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.
