Financial considerations and how to deal with them.

Often, before people even decide they want to move into a senior living community, they want to know if they actually can move into such a community. At Bridge Senior Living, we’re committed to being as transparent as possible when it comes to financial matters. If you’re looking for specific pricing information, we encourage you to visit a community-specific page where you’ll find pricing listed on each page’s Floor Plans section. Of course, you’re also more than contact us for that information, as well.

When assessing your individual needs, bear in mind that every community we manage uses an inclusive cost structure. Your fixed monthly cost covers almost everything from rent, utilities, and meals to maintenance and housekeeping. Plus, you won’t have to pay real estate taxes. After running the numbers (and we can help with that), don’t be surprised to find that your investment in living in a Bridge community may be quite similar to your existing living situation – but with even less stress.

As for financing a life at one of the communities we manage, you may wish to explore some of the following options:

  • Disbursements from personal retirement and pension plans
  • Equity from the sale of your home
  • A bridge loan or home equity loan
  • Veterans Affairs Aid and Attendance benefits for veterans or their surviving spouses
  • Sale of stocks and securities
  • Life settlement income or cash from the sale of mature insurance policies
  • Private funding from companies such as Elderlife Financial Services, which specializes in senior living loans

If you would like to discuss these options or could just use a little help getting pointed in the right direction, don’t hesitate to contact us.
