Why Choose Non-Profit

The fact there are differences between communities is expected, but many times those differences run deeper than some consumers choose to dig. For example what are some of the inherent differences between “For Profit” and “Non Profit” communities? How does knowing this information affect you now or in the future? Some of the more subtle differences would include:

  • Higher probability of change of ownership
  • Higher probability of turnover of residents and staff
  • Not typically on board with financial report disclosure
  • Need for higher profit margin may effect annual fee adjustments
  • Typically larger companies – less flexible

NON PROFIT COMPANY

  • The residents feel they have more of a vested interest in communities where they can be involved in decision making
  • Fee increases are based on need not profit
  • Benevolence giving and Life Care Benefits (ask us more)
  • Disclosure of annual financial reports
  • Stronger applicant screening practices
  • More resident centered environment
  • Feels more like family
  • Typically more longevity of service – reputation
