You do not need to be Mennonite. At Mennonite Village we promote spiritual growth and all faiths and beliefs are welcome.
A CCRC offers older adults a secure, long-term solution to changing needs in their retirement years. Residents can choose from a variety of contracts that offer several types of housing arrangements, various options for housekeeping and maintenance services, and many medical care plans. Community activities and supportive services provide opportunities to keep residents independent, active, and engaged in life as long as possible while offering respectful end of life care.
Not-for-profit retirement facilities are at the forefront of innovative long-term care solutions. In an age where rigidly structured institutional care for older adults has proven to be an unworkable situation, not-for-profit facilities have introduced an approach that offers a more dignified, homelike, life-enhancing setting. Recent research conducted by the federal Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) shows that not-for-profit nursing facilities provide more care per patient per day, invest more resources in resident care, and average significantly fewer deficiencies than for-profit facilities. The New York Times recently reported that “In an industry increasingly dominated by corporate chain ownership, the changes are occurring in non-profit, church-sponsored homes.”
Availability of homes varies within our community. Please contact us for current information.
Yes. Mennonite Village is working on a 10-year master plan exploring how we can better serve seniors. We have 275 acres with less the 70 acres developed. It is safe to assume that at some point Mennonite Village will be adding more independent living homes.
The short answer to that question is “no.” As a type-C (fee for service) continuing care retirement community, Mennonite Village can not guarantee placement from independent living to a higher level of care. Each area of our campus has its own admission criteria. However, each of our current residents receive priority over anyone coming from the community outside the campus. We have teams of people who work to help you make the transition to other areas.
Yes, you should expect a 2 %- 6 % increase each year. Mennonite Village is sensitive to the fact that most of our residents are on fixed incomes. However, as business expenses increase, we are obligated to increase fees to ensure the long-term viability of the company. As a non-profit we do work hard to hold down expenses in order to keep fees at a reasonable level.
Mennonite Village is a retirement community, and as such, our homes are not custom. However, we have put together a range of décor packages for you to choose from that meet our standards for the home. Before you sign on a home, we let you know exactly what options will be available.
Mennonite Village is a board run/driven not for profit company. Currently the board consists of members who are Mennonite and those who support our covenant. The Board makes the directional decisions for how Mennonite Village operates. MV has been in business since 1947 and operates based on our Covenant of being the hands and heart of Jesus to those we are called to care for. We would not expect that to change.
No. The waitlist fee is nonrefundable if you do not move on campus for any reason. When you sign a lease agreement on a home with Mennonite Village the waitlist fee is credited back to you.
If it has been longer than 6 months since you filled out an application when Mennonite Village offers you a home, we will request updated financials.
Absolutely! Mennonite Village is a very pet-friendly campus. In our independent living homes you may have two pets. All pets must be on a lease outside of the home. In the Ashwood II apartments, you may have one pet that is 30lbs or less.
First, there is a period of time between when you sign a Memo of Intent and when your home is ready for you to occupy. Usually this is 90 to 120 days. Typically, this is an adequate amount of time to sell your current home. However, if your home is still not sold, you do have 30 days from the time you are informed that your Mennonite Village home is ready for you until you need to occupy the home. Even then, if your home is still not sold, you may pay $1,000 to reserve your Mennonite Village home for an additional 30 days. We will be in contact with you throughout the renovation process so you will be well aware of important dates and timelines.
