Wondering about the expenses associated with senior living apartments? The monthly costs of independent living fluctuate significantly based on your location, desired amenities, and the type of living arrangement you choose, ranging from $1,500 to $10,000.
For residents in Pennsylvania, the average cost for independent living stands at $3,555 per month. This fee generally encompasses housing, utilities, meals, transportation, and access to a dynamic schedule of activities and events, along with certain healthcare services. When you compare these costs against those of home ownership or renting, you might find that the expenses for independent living communities like Meadowood are more reasonable than anticipated.
While entry fees are a common requirement for most independent living communities, opting for a life-plan community or a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) like Meadowood offers additional advantages. One of the standout benefits is the opportunity to age in place with peace of mind.
Choosing Meadowood for independent living means gaining access to a spectrum of lifestyle and healthcare options, all available on a single campus. These options include independent living, personal care, memory care, and skilled nursing. This arrangement spares you and your family the stress of searching for alternative living arrangements in emergency situations, allowing for a smooth transition based on your needs, without being constrained by the fees or availability of other facilities. With Meadowood, transition when it’s right for you.

“I like the fact that it’s easier to maintain,” says Alan Bozorth. “I don’t need space. It just gives me more time to relax and do what I want. So downsizing has really helped me.”
“I love my one-bedroom…I love the size because I feel like I’m in control of everything,” echoed Wendy Miller. “My friends have even said that I’m a happier person since I moved in. They see a difference. Before I moved, I was cleaning rooms I hadn’t been in for two weeks!”
