Funding Your Housing and Services

 
 

It is very expensive to pay for housing and support services.  It can be a complicated process with lots of paperwork.  Each different option has different costs and a different process.  Redeemer Services can explain what the hidden costs of different housing option and how to pay for them.

Residents entering any of these facilities are required to sign admission contracts that address the provision of services, their financial responsibilities, and the quality of care and services provided by the facility. This makes understanding the terms and conditions of the contracts extremely important.
