Rates at The Kensington
Monthly rates are determined by suite size and include all residential services, amenities and basic wellness services. Prior to moving in, individuals are professionally assessed to determine if additional care is needed to live safely and with dignity at The Kensington. Those who have health care needs that are assessed at Level 1 or Level 2 have two choices for monthly rates: Independent or All-Inclusive.
Independent rate plan
The Independent Rate includes all amenities and residential services such as 24-hour security and on-site care staff, daily meals, weekly housekeeping and laundry, transportation, maintenance, cable TV and utilities, plus our extensive activity program. In addition, residents on the Independent plan receive basic wellness services. These include nurse consultations, vital sign checks, help with scheduling appointments, daily monitoring, and simple medication management or personal assistance.
Independent rates start at $2,450 per month, the equivalent of $81/day.
Additional health and personal care services such as medication administration are also available as needed to Independent residents. Regular follow up assessments are used to update the service plan, designed to maximize both independence and well-being. Each additional service is assigned a point value which is based on the time and expertise required to provide the service. Up to 49 points of care services are included in Level 1, and are provided at no additional charge.
The monthly charge for Level 2 is $500.
All-Inclusive rate plan
The All-Inclusive rate includes the same amenities and services as provided in the Independent rate plan, plus additional housekeeping, laundry and all health care services as needed – including medication assistance, bathing, dressing and personal care assistance, and many other services.
Only those who have been assessed at a Level 1 or Level 2 prior to move-in have the option of choosing the All-Inclusive Rate plan. Residents on this rate plan will not be charged additional Levels-of-Care fees if and when care needs increase, no matter how long they stay at The Kensington.
