Spectacular views, gorgeous residences, wide-open spaces, and a relaxed and engaging way of life. These are some of the reasons why so many active people looking to simplify make their homes at The Arlington. And why it’s one of the best retirement communities in Naples, Florida. Opened in 2015 in Lely Resort, The Arlington offers luxury, maintenance-free Estate Homes and apartment residences together with premier amenities and a wellness-based lifestyle. As a Life Plan Community, residents also benefit from lifetime access to comprehensive care services at our Oakton Place Healthcare Center.
Life Plan Communities: A Great Life Today. And a Plan for the Future
The Arlington is not only Naples’ premier address for luxury retirement living. It’s also a Life Plan Community. It’s designed for people who want the recreational, social amenities and quality-of-life of an active adult community and the assurance of future care as they age. In addition to Independent Living, The Arlington provides on-site Assisted Living, Heartfelt Connections – A Memory Care Program®, Skilled Nursing and Short-Term Rehabilitation. These services are also available to older adults in the greater Naples area.
A Home for Life. Care for Life
Living at The Arlington allows people to age in place as their needs change. For example, an independent living resident can temporarily move to short-term rehab to recover from a knee replacement. And a resident who is beginning to need more assistance can transition to assisted living. This flexibility makes The Arlington ideal for couples who may age at different rates. With a continuum of care available, they can remain near to each other without having to leave the community.
An Active Lifestyle and Exceptional Amenities
Compared to other types of communities, The Arlington provides greater opportunities for social interaction, a focus on wellness, a wider range of activities and life-enriching amenities and services.
An Advantageous Financial Model
The cost structure of a Life Plan Community like The Arlington differs from that of a rental community or a condominium and provides several advantages, including more financial stability, asset preservation, and potential tax savings. Instead of rent or HOA fees, The Arlington residents pay:
- A one-time entrance fee (which can be up to 80% refundable). This guarantees a place in the community and lifetime access to any future on-site healthcare at a discounted rate.
- An ‘all-inclusive’ monthly service fee, which covers nearly all living expenses, including residence, utilities, maintenance and housekeeping; resort-style amenities and services; and a wealth of daily activities. There are no mortgage payments or property taxes. And unlike paying rent, any increase in the monthly service fee is based primarily on the rise in the cost-of-living – not supply and demand*.
The Arlington offers a variety of luxury apartment and single-family Estate Home floor plans – with entrance fees ranging from $318,000 to $1,787,000 and monthly fees ranging from $3,718 to $10,154. Fees are determined by the type of contract and the residence selected.
