3. When I move to Monroe Village, do I own my independent living residence?
Like all continuing care retirement communities, at Monroe Village, you enter into a service agreement.

9. What happens if I run out of money – how do I pay for the cost of senior living at Monroe Village?
We have a financial qualifying process that is conservative in nature and is based on your age at entry, your assets and your income. If through no fault of your own, you cannot make your full monthly payment, The Springpoint Senior Living Foundation offers a Resident Financial Assistance program to provide financial assistance on your behalf. Springpoint has never asked a resident to leave due to inability to pay. Back to top ^
