No, you are signing a lifecare contract. Though you do not own your apartment, your entrance fee and monthly fees entitle you to enjoy your residence as well as all amenities. When your health declines and additional health care services are needed, your monthly fee will increase depending on the level of care required. To learn more about lifecare please contact a Bay Village sales associate.
Bay Village is a Florida non-profit corporation founded by the Pine Shores Presbyterian Church. What is a non-profit corporation exactly? A non-profit corporation does not have stockholders like a regular corporation. Instead of stockholders, Bay Village has elected directors chosen by members of the Pine Shores Presbyterian Church. The business of Bay Village is conducted under the direction of its voluntary Board of Directors—all of whom serve without pay.
