Frequently asked questions.
Costs can vary widely depending on the community and the services offered.
A life care community (like Freedom Plaza) typically offers a residency agreement with a one-time entrance fee along with a monthly payment that covers the services provided. The entrance fee and monthly fee will vary depending on the size of the residence and the number of occupants. When needs change, care is provided on site from people you already know and trust. In addition to an entrance fee, a monthly fee covers community maintenance, dining programs, and access to all the services and amenities of the community. Refundability of your entrance fee will vary according to the Residency Agreement selected.
At many 55+ communities you simply buy a home (others offer rental agreements). HOA fees generally include lawn mowing and exterior repairs. And with the emphasis on “active,” 55+ communities provide opportunities for fitness, socializing, affinity clubs and volunteering. It sounds like a great place to live — as long as you stay healthy and active. But what if your health needs change?
