In the past, senior care was focused on keeping older adults safe in clinical settings with little concern about mental and spiritual wellness. Today, senior living communities offer various levels of care delivered in elegant, upscale buildings and accommodations, boasting numerous amenities and ample life enrichment opportunities.
When searching for senior living communities, the first question families often ask is, “How much per month?”
There is no easy way to answer this question. That’s like asking, “How much is a new house?” without specifying the amount of land, square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms or the location. There are numerous factors to consider such as level of care, apartment size and location that determine each person’s individual all-inclusive monthly rate.
At Country Meadows, our team discusses all costs involved with seniors and families at the beginning so there are no surprises. And our locations are among the more affordable retirement community options in our markets because we offer all-rental monthly rates with no buy-in and several apartment size options. Many providers charge by the service and before you know it, you’ve run up a huge monthly bill. Because of this, we are more affordable that what people may expect from a retirement community.
To help seniors calculate their current expenses versus living in a retirement community, Country Meadows created this tool to help provide a bigger picture.
Our senior living communities’ monthly rates include:
- Private senior living apartments with a choice of floor plans (based on availability)
- Continental breakfast and one main meal every day with drinks and snacks available around the clock (varies per community)
- Vibrant and engaging Dynamic Living programs that focus on the body, mind and soul
- Maintenance-free senior living with weekly housekeeping and laundry services
- All utilities including heat, air conditioning, electricity and wireless internet access
