Where value, flexibility and a secure future meet.

Life at our enriching community is rooted in the Tel Hai covenant of providing a secure, worry-free lifestyle. Residents truly embrace the Redefining Retirement™ concept and create a retirement experience that is all their own.

In combination with our expansive accommodations, entrance fee and refund options, retirement living at Tel Hai is more affordable and flexible than ever.

As a Life Plan Community, the value of a retirement community like Tel Hai lies in the access to the full range of residential accommodations, continuing care services, amenities and services to secure your future.

Fee-For-Service Contract

Tel Hai offers a Fee-for-Service Contract (Type C). This contract includes benefits of residential living and amenities, but at a lower monthly fee and lower entry fees compared to Type A & Type B contracts. The full complement of residential services and amenities are provided, but if personal care, memory care, adult day services or skilled health care is required, the resident’s monthly fee will increase to reflect the market rate for the care received. Therefore, you only pay for the long-term care services you actually use.

Price Range

As a Fee-For-Service (Type C) contract community, residents of Tel Hai pay a one-time entrance fee and a monthly service fee. This means you pay only for the services you need, if and when you need them.

  • Entrance Fee: An entrance fee is a one-time fee paid when you move to Tel Hai that provides you priority access to the continuum of care, if or when your health needs change. The fee is based on the accommodation selected, single or double occupancy, and refund plan selected.
  • Monthly Fee: A monthly service fee is paid monthly for a wide range of amenities and services such as flexible dining dollars, building maintenance, lawn/grounds care, life enrichment activities, social programming, transportation services, fitness facilities, exercise classes, etc.
