Most recently and most exciting, South Port Square has introduced a new Flex Your Future Program which puts your dream retirement in reach. With less upfront, out-of-pocket cost and the flexibility of customized entrance fee options, more seniors are able to embrace the freedom of independent living.
As a Life Plan Community, South Port Square allows you to live a vibrant, active lifestyle now, knowing you’ll have the security and convenient access to higher levels of quality, on-campus care whenever you need it.
For an initial entrance payment and subsequent monthly fees, your living accommodations, services and amenities are customized to suit your personal lifestyle and changing needs, so you can reside in the appropriate level of care – whether it be assisted living, memory care, long-term care or short-term rehabilitation. A variety of financial programs allow you to preserve as much of your capitol as you wish, which you may then pass on to your estate.
Many residents use a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their home to find their entrance fee. The IRS has ruled that portions of both your entrance fee and monthly fee are deductible on your federal income return as prepayment of medical expenses. You can learn more by consulting your tax advisor.

Costs can vary widely depending on the community and the services offered.
A life care community (like South Port Square) typically offers a residency agreement with a one-time entrance fee along with a monthly payment that covers the services provided. The entrance fee and monthly fee will vary depending on the size of the residence and the number of occupants. The entrance fee, an initial, one-time expense, is held and used to provide for future care--such as assisted living, memory care, rehabilitation or long–term skilled nursing care--at prearranged rates with priority access, providing you assurance of the highest quality of care. When needs change, care is provided on site from people you already know and trust. In addition to an entrance fee, a monthly fee covers community maintenance, dining programs, and access to all the services and amenities of the community. Refundability of your entrance fee will vary by community.
