Moving to Maris Grove Is a Smart Financial Decision

Value for price paid was a priority for Pete Davisson when he was exploring retirement living options with his wife Janet. “In the end, it was an easy decision to choose Maris Grove!” he says

When Pete and Janet Davisson were researching their retirement living options in 2017, they did their due diligence.

After carefully weighing all the factors that were most important to them, they were confident in their choice: Maris Grove, an Erickson Senior Living community in the Brandywine Valley of Pennsylvania.

“Janet and I made a very serious effort to compare all of our options,” Pete says.

“Value for price paid was our priority, so we compared four different communities in the immediate area. I even prepared an Excel spreadsheet with numbers and projections. In the end, it was an easy decision to choose Maris Grove!”

Worry-free living

Maris Grove’s industry-leading pricing structure is made up of two attractive components: the 90% refundable entrance deposit* and the monthly service package.

The 90% refundable entrance deposit, used to secure your desired apartment home, goes back to you or your beneficiaries if or when you leave the community.

The monthly service package covers the costs of utilities; a dining plan at on-site restaurants; maintenance, including appliance repair and replacement; access to amenities; regularly scheduled transportation; professional landscaping, and much more.

Having maintenance covered saves the Davissons both time and money. “When we studied what we were spending living in our house compared to the monthly service package, the numbers were surprisingly close,” he says. “The difference is that, now, I don’t have to do anything! All of those maintenance issues are taken care of for me.”

Access to amenities

With their newfound free time, Pete and Janet now embrace a vibrant lifestyle filled with social opportunities, clubs, and activities, as well as amenities like restaurants and the fitness and aquatic centers–at no extra fee.

“Maris Grove’s large campus and resident population were huge draws,” Pete says. “There are always new people to meet in the dining rooms or when we’re out for a walk.”

Although Pete is still working, he’s looking forward to exploring new interests. “When I retire, I want to join the bocce club here. There are also business clubs, camera clubs, and book clubs. With over 150 groups, it’s easy to find a club that interests you.”

Janet, already retired, is making the most of everything Maris Grove has to offer. “As a baseball fanatic, she regularly goes to baseball club meetings,” he says.

Sales Director Ryan Doherty notes that all of these amenities and opportunities add to Maris Grove’s value.

“When people visit campus, they’re often surprised to learn how much they can get for their money,” says Doherty. “Residents gain more than just a stylish apartment home–they gain a community filled with activities, social connections, and services that create a true value proposition.”

Convenient care

Maris Grove residents also have easy access to health care, with an on-site medical center for routine check-ups and a continuing care neighborhood if additional levels of care are ever needed in the future.

“Having health care on campus is a significant benefit for residents,” notes Assistant Director of Finance Christopher Bickel. “With so many levels of care available, including home support services, assisted living, and skilled nursing, residents never have to move from our community. They have a home for life at Maris Grove.”

Doherty adds, “Many residents tell me that their move to Maris Grove was a gift to their adult children, since they all gain peace of mind from knowing that their future is secure.”
