Begin with a careful review of expenses and care to get a clear understanding of what your loved one does or does not get in their home vs. a retirement community.  If you’re like most people who consider a move to Larksfield independent living, you’ll discover that the costs of community life compares favorably to the costs of aging in place at home. Fitting the needs of a family member’s ideal lifestyle is made easier with the right support.

At Larksfield Place, independent and assisted living residences are private pay. Here is a breakdown to help navigate the difference between costs of retirement community services and differentiate refundable deposits.

As a not-for-profit, Life Plan Community, Larksfield residents make a 90% refundable Entrance Fee deposit.  Most new residents use proceeds from selling their home. Entrance fees range from around $97,000 upward, depending on floor plan.

In addition, monthly service fees range from $1,920 to $5,000 or more.

When Larksfield Place is home, those homeownership costs for taxes, insurance, utilities, repairs and so forth are all covered by your monthly service fee. Even broken-down appliances (and burned-out light bulbs!) can be replaced, at no additional cost – and those replacements typically happen immediately.
