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 any additional care is needed to live safely and with dignity at The Kensington.
Assisted Living Base Rates
Base Rates for assisted living include 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.
Base rates start at $2,895 per month for a studio suite, the equivalent of $95/day.
Levels of Care
Additional health and personal care services such as medication administration, bathing or dressing assistance and more are also available as needed to residents who require such services. For those in need of care, an assessment is performed by our in-house nurse, in conjunction with your private physician if you wish. Each health care service is assigned a point value, which is based on the number of minutes and expertise required to provide the service. We offer four care levels.
Level 1 – $650
Level 2 – $1,050
Level 3 – $1,750
Level 4 – $2,450
Care beyond level 4 is available and charged based on minutes and points.
Upon move-in, regular follow-up assessments are used to update the service plan, which ensures residents are getting appropriate care at all times. For more information, please speak to the staff at The Kensington.
