Independent Living FAQ

You Have Questions, StoneBridge Has Answers.

What exactly is Independent Living?

Independent Living, also called a senior living community, is for those people who are able to live on their own but who no longer wish to maintain a home.

Is StoneBridge at Winton Woods Catholic?

While Mercy Health is a partner at StoneBridge, people of all faiths are welcome here.

What happens to our entrance fee if we move?

Upon vacating a cottage, you (or your estate) will receive 100% of your entrance fee. Of that, 50% is refunded within 12 months, and the remaining 50% is refunded within 24 months of vacating. Or, if the cottage is resold, you, or the estate immediately receive the entrance fee. There is also a 75% refund option available.

How fast can we move in once we decide to do so?

The first factor is the availability of a cottage. There are 76 cottages and, of course, availability—especially of a cottage style you prefer—may vary. Once a cottage is available, you select paint and carpet colors and we’ll need some time (usually about two weeks) to get your new home ready. Rest assured, our caring service extends to making sure we get you in as quickly as possible, while also making sure we prepare the house so you love it when you do move in.

What’s the difference between Independent Living, Assisted Living and other senior living options?

The key difference between Independent Living and other housing options is the level of assistance offered for daily living activities and health care. If you, or your loved one requires round-the-clock help with eating, dressing, and using the toilet, or requires regular medical assistance, other housing options such as assisted living, memory care or skilled nursing may be a better fit.

Can I bring my pet?

Absolutely. Cats, dogs and birds are always welcome!

What happens if I go to Florida during the winter months?
