Additional Suite Information

Rent in seniors self-contained apartments is based on a rent-geared to income (RGI) formula. This means that rent is based on a percentage of the tenant’s adjusted income. In the case of a couple or two persons sharing a seniors self-contained apartment, the rent is based on the combined incomes of both. Rent is calculated at 30% of total gross income from all sources (i.e. pensions, investment income, etc.) with a maximum rate approved by the Governing Board (subject to review).

Additional Services

Seniors self-contained apartments are operated very much like private rentals. For example, staff are not on duty 24-hours a day. However tenants have access to staff for emergency situations, such as loss of heat or electricity, or plumbing problems, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.   Most of the subsidized apartment living facilities managed by The Bethany Group have the following services: private suites; maintenance; lounge and hobby areas.
