Cost of Living Considerations
Finding the right senior living community can largely depend on financial considerations. To assist you in financial planning, we’ve developed a Harmony Cost Comparison Sheet for senior living that outlines the benefits of choosing one of our communities.
We took the guesswork out of U.S. Veterans benefits to ease the cost of senior living.
One of the things military retirees like best about life at The Crossings is that so many of their fellow residents are veterans, too.
There’s a pretty good reason for that.
We’ve made it our personal call of duty to help military retirees reduce to the cost of senior living.
Helping you make the most of the Veterans benefits you’ve earned is a big part of that.
Cash flow analysis you can bank on.
To help our proud veteran residents reduce their living expenses and live in grand style, we’ve joined hands with a team of experts with deep insight into Veterans Aid and Assistance benefits.
They’ll evaluate your eligibility for a full range of benefit opportunities, and even simplify the qualification and application process to keep your plans on track.
Valued at more than $800, each benefits analysis is conducted absolutely free on behalf of new and existing Crossings tenants by our trusted partner, Elder Resource Benefits Consulting of Sudbury, Mass.
