Expect more From Life

Dollars that Make Sense

A retirement plan that doesn’t account for future care needs is only half a plan. As a Life Plan community, Diablo Glen allows you to enjoy retirement with confidence, knowing that your move puts a plan in place for your future needs, while protecting your nest egg.

Because so much is included, residents pay for Life Plan communities like Diablo Glen in different ways than they would for a traditional single-family home or a rental apartment.

Entrance Fee

Diablo Glen residents pay a one-time entrance fee when they move into the community. The price is based on the size and location of the home they select, and most of this fee is repaid to the resident or their estate when they leave. Many residents use the proceeds from the sale of their current home to pay their entrance fee. At Diablo Glen, the fees are expected to start in the $600,000’s, and will be over $1,000,000 for our larger floor plan options.

Monthly Fee

Diablo Glen residents pay a monthly fee that covers many day-to-day living expenses that they used to pay for with separate checks. The fee includes meals at restaurants, housekeeping and landscaping maintenance, entertainment and transportation services, as well as access to long-term care at the adjacent care center. In addition to simplifying their finances, Diablo Glen residents are no longer responsible for property taxes, HOA charges, real estate insurance, or most of their utilities—and can receive significant tax benefits associated with their new move.

For those who take time to do the math, Diablo Glen can prove to be a compelling value and the lasting benefit of a retirement well-planned.

Comparing Your Options

Shopping around? Good idea. An accurate understanding of which services and amenities are included is just as important as loving the floorplans. Many of the perks that we look forward to at Diablo Glen (pickleball and tennis, movie theater, aquatic center, multiple dining venues, art studio, health spa, etc.) are not standard fare at other locations. Here’s an easy comparison chart to use while you’re learning about your options.

Understanding the Alternatives

Not all Life Plan Communities (CCRCs) provide the same level of long-term care support to residents, and some retirees choose to take on more risk than others. Finding the right fit is important and the State of California has provided help by categorizing communities as type A, B and C.

Customizing Your Costs
