What does it cost to live at Serenity Lodge?
The D.O.H. sets a Daily Per Diem rate for each resident living in any Long Term Care facility that is part of their Continuing Care Sector.
This is set initially during the resident`s application process. Serenity Lodge’s November 1st 2012 max. daily rate was set as a R.C.F.. facility at $61.50 per day; no matter what your monthly income maybe.
Most residents pay less than this daily rate by submitting their annual income tax Notice of Assessment to the Dept. of H.&W. to apply for a decrease in their daily rate. This daily rate is assessed annually and can be changed annually on November 1st.
Serenity Lodge became licensed as a Residential Care Facility in Feburary 2012. Before that we were a Community Based Option Home. Any resident that was in a C.B.O. before this date was grandparented at the daily C.B.O. daily max.
