  • How much will this cost?
    Residents pay a one-time entrance fee that entitles them to the lifetime use of their apartment home for as long as they maintain an independent lifestyle. The entrance fee also allows residents access to all campus amenities and assures priority access to assisted living, memory care and nursing care in the future.

    The entrance fee does not deliver title to the residence; however, it is 80%-90% refundable, depending on the type of life care contract chosen. If the resident leaves for any reason, the refundable portion of the entrance fee will be returned to the resident or their estate once a new entrance fee is obtained.
  • Is there a monthly fee?
    Yes. A monthly maintenance fee is charged to cover all amenities and services addressed in the previous question. It also covers taxes and one reserved parking space.
  • How does the reservation process work?
    Once you have selected your residence, 10% of the entrance fee is required in order to reserve the apartment. The balance of the deposit is not due until the residence is available for occupancy.
  • Will you refund my 10 percent deposit if my situation changes?
    Yes. All deposit monies will be placed in an escrow account until your residence is ready for occupancy. Should you or your spouse die, become disabled or have a serious financial setback after executing the residence agreement but before moving into St. George Village, your entire entrance fee will be refunded. If you withdraw for any other reason than those stated, you will receive a full reimbursement less a $500 application fee.
  • What if my choice of apartment is not available?
    We offer a wait list option for those apartment styles that are fully reserved. A small deposit is required to maintain a wait list status for a specific apartment style that is currently unavailable. Once the desired apartment becomes available, the wait list deposit amount is then applied to the 10% deposit.
