So, you've reached that place in your life
where you've begun to look at Retirement Communities, and you're finding
it much harder than you thought! You're determined to make an
educated choice, but with so many locations and so many options,
gathering the information you need can be downright frustrating; so many
questions, so many choices.
At Foulkeways we can help. We are committed to facilitating the
right outcome; even if the result
leads you to another community.
That's our pledge to
Our fees are easy to locate on our
website; and, in our brochure. We believe our value is obvious
and wonder why other communities make their pricing so difficult to
• We trust that you will ultimately make a decision that best
serves YOUR needs, so we'll never hound you with dozens of phone calls
while you're doing your research.
We welcome your inquiries, and
encourage your questions, but will not invade your privacy with a
series of daily and weekly calls meant to satisfy predetermined
"sales" quotas. Our passion is introducing you to our
community, NOT TELEMARKETING!
Resident tour guides
lead you on your introductory
tour of our community; NOT commissioned sales people. No sales
You're exploring a LIFESTYLE.
You are not looking to purchase a car or a washing machine. Never
accept being pressured by an overzealous sales person to make a
hurried decision or commitment.
Choosing wisely takes time!
You should never be forced to accelerate YOUR timeline based on a
"deal"that is about to "expire."And speaking of "deals," retirement
communities do not have "end-of-year inventory" to clear off their
"lots.? Responsible communities devote countless hours to
developing secure, sound long and short term budgets; beware the
deal that's just too good to be true. Someone will ultimately be
paying the price.
• A tour of
our community ALWAYS includes a visit to
Personal Care and Skilled Nursing Care Center
End-of-life care is one of the most
important, if least mentioned, reasons to consider a move to a CCRC
(Continuing Care Retirement Community). Insist on a tour of
these important evaluators.
Proof of financial stability
should be readily
available. Our information is on our website.
If you can?t easily
obtain comprehensive financial disclosures such as Annual Reports
and other important documents, you should be asking yourself, "Why
communities are more than a collection of apartments, villas and
; they all have "personalities."
Carefully consider the campus, the
location, the current residents who will become your neighbors, the
amenities and services that will become available to you, and the
staff who will deliver them. When it comes to identifying
which retirement community will provide the best "fit," there are
many, many variables to take into consideration.
Sample the food,
stroll the grounds, visit the fitness center, check out the pool,
meet the people, attend an event or two, and schedule an extended
stay, if possible.
Remember, this is going to be your new home for "the second half
of your life."
At Foulkeways our goal is to provide you with
ALL the information
you need to make an informed and educated
decision; even if that means you decide to call another community
We truly want what's best for you. Honest!
