Spec­tac­u­lar views, gor­geous res­i­dences, wide-open spaces, and a relaxed and engag­ing way of life. These are some of the rea­sons why so many active peo­ple look­ing to sim­pli­fy make their homes at The Arling­ton. Opened in 2015 in Lely Resort, The Arling­ton offers lux­u­ry, main­te­nance-free Estate Homes and apart­ment res­i­dences togeth­er with pre­mier ameni­ties and a well­ness-based lifestyle. As a not-for-prof­it Life Plan Com­mu­ni­ty, res­i­dents also ben­e­fit from life­time access to com­pre­hen­sive care ser­vices at our Oak­ton Place Health­care Cen­ter, includ­ing assist­ed liv­ing, short-term reha­bil­i­ta­tion, skilled nurs­ing care, and mem­o­ry care. These ser­vices are also avail­able to old­er adults in the greater Naples area.

Life Plan Com­mu­ni­ties: A Great Life Today. And a Plan for the Future

The Arling­ton is not only Naples’ pre­mier address for lux­u­ry retire­ment liv­ing. It’s also a Life Plan Com­mu­ni­ty. It’s designed for peo­ple who want the recre­ation­al, social ameni­ties and qual­i­ty-of-life of an active adult com­mu­ni­ty and the assur­ance of future care as they age. In addi­tion to inde­pen­dent liv­ing, Life Plan Com­mu­ni­ties pro­vide on-site assist­ed liv­ing, mem­o­ry sup­port, skilled nurs­ing care and short-term rehabilitation. 

A Home for Life. Care for Life

A Life Plan Com­mu­ni­ty allows peo­ple to age in place as their needs change. For exam­ple, an inde­pen­dent liv­ing res­i­dent can tem­porar­i­ly move to short-term rehab to recov­er from a knee replace­ment. And a res­i­dent who is begin­ning to need more assis­tance can tran­si­tion to a assist­ed liv­ing. This flex­i­bil­i­ty makes a Life Plan Com­mu­ni­ty ide­al for cou­ples who may age at dif­fer­ent rates. With a con­tin­u­um of care avail­able, they can remain near to each oth­er with­out hav­ing to leave the community.

An Active Lifestyle and Excep­tion­al Amenities

Com­pared to oth­er types of com­mu­ni­ties, a Life Plan Com­mu­ni­ty typ­i­cal­ly pro­vides greater oppor­tu­ni­ties for social inter­ac­tion, a focus on well­ness, a wider range of activ­i­ties and life-enrich­ing ameni­ties and services. 

An Advan­ta­geous Finan­cial Model

The cost struc­ture of a Life Plan Com­mu­ni­ty dif­fers from that of a rental com­mu­ni­ty or a con­do­mini­um and pro­vides sev­er­al advan­tages, includ­ing more finan­cial sta­bil­i­ty, asset preser­va­tion, and poten­tial tax sav­ings. Instead of rent or HOA fees, The Arling­ton res­i­dents pay:
