Best of all, these campuses are Acts Retirement-Life Communities. That means, when you're a resident here, you'll benefit from having Acts Life Care® that covers almost all of your needs for the rest of your life. To help ensure peace of mind and financial stability, that monthly fee will never increase solely based upon your need for health care. In short, you can combine all of the unpredictable expenses of homeownership and future health care needs into a one-time entrance fee and predictable monthly fee.


If you qualify to itemize medical expenses, a portion of your entrance fee and monthly fees are tax deductible. Recently, the deductible amount of these fees has averaged 40%. This can represent a significant savings in taxes, which could make an Acts Retirement-Life Community a smart choice for you now and in the future.
