Frequently Asked Questions

What costs are associated with living in a Cottage or Independent Living apartment?

To become a Member at Sterling Estates you pay a one-time membership fee to rent the cottage of your choice with a percentage of the membership fee being refundable. Moving into the perfect cottage at Sterling Estates does not involve the stresses of a typical real-estate transaction. We also offer lower membership fees that are non-refundable for our independent apartments. Becoming a member at Sterling Estates is much like joining a country club. You pay a one-time membership fee and then pay monthly fees due each month.

Are meals included?

Our Cottages and Independent Living Apartments have fully equipped kitchens and comfortable dining rooms, where residents may prefer cooking their own meals. Alternatively we have varied monthly meal plans offered (and included in your base rent) during the day through our 2 different dining venues during the day. Dining is an important part of our residents’ day and we are very proud of what our Sterling Grill and Hampton Club dining venues offer our residents.

Are there additional costs for the wellness programs?

Wellness at Sterling Estates is an integral part of our daily lives and we believe our Sterling Strong wellness and preventive health care programs are very effective in helping one improve his or her physical or mental well-being.  We believe this is a core value proposition for our residents that sets us apart from other communities and can be a material benefit for residents that take advantage of our person-centric wellness model. There are no additional costs associated with participating in our Sterling Strong wellness programs, using our exercise facilities, or swimming in the pool by yourself or with friends and family.

What if my health needs change?

Should the need arise, all Cottage and Apartment Suite residents are guaranteed priority for an Assisted Living Suite in the Main Residence without the charge of a community fee (one month’s rent). These Suites in the Main Residence were designed to meet both Independent and Assisted Living needs. For couples, when one spouse comes to need assistance, residents only pay for the specific Assisted Living services required. We do have a number of residents who need no assistance living in our Main Residence, just to be close to our Wellness Center and Main Dining venues.
