About Vi at Palo Alto

Vi at Palo Alto is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC for short). You may also hear it referred to as a Life Plan Community.

Situated in the heart of Silicon Valley and close to world-class academic institutions, Vi at Palo Alto is where culture and community intersect. Our community offers residents a resort-style independent living experience, along with access to a comprehensive continuum of care — all on a single campus. This all-in-one approach to senior living gives our residents the benefit of having a plan in place for future care, available when they need it. 

Vi at Palo Alto is an Inclusive (Type A) CCRC, which means residents’ monthly costs are predictable as they transition from their independent living home to more supportive or skilled care environments at the community. The model also ensures residents will know who will provide their care and where they’ll receive it.

Our pricing model

Entrance fees

At Vi, residents pay a one-time entrance fee when they move into the community, based on their chosen floor plan and repayment option. (This fee ensures access to higher levels of care with predictable increases in monthly fees.)

Repayment options

Repayment options return to a resident or their estate a portion of the entrance fee paid to Vi, should they leave the community for any reason.

Vi at Palo Alto offers 0% and 60% repayment options, which allows residents to choose the entrance free repayment option that best fits their long-term financial and wealth management plans.

Monthly fees

Monthly fees help to pay for a range of services and amenities (residents may incur additional fees for items such as extra meals and supplies). Annual community-wide monthly fee increases also apply, and our sales team can share historical data on these increases upon request.
