Decision Guide

Deciding to make a change in your own living arrangement or in the living arrangement of a loved one is not easy. Many factors must be considered when deciding on a senior living option, a few being:

  • Will I or my loved one enjoy living in a new place?
  • Can I or my loved one afford the new arrangement?
  • Will I or my loved one have access to everything needed?
  • What will happen as I or my loved one gets older?

A continuing care retirement community such as Parkway Village is designed to provide for the needs of an adult 55+ now and in the future. No matter the level of care needed, it can be provided, all in one location.

And the cost is surprisingly affordable compared to the expense of owning and maintaining a home and paying for home caregiving services as you need them.

The Village Independent Living

Just as we offer options in independent living homes, we also offer options in pricing.

  • Standard contract with refundable entry fee and a monthly fee. This contract offers the lowest monthly fee. When you move out of independent living, the entry fee is refunded on a prorated basis from 70% to 85%.
  • Nonrefundable entry fee and a monthly fee. This contract offers a significantly lower entry fee and slightly higher monthly fee.
  • No entry fee and one-year lease. This contract does not require an entry fee. The resident signs a one-year lease, pays a nonrefundable deposit equal to one month’s rent, and pays a higher monthly fee.
  • Sandalwood Court, Redwood Terrace, and Lemonwood Court only: A rental option is available. No lease is required; a nonrefundable deposit/refurbishing fee equal to one month’s rent is required.

NOTE: Additional charges for double occupancy apply.
