How do I know which community is right for me?

When you’re considering your options, the most important thing you can do is take a personal tour and spend time getting to know the community. At Edgewood, we welcome you to attend some programs and meet current residents to learn about their decision-making process and how they like the Edgewood lifestyle. Be sure to try a few meals, too. After a while, you’ll know if the community feels like home to you.

It’s also important to consider the different types of financial arrangements available and decide what makes the most sense for you and your goals. If you’re financially conservative, the peace of mind LifeCare provides may be important to you. Or, maybe you’re willing to take a chance and pay a little less now for a community without LifeCare, knowing you may pay much more later, should you need long-term care. Do you prefer a rental community or an entrance fee community? Do you like the promise of having 90% of your entrance fee returned to you or your estate when you leave the community? Our team is here to answer all your questions and help you make the choice that’s right for you. Simply use our contact form or call us at 978-725-3300.
