Why Life Plan Humboldt is Important To Me
I believe that seniors in our community should have more choices when it comes to maintaining their independence. Living in a conventional residential house or a nursing home might not fit with current or future lifestyle choices for many in our community transitioning to the next phase in life.
The Lifecare Humboldt project’s intent is to offer a novel paradigm for living conditions in Humboldt County, from maintaining independence to potential assisted living, to advanced support. A person can spend the rest of their lives within this community, accessing higher levels of care as needed while having a feeling of place and familiarity of surroundings.
Our community has benefitted from the level of service available here and it only stands to reason that the fastest growing demographic should have the same opportunities. I personally think it unimaginable that as we age, we might have to consider leaving the area because the basic life needs will not be accessible in this amazing place.
I am excited to provide whatever support I can to the concept and I fully endorse Life Plan Humboldt.
