Is living at Powell Assisted Living & Memory Care really more affordable than staying at home?
To find out, first add up all of your—or your parent’s—current monthly expenses. This could include rent/mortgage, property tax, home owner's insurance, subdivision or association fees, utilities, lawn care, trash removal, home repairs, housekeeping, transportation, exercise classes, groceries, health care, home emergency call systems and more.
Now compare your total to the monthly rental program at Powell Assisted Living & Memory Care. Our fees include all of these expenses—along with priceless peace of mind.
Why are your rents higher than those at other communities?
Because you or your parent gets so much more at Powell Assisted Living & Memory Care. Our fee is all-inclusive, meaning you get an apartment in an upscale, home-like community; an anytime dining program with more choices; a large Department of Fun planning more activities; access to high-end amenities like a fitness center and spa; and vibrant energy unlike any other community.
How long is the waitlist?
It depends on which floor plan you choose. The more flexible you are, the faster you can get in to Powell Assisted Living & Memory Care. And if you take the first available apartment, you’re placed on a community waitlist after you move in. This gives you the first right to another apartment when one becomes available.
How’s the food?
Our restaurant-style dining and flexible meal plan, combined with an extensive menu and lots of choices, is unbeatable in retirement living. While it can get old eating in the same place day after day, we do our best to alternate the menu, keep it fresh, and keep you or your parent satisfied.
