The Cost of Senior Living vs The Value

Finding the Right Community for You

In March, Brad Breeding, certified financial planner and national senior living expert, spoke to guests, current residents, and staff of Dallas Retirement Village (DRV) about the cost of senior living. He shared his expertise in senior living options, healthcare, and financial planning. Additionally, he shared why choosing a community like DRV—with readily available on-site healthcare, as needed—could be a smart decision for the future. Furthermore, Mr. Breeding stressed the importance of choosing the “right pathway toward retirement,” and encouraged attendees to get proper direction and avoid the distraction of improper signage along the way.

What Makes Dallas Retirement Village Unique?

To help you on your journey of discovering the perfect place for your retirement, we’d like to share with you what makes Dallas Retirement Village unique. Gone are the standard communities of yesteryear, where residents had few choices in residence styles or financial plans. In her recent blog, “6 Inspiring Ways Senior Living Communities Have Evolved Over the Years,” Tawnya Rohde, DRV’s Director of Sales and Marketing, will help you understand the most recent senior living trends and how they are positively impacting the lifestyle older adults desire.

Residence Options Make DRV Unique

One of the trends today’s seniors are calling for is OPTIONS, and Dallas Retirement Village answers the call. The community offers a friendly, welcoming neighborhood of friends.

So you can be sure Dallas Retirement Village has the right choice for you. Depending on your selection of residence, initial accommodation fees and monthly fees will vary. And, as a unique benefit to Dallas Retirement Village, if you transition into independent living, you will not be required to disclose financial or health pre-qualifications like most other communities.
