“In the short time I have been at Assisi, I have met so many wonderful people. My fellow residents are great conversationalists and good listeners, and they have a wonderful sense of humor. The apartments and grounds are kept neat and clean, with an overall comfortable feeling of home. I don’t think I could have picked a better place to retire or a better family to be with!”

Financial Options

Several financing options are available at Assisi Village to provide more flexibility as you plan your retirement living. Our entry fee option and monthly rental plans offer different approaches to your personal situation and financial preferences.


If you desire a lower monthly rental fee and prefer to pay an entry fee upon moving to Assisi Village, this plan may be ideal for you. If you choose this plan, your entry fee balance will decline each month by 1/60 of the original price. At the end of five years (or 60 months) your eligible refundable balance will be zero; however, the lower monthly rental fee will remain at the entry option rate for as long as you live in Independent Living.* If you need to move to a higher level of care within the first 60 months, the remaining entry fee balance can be used to offset the price of a higher level of care.


If you prefer to pay as you go, a monthly rental plan may be the right choice for you. When you choose a monthly rental plan, a community fee is assessed to help cover the cost of move-in renovations. We take pride in the fact that we keep our building and all our apartments updated.

*Fees are subject to possible annual adjustments.
