Skilled nursing fees

Fees for continuing care residents

Residents who are contracted with Vi for an Inclusive Care (Type A) life care contract will continue to pay their independent living monthly fee after moving to our care center. Their monthly fee will not change due to the need for a higher level of care, but ongoing community-wide monthly fee increases will continue to apply.

Some Vi Communities offer the Fee-for-Service Care (Type C) option, where you have access to the care you need, but your monthly fees will increase based on standard market rates for the care services required.

Both care options are subject to extra costs for ancillary items and additional meals received.

Fees for spouses who remain in independent living 

If a resident and their spouse are both contracted for life care at Vi, and only one resident requires a higher level of care, the spouse will remain in independent living while the other moves to our care center. If the resident has chosen the Inclusive Care option, both continue to pay only independent living monthly fees plus charges for additional meals and any other ancillary items received while in assisted living, as well as community-wide monthly fee increases.

If Fee-for-Service Care is the plan of choice, the monthly fee will increase to reflect standard market rates for the higher level of care, plus to cost of ancillary supplies and additional meals received.
