Meal Allotment plans converting to declining balan...

We did this last year at John Knox Village in Pompano Beach, Florida. It was first offered as an option to current residents in independent living. I believe that it was either 15 meals OR $225 per resident per month. It was well advertised in advance and, after the usual grumbling that happen with any change, was very well received. It did of course require a contract change and agreement by the resident. The monthly allowance per person goes up each year by the same % as the increase in the resident maintenance fee. We are allowed to carry up to a total of $30 per resident forward at the end of the month.

As with most changes, it requires a lot of work, but in the opinion of the vast majority or my fellow  residents, is well worth the effort. It really helps if it is started as an option!!
