Frequently Asked Questions.
What is a Life Plan Community?
Life Plan Communities, formerly known as Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs), offer independent living residences as well as access to high-quality residential care (assisted-living), memory care and 24-hour nursing care.
A Life Plan Community focuses on promoting an active lifestyle for residents while providing multiple levels of care on a single campus. This emphasis on lifestyle and planning your own future is what makes LPC a unique and more satisfying experience for residents. Many LPCs also seek to develop a closer integration into the surrounding community. This is certainly true of The Forum.
How is The Forum different from other senior living communities in the San Francisco Bay Area?
The Forum is a stock co-operative owned by our members with Equity Ownership of your apartment home or villa. Compared to “entrance fee” financial plans, the Residents and their estates have the ability to share in the future appreciation upon resale.
We’re the only Life Plan Community in the San Francisco Bay Area that’s owned and governed by a Resident Board of Directors.
With our complete continuum of care that includes Assisted Living, Memory Care, Skilled Nursing, Rehabilitation and Forum Member Respite Care, you’ll never need to worry where to go for care.
Wellness is a way of life at The Forum at Rancho San Antonio. Every day, you have the opportunities to take care of your body, feed your soul, nurture relationships and energize your mind.
Nestled in the foothills of Silicon Valley, The Forum is adjacent to Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve and minutes away from local arts and sports events.
What makes the Health Care Center so important?
Being part of a Life Plan Community means that as your lifestyle changes, you can be assured you’ll have access to those services that meet your needs within our Health Care Center.
You never have to worry about where you’ll go for any level of high-quality, person-centered care at pre-established rates that are substantially below the usual health care costs for the same services.
