Attractive rate plans/options, for a multi-level / progressive living community

One couple from New York recently stated, “Waterman Village is a great value!” 

According to a report by the American Seniors Housing Association (ASHA), the average person who moves into a community that offers independent living, assisted living, and a nursing home, will live in the community’s

nursing home area for only 9 months.  Therefore, the average person is much better off financially to choose a ‘fee-for-service’ rate/agreement plan like Waterman Village’s, where you pay a little more for nursing home care, but receive a 75% entry refund provision for life, rather than a community with a ‘life-care’ rate/agreement plan that has high entrance fees, but zero refund provisions, after just a few years of residency.

Other reasons why Waterman Village’s ‘fee-for-service’ rate/agreement plan is preferred by seniors, in comparison to a ‘life-care’ plan, are: 1) nursing home usage across the U.S. is declining significantly, 2) more retirement community residents are moving to the community’s ‘assisted living’ facility rather than the community’s ‘nursing home’, 3) more retirement community residents are hiring ‘in-home’ health care in their independent living units, and 4) hospitals are being rewarded financially for NOT discharging their patients to nursing home/care facilities.

People who already possess long-term care insurance, discover living at The Oaks Retirement Community at Waterman Village, to be the ideal choice. Why? Because they don’t have to pay ‘twice’ for long-term insurance: for their long-term care insurance policy and to the community in high, often non-refundable, entrance fees.

The Oaks Villa Home monthly service fees begin at $3,055 for a single occupant and $3,855 for a double occupant, under the no entry fee plan. Under the entry-fee plan, monthly fees begin at $2,680 for a single occupant and $3,480 for a double.  This is for a 2BR – 2BA unit (about 1,100 square feet).  Entry fees begin at $136,000 and have high refund-ability provisions, no matter how long you live in your residence! 

The Oaks Manor Home monthly service fees begin at $2,385 for a single resident and $2,885 for a couple. Entry fees begin at $205,000 and have high refund-ability provisions, no matter how long you live in your residence!

The Oaks Custom and Estate Home monthly service fees begin at $2,730 a month for single occupancy and $3,230 for a couple. Entry fees begin at $237,000 and have high refund-ability provisions, no matter how long you live in your residence!

Rates for the new Lakeside Retirement Community, will be available in the next few months.  A priority member list has started.  Call (352) 385-1120 for details.

Rates for the Bridgewater Assisted Living Residence begin at $3,400 a month.  Private pay only.

Rates for the Edgewater Health & Rehabilitation Center begin at a $255 day.  If you have traditional Medicare and a Medicare supplement, medicare will often pay up to your first 100 days.  If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, they typically pay very poorly for nursing home/long term care. We don’t recommend Medicare Advantage plans, for skilled nursing facility coverage purposes.

Resident Waterman Village

 

My wife and I moved to Waterman Village 2 yrs. ago after looking for a place we could call our forever home.  We are very happy we chose this place as the staff and residents are the best , you can do as much or as little as you want as far as activities go and is a great place to enjoy our retirement years.  It is nice to live in a safe , quiet , gated community that is very well laid out and landscaped . We are living our best life.
