CRF Communities in central Florida takes its commitment to aging in place seriously. Lake Ashton and Vienna Square, two CRF communities, are modeled with
the idea that anyone should be able to live in their home
for as long as they desire, regardless of their age or ability. Lake Ashton offers affordable, active adult living with
an amenity-rich atmosphere featuring golf, dining, every
type of fitness and numerous activities. Vienna Square,
located next to its continuing care campus, offers Lake
Ashton’s amenities with low- or no-maintenance housing built with green standards and universal design.
The communities provide complete professional
health care services with an à la carte concierge menu of
services. Their Secure Care Pledge offers priority access
to the new state-of-the-art, no entrance fee continuing
care campus. The continuing care campus offers com-
panionship and home helper services, home care
supplies and group care services at the best prices.
In the past, visions of ‘Universal Design’ conjured
thoughts of unsightly grab bars in bathrooms, chair lifts
and ramps. Fortunately, today’s designers and homebuilders incorporate beautifully stylish elements that
you would never suspect.
Consider incorporating these ideas when planning
your new home.
Low-maintenance exteriors of brick, stucco or composite
materials reduce painting and repair. For landscaping,
try planting low maintenance shrubs and plants that
require the water available through rainfall only (
xeriscaping). Or, you may want to consider purchasing in a
neighborhood that offers maintenance-free landscaping.
