Summary of Charges at The Meadows
The Meadows is a senior rental community. Payment of the first month's Service Fee is required to reserve a suite, but this monthly service fee is then 100 percent refundable at anytime before move in. For any reason at all. All residents pay a 100 percent refundable $30,000 Entrance Fee and furnish a guaranty from a suitable individual, usually a family member, prior to moving in.
The overall community easily accommodates multi-generational residencies, especially because programs at New Horizons tend to be completely separate from those of The Meadows.
Payment of the first Initial Monthly Fee is required at reservation. Most rates shown for units in The Meadows buildings include a full American-style breakfast every morning for one resident. Dinner meal may also be selected on either an every day or an occasional basis. Also included in the rate for all Meadows units are heating and hot water, as well as all maintenance, parking, snow removal, etc. There is no extra charge for more than one person occupying the same unit of The Meadows, other than the cost for any meals selected.
The monthly fee for apartments at The Meadows begins at just $1,070 for a very comfortable one-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and no meals included. The largest Meadows unit is a fourth-floor suite (Unit 407), facing west, with a large balcony, full kitchen, dining room, very large living room, a fireplaced office/den and two large bedrooms. This suite has 2 and 1/2 baths, skylight, and very large walk-in closets. By way of example, the monthly fee for this 1,990 square foot unit, with a daily breakfast buffet included, is $3,120.
