Aging well is your priority and our passion.
Confident Living is the newest program offered by Life Enriching Communities (LEC). Best known for our Twin Towers and Twin Lakes senior living communities, LEC has made aging well a top priority for nearly 120 years.
Affiliated with the West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church, LEC is a private, not-for-profit corporation, locally owned and operated, and welcomes people of all faiths. Confident Living is an alternative to community living and focuses on helping people age well in their own homes.
We work for the day when everyone involved in senior living finds fulfillment through:

We joined Mona Morrow in the studio to discuss how it’s possible to age at home with Confident Living.
Enrolling while you are healthy allows you to take full advantage of the tools and services we offer that promote resiliency and allow you to age well. Too often people wait until there is a health crisis before making a decision. This can affect your eligibility as well as impact the rates for your fees.
Confident Living offers a Premier Plan, Home Care Plan, or Care Coordination Plan, each of which is customizable to fit your needs.
If you relocate anywhere in the United States after you have been a member for one year, you carry your Confident Living plan with you. Confident Living will contract with a geriatric care manager in that area who will work with your Care Coordinator to arrange any services you may need.
Your trusted Care Coordinator will arrange and monitor your needs. If that means coordinating doctor visits, preparing your home for hospital discharge, arranging in-home care or medical equipment, or communicating with family, your Care Coordinator will manage everything.
Your health status is determined using a questionnaire that is completed by you and your Plan Counselor. Once that has been completed, a medical information release form is signed by you to allow our independent underwriter to review your personal physician notes and health questionnaire. An underwriter will also conduct a personal interview as part of the process to determine your eligibility.
Membership fees for Confident Living are guaranteed not to change for at least five years. After that time, fees may be adjusted due to changes in the costs of providing care. Your fees will never go up due to a change in your health or an increase in your age.
The Confident Living program will follow you to your new independent living home in a retirement community. Your Care Coordinator will ensure that you receive the appropriate services and serves as your advocate in your new community.
Application for Confident Living membership is open to individuals aged 50 to 80 years old who are in reasonably good health and are living independently.
Your Care Coordinator will conduct a detailed functional assessment and discuss your care concerns and needs. Based on your requirements for assistance with activities of daily living, the quantity, frequency, duration, and kinds of services will be established during the discussion and recorded in your care plan.
Confident Living will recommend trusted assisted living facilities and nursing homes throughout the region. Your Care Coordinator can arrange a visit to these facilities for you or your family member to determine whether one is right for you.
Yes, you have a designated Care Coordinator who is part of a Care Coordination team. Members of the team provide services should your Care Coordinator be unavailable.
For true emergencies, dial 911. Our Care Coordinators can be reached by calling 513- 719-3522. They can handle urgent calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Confident Living membership plans are highly personalized with many options. Variables such as your age at the time of enrollment, the type of plan you choose and the level of daily future service credit you select all enter into the calculation.
If a member’s relationship with their Care Coordinator is not positive, another member of the Care Coordination team may be available to support them with their goals and other health-related needs should they arise.
Whether you’ll age-or age well-is up to you.
We understand how frustrating it is when aging begins to make life harder, and how important it is to maintain your independence as long as possible. We’re here to be your advocates for worry-free living--on your terms.
