What is an Entrance Fee?
Westminster Village is a life care community, which provides a full continuum of housing, services, and health care that is centrally located and administered on our campus. The entrance fee is a pre-payment of medical expenses, similar to a long-term plan insurance policy. The payment of the entrance fee entitles you to lifetime use of our on-site Health Care Center or Assisted Living Center, if you should need it, for as long as you need. This allows you to plan for the future, rather than be ruled by unforeseen health care events.
What services does the Monthly Fee include? Does this fee increase?
The monthly service fee provides a rich array of personal services. The cost varies based on the size apartment you choose. Services include daily dining dollars for meals in one of our excellent dining venues, housekeeping service every other week, weekly flat linen service, scheduled transportation, twenty-four hour security, reserved covered parking and storage, building and grounds maintenance, thirty minutes of home health services per day, an array of planned activities and all utilities except for telephone, cable and high speed Internet. Yes, this fee generally increases between two and six percent each year. The increase is decided by our Board of Directors.
