Myth: “It costs so much money; I could never afford to live there.”
Fact: When families are considering a retirement community, they don’t take into consideration the costs to live in their homes, such as; utilities, taxes, an emergency response system, maintenance, security, housekeeping, food, and maybe a membership to the Fitness Center. Actually, folks need to weigh the intangibles as well, such as access to health care, socialization of living in a community and sharing interests with friends and neighbors, and the accessibility of a caring staff.
At a Continuing Care Retirement Community, such as Westminster Village, these costs are all included in the monthly fee. With all that is included, it may not be as “expensive” as many people think!
