Lindenhaus is a three storey 90 unit apartment building operating on the life lease concept. This concept allows someone to purchase the right to occupy a particular unit and assures the resident of a permanent place to live, but without some of the responsibilities that accompany home ownership. A basic feature of this concept is that ownership of the building remains with Heidehof. This enables Heidehof to maintain control of the management and operation of the building. The occupant, therefore, does not purchase the apartment but rather purchases the right or privilege to occupy the apartment for the balance of their life, or until they decide to leave for whatever reason.
In other respects, this arrangement has many similarities to the present day condominium concept; the resident pays a monthly maintenance fee to cover the costs of taxes, utilities, reserves and maintenance. The resident also has the opportunity to use the existing services of Heidehof such as Assisted Living Services in Support Housing, our Community Aqua-Therapy Pool Program and many of our Sundry Services including congregate dining, entertainment events and special fund raising events.
Apartment units are generously sized and come in 8 different layouts. The breakdown of our units, their square footage and current price ranges are as follows:
