Comparing Residences

Use this cost comparison checklist to easily weigh your senior living options

Just as you’d tour multiple houses or condos when you’re shopping for a new home, you’ll probably want to visit more than one senior living residence. It’s a great way to see the buildings, check out their private suites, tour common spaces and decide which ones have amenities that are important to you.

To fill out this checklist, start by visiting seniors’ residences near you. While you’re on a tour, be sure to ask about senior living costs to know what’s included. After the tour, you can compare senior living fees versus your expenses at home; and weigh the costs for each residence for seniors you’re considering.

At Amica, residence appreciate the simplicity and value associated with paying one monthly fee for a private suite that provides personalized service, exceptional cuisine and premium amenities in a prime location. Instead of paying separately for snow removal or a gym membership, you pay one monthly fee that covers a range of services at Amica. The Amica cost also includes utilities, security, housekeeping, weekly linen laundry, household maintenance (painting, gutter cleaning, window cleaning, roof repairs, etc.), lawn and tree care, fitness classes, major appliance repairs/replacement, a registered nurse on staff and scheduled transportation for shopping and excursions, and more.
