Residences at Vantage Point

Welcome to Residences at Vantage Point’s virtual booth. We encourage you to learn more about our community, Howard County’s only Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) for adults age 60 and older offering the security of Life Care. Our community is a natural extension of Columbia’s essential premise—that one’s life is enriched by the community in which he or she lives. Not only is Residences at Vantage Point located in the physical heart of Columbia, but it also represents part of the city’s virtual heart as well. Inclusiveness is a hallmark of who we are: non-denominational, not-for-profit, welcoming people of all beliefs and backgrounds to an openhearted environment designed to maximize the best life has to offer.

Our progressive community, brimming with resident volunteers and people from all walks of life.  Vantage Point is SAGECare credentialed, dedicated to understanding LGBT aging. Combined with a range of living options that may be more affordable than you think, and a location that affords access to the best of Baltimore and Washington, DC, our downtown Columbia setting is among the best that Maryland has to offer

Today more than 300 residents call Vantage Point their home. The community offers independent apartments, assisted living apartments, memory support apartments, and comprehensive nursing care all under one roof. And, because freedom of choice is vitally important, new residents can select from two types of residency agreements when joining the community, an “all-inclusive” LifeCare Plan offering financial predictability even as health care needs may change, or a flexible, Fee-for-Service Plan, where you only pay for the health care services you may use, at the time you use them.

Because we are a not-for-profit, privately owned corporation, we don’t answer to shareholders. We are accountable only to our residents and their families, and we take their trust in us very seriously. In fact, we believe it’s why so many people have chosen to call us home.

To assist Residences at Vantage Point in maintaining a quality-first retirement community, Life Care Services LLC (LCS) of Des Moines, Iowa, a recognized leader in the management of full-service retirement communities, provides management services to Residences at Vantage Point. LCS currently serves more than 40,000 residents across the United States and has ranked highest in customer satisfaction among Independent Senior Living Communities in the JD Power 2020 Senior Living Satisfaction Study for two years in a row.*

Our dedication to the safety and well-being of residents and staff has never been more paramount than during 2020. We are taking every measure to manage the risk of COVID-19 and we continue to follow guidance and direction from the Howard County Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and LCS Management. Measures include:

  • Enhanced infection control precautions- sanitizing rounds conducted several times per day throughout the community,
  • Universal masking required throughout the community and additional personal protective equipment (PPE) protocols for staff and medical providers
  • Screening residents, staff and visitors
  • Restricting visitations as mandated
  • Testing of residents and staff for COVID-19 as mandated.

The hallmark of a continuing care retirement community is the peace of mind knowing that you have a long-term care safety net should your needs change in the coming years. We provide residents access to increasing levels of health care services along a continuum from light home care delivered to your independent apartment, through high-quality rehabilitation and skilled nursing care in the on-site health center.

Whether you need a bit of extra help on a short-term basis or require ongoing attention in a more structured environment, we have a program tailored to you. Every step of the way, we’ll be a trusted partner who helps you navigate change and manage the process of aging well. You and those you care about can be secure knowing that you already have a plan in place should a healthcare crisis arise.
