How much is rent at Holiday Retirement?

The price of senior living is more affordable than you think. Holiday prides ourselves on making an all-inclusive, vibrant retirement lifestyle attainable to older adults. Monthly rent varies by location, apartment size, and floorplan. Contact us to receive individual pricing for the Holiday retirement community of your choice.

What is the community fee?

Do you offer specials or discounts?

As the oldest and largest independent senior living company in the country, Holiday has always been focused on providing quality senior living at an affordable price. We are constantly reviewing each market to keep our rates competitive and affordable. On occasion individual communities may offer a special or discount.

Can I have pets?

Yes, for a nominal pet fee. We welcome all kinds of pets into our Holiday family like dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, and fish. Some of our communities even have dog parks. If you have a furry friend already, we can't wait to meet them. If you're thinking about getting a pet, read this to see if a pet is right for you.

What are Holiday’s protocols around COVID-19?

Our infectious disease protocols are rooted in a 50-year history of putting the health and well-being of our residents and staff first. In light of the pandemic, we’ve greatly enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols, require masks, and have made changes to dining and daily activities to support social distancing. All of our decisions are guided by the CDC and medical experts. Learn more about what we’ve done to mitigate COVID-19 and the rollout of the vaccine in our senior living communities.

What types of activities do you offer?

Each senior living community has its own resident experience coordinator who plans a full calendar of activities each month. Activities vary by community but may include things like bean bag baseball, bingo, painting classes, balloon volleyball, Wii football, happy hours, pool noodle hockey, knitting groups, tailgating parties, and more. With cooking, cleaning, and maintenance all taken care of, you also have more time for your own hobbies and interests. Consider sharing your favorite hobbies with the community. Many of our activities are resident-led, and we’re always open to new ideas.

What is the food like?

Our culinary team prides itself on chef-prepared meals that are delicious as well as well-balanced. Menus are diverse and designed to support your well-being without sacrificing taste. Enjoy a blend of comfort foods, regional favorites, and healthy choices.

Do you offer medical and personal assistance?

Residents in our independent living communities enjoy the flexibility of using in-home health care if they need assistance with personal or medical care. Our assisted living communities offer help with dressing, bathing, toileting, and other needs. Residents in both our assisted and independent living communities are equipped with Lively Mobile Plus, a GPS-enabled, two-way communication emergency response device. Residents use these if they have an emergency or urgent need. They work both inside and outside the community. Our emergency response devices foster independence while keeping you safe.

What is included in housekeeping?

Weekly housekeeping includes dusting and cleaning surfaces, sweeping, vacuuming, emptying trash, linen service, and providing new toilet paper. We also sweep patios, clean the air conditioner and heat filter, wash windows, and defrost and clean the refrigerator regularly. Learn more about housekeeping at Holiday.

Can I have a car?

Absolutely. Many of our residents have cars while others prefer to leave the driving to us. We offer complimentary transportation to appointments, errands, shopping, and community outings, so you can drive as much or little as you want.
