WHAT DOES ACADEMY VILLAS COST?
One might think that the extensive number of amenities and high staff to resident ratio suggests that the cost of Academy Villas is high. This is not the case. The residents’ costs are kept in line because we are a non-profit organization. Thus, a huge percentage of our revenue is returned to care and services.
The size of the room at Academy Villas determines its cost. The rent charge varies from the low $3,000s to the mid $4,000s per month. Two person, two-room suites range from the low to the high $6,000s. For more information, please contact us.
COSTS OF STAYING AT HOME OR MOVING TO ASSISTED LIVING
It is a fairly common belief that assisted living costs considerably more than living at home. Depending on one’s circumstances, that may or may not be true.
If one needs supportive care, the cost of remaining at home includes both the cost of home care as well as covering all the expenses of home ownership or paying rent. In-home care, often the first choice of those who do not wish to move, can quickly become very expensive–particularly if it exceeds more than six hours a day. If the level of in-home care needed is on a par with the level of care offered in assisted living residences, it becomes even more expensive. When comparing the cost of assisted living to remaining at home, one should consider the following costs:
- Mortgage or rent
- Property taxes
- Home Insurance
- Utility charges, including TV services
- Maintenance and upkeep
- Food shopping and preparation
- Automobile expenses
- Any costs associated with in-home healthcare
Assisted living is often no more, and sometimes less than the cost of remaining at home. It offers many advantages that are not available at home, including enjoyable social interactions; regular entertainment and activities; tasty, nutritious meals; and careful, continuous, attention to the residents’ health and well-being.
