshes of Skidaway
Island was highlighted as being one of the modern continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) that focus on providing residents with resort-like amenities, advanced healthcare, and luxurious lifestyles. We’re thankful of the recognition because we strive each and every day to deliver exceptional care and quality services for all of our residents.
If you are considering a move to a community for senior living in Savannah, here are a few points from the article that may help you make the best decision for your needs.
The Marshes Offers an Affordable Living Alternative
One of the advantages of moving into the Marshes is that doing so gives you an easy and effective way to manage your money. While there is an entrance fee, the Marshes refunds 90% of the amount to either the resident in the event they move, or to their estate. The monthly maintenance fee covers all of the day-to-day living expenses, including meals, cable TV, utilities, weekly cleaning services, property taxes, on- and off-campus activities and transportation, and an emergency medical response system. Paying just one bill every month makes it easier to enjoy a more comfortable quality of life.
Luxury Comes Standard
At The Marshes of Skidaway Island, the campus features an abundance of luxurious amenities that help encourage social interaction. The hub of the campus is the Island Club. Here, seniors have access to a robust library, an Internet café, a ballroom, a cocktail lounge, private and public dining rooms, and more.
The Marshes also enjoys a lush and beautifully-landscaped campus that lends an atmosphere of vacation-like enthusiasm to the air. Fragrant flowers, verdant green foliage, and towering, moss-draped oaks coat the campus with glorious color all year long, and because the Marshes backs up to the woods of Skidaway Island State Park, there’s plenty of privacy.
Live Life Your Way
At the Marshes, residents can customize their units as they see fit, barring the removal of any load-bearing walls. Residents can customize their homes’ carpets, wall colors, and more so they can create the home they’ve always dreamed about. Family heirlooms, personal furniture, and pets are also allowed. We know how important these things are to our residents, so we do everything we can to accommodate them.
Healthcare When and Where You Need It
Providing a quality health and wellness service is the hallmark of The Marshes of Skidaway Island. We offer in-home health care and hospice services as well as assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing at our on-campus health facility called The Oaks. In the event that a resident needs to be hospitalized at one of the nearby medical facilities, they will have a guaranteed room waiting for them at The Oaks upon their return so they can recover closer to home.
