"Moving to Greenspring was a solid financial decision," says Tanya Bodzin of the Erickson Senior Living community in Springfield, Va. "Prior to my move, I worked with my financial advisors to run the numbers on four continuing care retirement communities in the area, comparing facilities, location, cost, and amenities."
With state-of-the-art programs and services, quality health care options, and 200-plus clubs across 58 scenic acres, Tanya quickly learned that Greenspring's value couldn't be beat.
Now, Tanya reaps a range of great financial benefits from living at the popular community.
Greenspring offers the convenience of a monthly service package, which includes heating and air conditioning; all utilities, except cell service; Wi-Fi; a chosen meal plan at six on-site restaurants; maintenance, including repair and replacement of appliances; regularly scheduled transportation; and 24-hour security and emergency response.
Bundling all costs into one affordable, predictable payment, the monthly service package helps residents like Tanya manage their budgets with ease.
"I have fewer bills to pay, and if something needs repair, it is fixed in a timely manner," notes Tanya, who can place a call to general services for any maintenance issue she incurs.
"Most importantly, I am able to afford my apartment home and still travel," she continues. "I am able to close my door and go away without worrying about bills, upkeep, or repairs."
Peace of mind
At the heart of Greenspring's financial structure is the industry-leading 90% refundable entrance deposit*, which guarantees that, if or when you leave the community, your deposit will be returned to you or your beneficiaries.
And the community's Home for Life promise - made possible through the Benevolent Care Fund, which provides financial assistance to residents who, through no fault of their own, outlive their resources - reassures residents that they will be taken care of.
"Our fee-for-service model is another draw," notes Sales Director Franklin Funes. "Residents pay only for the services they currently want or need, compared to the life care model that requires payment upfront for services you may never need. By taking advantage of the high-quality health care offered at Greenspring, our resident's needs can always be met."
"Greenspring's financial strength is impressive, but," says Tanya, "I can't believe that there's so much outside my door. Everything adds to Greenspring's value."
Access to the community's top-notch amenities is also included in the monthly service package.
Greenspring boasts a large chapel, accommodating various faith communities; a brand-new fitness center and pool; six restaurants, offering more than 100 entree selections each day; and a performing arts theater.
As an avid walker, Tanya often strolls through the well-landscaped grounds and the community garden, which is teeming with resident-grown flowers, fruits, and vegetables.
"I love that I have six restaurants to choose from," says Tanya. "There are many opportunities for learning, movies are offered almost every night, and live concerts are popular here. We also have an in-house TV station that runs resident-created shows."
Tanya also visits the fitness center - at no additional cost.
"It was important for me to live where people and activities are together under one roof," she says. "I definitely have that here!"
Investing in the future
Many of these amenities are continuing to grow and evolve, evidenced by Erickson Senior Living's recent $4 billion expansion plan and $450 million investment to update and enhance existing communities.
At Greenspring, recent renovations include updates to the community's continuing care neighborhood and modern changes to the three clubhouses. Two new restaurant areas and a fitness space are also being created.
"For someone considering a move to Greenspring, I recommend visiting and seeing all the amenities," says Tanya. "I would also suggest moving while you are young enough and healthy enough to take advantage of all the activities. It's wonderful!"
