Located on 46 acres of land in Plymouth is a sprawling senior living complex known as Trillium Woods. It's the city's first Life Care Services community.
Rick and Bonnie Weatherman are two of the newest residents. The couple lived in a Plymouth home for the past 18 years and decided to downsize.
"We knew there were some things that we would have to remove from our lives but it worked out very, very well," said Rick Weatherman.
Trillium Woods offers spacious apartments, a salon, a fitness center, a full-service bar and multiple dining centers.
"Here at Trillium Woods, they would not have to make their meals because we do have full dining services for them," said Victoria Duvall, executive director of Trillium Woods.
Essentially, it's made to feel like an all-inclusive resort for seniors. While the amenities are nice, the Weathermans say the fact that it's a Continuing Care Retirement Community is the big draw.
"We were going to make sure that we were in the appropriate hands to be comfortable as we were aging, and as we needed more and more care that there would be a facility there to handle that for us," said Bonnie Weatherman. "And we would not be dependent on our families to come running every time something happened."
Trillium Woods provides three levels of care - independent living, assisted living and skilled care.
"We have here at Trillium Woods a life care contract, which means that we promise to take care of you for the rest of your life, including the same monthly service fee," Duvall said.
For these services, residents have to pay a one-time entrance fee between $297,000 and $1 million, on top of a monthly fee between $3,072 and $4,737.
The Weathermans say it's a worthwhile cost as they live out their golden years.
"It makes life much simpler, much more straightforward, and it gives us a piece of mind that you can't find anywhere else," Rick Weatherman said.
Construction on the entire Trillium Woods complex should be complete by October and it already has plans to expand in the next two years.
