Steps to Francois Bend becoming your new home

A staff member is available every step of the way to assist prospective residents and their family members in making the sometimes challenging move from a private home or apartment to a community living campus:

  1. We encourage you to visit other facilities in your target area.  We believe you will find Francois Bend to be an excellent value in terms of both facilities and services.  
  2. To reserve an apartment: Complete an application and attach a check for $1500. If you become a resident, the $1500 becomes the required community fee and if you do not become a resident the $1500 is refunded.
  3. Your healthcare provider must complete the evaluation form included in your application package. If you do not currently have a healthcare provider, Francois Bend will assist you in locating one.
  4. Your individual service plan is developed.
  5. Select an apartment. Take advantage of pre-leasing offers.
  6. You and your family can now calculate your monthly fee, which is the apartment rent plus level of service required plus any additional services selected.
  7. Complete the residency agreement and select a method of payment.
  8. Establish a move-in date. If desired, a consultant is available to help with downsizing, including furniture selection and placement.
  9. Settle into your new home. Orientation programs are available at your convenience.
  10. Host a welcome dinner for your family members and friends.
