It’s important to choose a community that provides additional healthcare services — such as assisted living, comprehensive nursing care or memory care — because it provides you peace of mind for the future. Should you ever need extra support, you won’t have to leave your community and move elsewhere. At Edenwald, we offer you the security of future care through two different contract choices. There are pros and cons to these two different types of contracts, called Lifecare (Type A) and fee-for-service (Type C).
If you opt for a Lifecare (or Type A) contract, you’ll pay one all-inclusive entrance fee and a monthly service fee to enjoy unlimited care — including assisted living, comprehensive nursing care and memory care — at a minimal increase in your monthly fee. With a fee-for-service (Type C) contract, you’ll pay a lower entrance and monthly fee and receive the same services that you would with Lifecare — you’ll just pay for future healthcare, if needed, individually at market rates.

Designed to provide a seamless transition from one level of care to another, CCRC’s (Continuing care retirement community), allow residents to “age in place.” Should a person’s needs change, he or she can access the care and services required from one community at one geographic location. This is especially helpful for couples – both can have the appropriate level of care while living in the same community.
Most CCRCs require a one-time entrance fee plus monthly fees to cover on-going services such as maintenance, dining, and transportation. It’s important to ask if the entrance fee is refundable upon termination of the contract through a voluntary move or death, as not all communities offer entrance fee refunds*.
At Edenwald, the amount of the entrance fee depends on the apartment size and location, and it’s more affordable than you might think. Monthly fees also vary depending on the apartment size and number of occupants. Our onsite team can tell you more.
*Carefully read the Residence and Services Agreement for the conditions that must be satisfied before Edenwald is required to pay the entrance fee refund.
Residents elect four officers: President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary and hold monthly meetings. The Resident Association President serves on the Edenwald Board of Directors.
