If you've done any research at all on Independent Living communities, you’ve probably discovered a wide array of confusing choices. Our page on Tips For Your Search offers some suggestions to help you identify and prioritize the things that are most important to you.
In addition, you have to make sure that the community you are interested in is affordable. You may have experienced sticker-shock when you first saw rent prices for independent living communities. Don’t despair - rent in independent living often includes several things that a regular apartment does not so you have to look at the whole picture.
Confidently calculating affordability is often challenging so we’re here to make it easier for you. We’ve prepared this cost comparison worksheet which should help. The left side is for you to fill in with costs associated with your current living situation. The right side is designed to help you understand which of your current expenses will be eliminated or reduced when you reside in our Independent Living community. If you need assistance with this form or have questions, please contact one of our Leasing Consultants at 480-834-0600 and they will be happy to guide you through it.
Cost Calculator Directions:
- Fill in the Present Living Situation column with your current monthly payments for each category, Expense Type
- If one Expense Type or more are not something you have please enter a zero
- NOTE: most of the areas in the Fellowship Square Historic Mesa column are included in the monthly rent and do not need to be filled in
Final note regarding affordability: Understanding what is and is not included in the monthly rent is critical as are any required deposits, lease term, discounted housing programs and potential for rate increases. Any community you consider should be very clear and transparent in this area.
