Here is some straightforward information about how entrance fees at Capital Manor work – and how they can be a great value.

Why pay an entrance fee?

  • It gives you access to our on-site Residential Care Facility– including 90 days at no additional cost.
  • As a non-profit continuing care retirement community, we’re able to invest your fees back into the services and amenities you enjoy every day.
  • With our Return-of-Capital option, you are guaranteed 50% of your entrance fee back to you or your estate, regardless of how much health care you use here.

How does it save you money?

  • It gives you access to continuing care at a lower cost – usually half of the cost of the Salem average.
  • Lower monthly fees. This can save you thousands of dollars over your lifetime.
  • Lower out-of-pocket expenses. You don’t have to pay property taxes, HOA dues, assessment fees, or homeowner’s insurance.
  • Potential tax deductions. Part of your fees may qualify for a medical expense tax deduction. Talk to your tax advisor for details.
