This is your ‘pay-as-you-go’ tenancy option. If you choose to rent, you can expect to pay one monthly amount, which includes your monthly levies. This will cover building maintenance, security surveillance and monitoring, municipal charges (excluding electricity and water), village nursing clinics, social services and the use of all village facilities.
Compared with rental like a ‘pay-as-you-go’ option, life right is the alternative whereby you pay your rent upfront for a fixed period of approximately 15 years. The advantage is that you avoid annual increases to rentals and, should either you or your spouse inhabit the unit for longer than 15 years, one would effectively no longer be paying rent.
In our Munro Kirk and Lapa Munnik villages, we have our frail care centre, as well as our step-down facility. The latter, also known as our sick bay, is available for all of our residents on a temporary basis for those recuperating from acute medical or surgical conditions.
For those who only need help with specific tasks, we have within our Fairhaven village a small section serviced by a team of full-time carers, available for scheduled daily or weekly assistance in the few tasks which you might struggle with on your own.
When you join the ECHO family, we commit to supporting your new lifestyle and ensuring that you have an enjoyable and exciting retirement.
