Helping You Age in Your Own Home
BY A. CRENSHAW
After five years of operation, Navigation by Salemtowne has a new name—Navigation at Home—and a new look for 2021. In addition, Navigation at Home is adding new program benefits and doubling its service area.
For those not familiar with Navigation, it is a personalized, membership-based program that offers the necessary long-term care support for people to age in place in their own home.
Navigation at Home offers peace of mind so members can live the way they want. Members, seniors aged 62+, are assigned a Care Navigator who becomes their personal advocate and trusted ally, helping to create a customized plan for long-term care and wellness that works with their unique interests and goals. Members no longer have to worry about forms, endless phone queues, and confusing processes if care is needed. All it takes is one call to their Care Navigator, and they handle the rest.
“After spending years making friends and creating a comfortable home, it is not surprising that many of today’s seniors want to stay in their own home, in their familiar neighborhood, as they age,” Salemtowne President and CEO Mark Steele said. “This goal is achievable, but it takes more than familiar surroundings; it takes a Continuing Care at Home program like Navigation at Home.”
“Our new name—Navigation at Home—emphasizes the goal we’ve had since the inception of the program, which is to empower older adults to live on their own terms in their own home,” Steele continued.
To better meet individual needs, the Navigation at Home program has been enhanced to offer more customized plans that provide greater flexibility for seniors who want long-term care solutions to live at home. Regardless of which plan type Navigation at Home members choose, all plans provide asset protection, care coordination, and access to high-quality care. The program also offers flexible pricing options and discounts for those who already have a long-term care insurance policy.
“Those exploring their long-term care options can rest assured that with Navigation at Home they can expect a reputable Continuing Care at Home program that provides them with customized plans, resources, and security to successfully live at home for as long as possible,” Steele said.
Navigation at Home has doubled its service area and is now available in 20 counties in North Carolina. Navigation at Home has been serving, and will continue to serve, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Guilford, Iredell, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry, Wilkes, and Yadkin. In addition, Navigation at Home now also serves Alexander, Alleghany, Ashe, Cabarrus, Catawba, Gaston, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Randolph, and Rowan counties.
Navigation at Home remains a division of Salemtowne Retirement Community and is licensed by the North Carolina Department of Insurance as a Continuing Care at Home program.
Salemtowne, located near the original home of North Carolina’s Moravian settlers, is a nonprofit, continuing care retirement community founded in 1972 and renowned for providing the highest standards and options for seniors. It is a community that embraces a deep Moravian heritage where residents enjoy life to its fullest and where every life shines.
