Benefit from a Life-Care-in-Your-Life Kind of Community

Cascade Village at Smokey Point is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), also known as a life plan community. We offer an all-inclusive Life Care contract, which protects you from the future expenses of long-term care, if you should need it.

How you benefit from a CCRC

Why should you move to a CCRC? Here are the major benefits of living at Cascade Village:

  • Multiple residential independent living options: one- and two-bedroom apartments, two-bedroom villas and three-bedroom penthouses
  • Guaranteed access to advanced healthcare support, including assisted living, memory care, long-term skilled nursing and short-term rehabilitation
  • Increased social engagement and a bigger social network
  • A maintenance-free lifestyle, where all interior and exterior maintenance is provided
  • Potential tax benefits
  • Access to higher levels of healthcare, if you need it

Our levels of care explained

If you need a bit more information about the levels of care that we offer in our CCRC, you’ve come to the right place.

Independent Living

Live unassisted in your residence of choice. The goal is to move into a CCRC while you are still independent, so you can enjoy all the CCRC amenities and benefits.

Assisted Living

If your care needs increase, assisted living provides 24/7 access to medical and custodial care. Staff members are available to help with activities of daily living.

Memory Care

Memory care supports seniors with memory loss due to dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or other cognitive impairments. Personalized care that keeps residents comfortable, engaged and safe.

Skilled Nursing

When you need more care than assisted living, skilled nursing provides 24/7 medical and custodial care. We offer long-term skilled nursing for ongoing needs, and short-term care and rehabilitation for extra care while recovering from surgery, a stroke or any temporary condition.

Understand the costs of a CCRC

CCRCs are entrance fee communities, which means you pay a one-time entrance fee to secure lifetime availability and priority access to housing and care in the community. That’s right, you’re investing in the peace of mind, knowing you will always be cared for and never be asked to leave, even if you run out of funds.

Entrance Fees

An entrance fee is a one-time, lump sum that you pay to live in the community. It’s based upon factors such as the apartment’s square footage, the view and the number of occupants.

At Cascade Village, entrance fees start at $253,000 for a one-bedroom apartment and increase, based on the size of the apartment and the number of total occupants (maximum of two per apartment). Many residents sell their existing homes to finance their entrance fee.

Monthly Fees

In addition to the entrance fee, CCRCs have a monthly fee, which essentially covers your rent and all the amenities.

Monthly Fee: $2,900-$7,300
Second-Person Flat Monthly Fee: $1,200

Cascade Village’s monthly fee includes:

  • Life Care benefit and a continuum of care
  • Weekly housekeeping, including changing of bed linens
  • Full gourmet kitchen and washer/dryer in apartment
  • All utilities, including heat and A/C, which you control in your apartment
  • Private, one-car garage
  • 24-hour security, gated community and an emergency alert system
  • Interior and exterior maintenance
  • Property taxes
  • Concierge services
  • Group and point-to-point transportation services
  • Fitness center with instructors and classes
  • Heated pool and spa
  • Life-enriching activities, social events and education
  • Flexible meal plan, where you can eat in the restaurant, bistro or bar
