Who lives in independent living facilities?
Residents normally move to an independent living facility to downgrade from the size of their current residence, cut down on the amount of household chores, or to live in a more senior friendly environment. Independent living facilities like South Orange B'nai Brith Federation House (SOBBFH) are usually restricted to people over the age of 55.
How are independent living facilities paid for?
In most cases, independent living facilities are paid for by the resident. Subsidized housing funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) may be an option for low-income seniors. There's normally a wait list to move into a HUD subsidized facility, which can be a several-year long process.
How much do independent living facilities cost?
The average cost of an independent living facility is $2,500 a month. Cost varies based on a number of factors, including the geographic location of the facility and the size of the residence. The monthly cost normally includes the rent for your housing, utilities, cable, and Internet. A one-time move-in fee may be charged, which is typically up to $1,000. Contact South Orange B'nai Brith Federation House (SOBBFH) for detailed information about costs and payment methods.
