Can I afford residency?

Residency at Cairnwood Village is planned for those who can and want to remain independent. Many future residents now own their own homes. When sold, these homes may be of sufficient value to provide the entrance fee and, in many cases, additional money for investments with earnings to cover some or all the monthly maintenance costs.

This investment income - plus the elimination of such expenses as insurance, taxes, maintenance, heating and electricity - combined with Social Security, pensions and other income, may leave residents with more discretionary income than they had before. For many people who do not have homes to sell, but do have investments, Cairnwood Village may still be a possibility.

Consultants are available on a confidential basis to help you determine if residency is within your means.
