2 Brm/2Bath 979-1299 sft from $4,295 per month
I believe there is one time second person fee of $675 (if someone cohabits with you), and another one time, non-refundable community fee equal to the base monthly rental.
The place struck me like a college campus. I went there for my MIL primarily but I might make a deposit myself for me and my wife; the deposit, refundable, simply places you on the preferred list of openings, when vacancies arise. Of course, you can graduate at this place by going from Independent Living to Assisted Living and then to Memory Care, but this is a very small place, not like the bigger facility mentioned by the OP.
The presentation was well attended, about half of the people there were from the Sun City community in nearby South Carolina. This place:
Sun City Carolina Lakes | Active Adult Community Ft. Mill/Indian Land NC | Del Webb homes
. I sat at a table with a couple from Sun City as well as two elderly, single ladies from Sun City. And one mature lady from Sun City whose husband was in the early stages of dementia. The elderly single ladies, one with very limited mobility and the other as spry as a 20 year old, both over 70 years old, at least, were intending to move into the joint with deposits already placed!
