FAQ: What’s included in my monthly service fee?

When you move to a continuing care retirement community, you’ll soon become accustomed to the many services and amenities offered to you as a resident. You’ll find yourself enjoying delicious meals, cleaning less, socializing more, and spending your newly attained free time doing the things that you love most or discovering new hobbies and interests. This is all made possible by the wide variety of services and amenities included in your monthly service package.

When a resident moves into a Continuing Care Retirement Community, he or she pays a one-time entrance fee, as well as a reoccurring monthly service fee. These fees cover the cost of your apartment or cottage, healthcare costs (depending on your contract type), and the maintenance and upkeep of the services and amenities on campus. Similar financial arrangements are provided at Kendal~Crosslands Communities.

Appealing Campus Amenities

At Kendal~Crosslands Communities, in your monthly service package, you’ll have access to many appealing amenities, including our modern fitness and aquatic centers. These centers are home to a salt-water pool, a large exercise pool, a lap pool, a Jacuzzi, several all-purpose exercise rooms with machines and free weights, and physical and occupational therapy suites. If you prefer to exercise outdoors, take a stroll along our beautiful wooded trails and through our level one certified arboretum, or take a swim in the outdoor pool. No matter how you like to get your exercise, there’s an option for you.

The monthly package also includes many health services, like wellness classes and personal trainers in the fitness and aquatic centers. No matter what your fitness goals may be, there’s a class for you. Join in on tai chi, strength training, or balance classes.

If you have other life goals you want to achieve, our coaches can help you to meet them with the Vitalize 360 program, a program designed to help seniors stay active and get the most out of their retirement. From learning a new language or skill to reaching a fitness goal, our coaches can provide direction and help you along the way.

Other amenities include several dining options, including the main dining room, the coffee shop, and dining al fresco. The dining room provides buffet style meals. For some causal dining, stop by the coffee shop for a quick pick me up.

Kendal-Crosslands Communities also has many amenities to support your passions and hobbies. For those who like to read, spend some quiet time in one of our two libraries with more than 20,000 items to enjoy. For those who like to craft, visit our wood shop or art studio.

Sublime Services

The monthly fee also covers basic services and utilities such as water and electric, heating, air conditioning, standard cable television and internet services, trash removal, water/sewer, housekeeping, campus maintenance and scheduled transportation. Local transportation takes residents to popular shopping destinations and local shopping districts, as well as nearby cultural and social events.

With campus and home maintenance services year-round, you’ll never have to worry about broken water heaters, trimming bushes or hedges, or shoveling snow during the winter months. Instead, you’ll be free to spend your time exactly how you choose.

Imagine the cost of paying for each of these utilities, services, and amenities in your current home: 24/7 security, transportation services, a cleaning service, in-home health care, a gym or pool membership, and more. All of these are included in the cost of the monthly package, making it an ideal value for any senior.
