Are You Planning A Move In The Future? When Should You Get On The Wait List?

During the last year we have been extremely busy, and the number of people on our priority wait list continues to grow.  If you are interested in Independent Living with a move time frame of approximately five years from now, it would be a good idea to get on our wait list now.  If you are interested in Assisted Living the priority wait list is much smaller.

What Is A Priority Wait List?

This is a list of people who are interested in moving to Franke Tobey Jones. After touring you can let us know what building in which you are interested, and the size of apartment that you prefer.

When To Put Your Name On Our Wait List

It’s best not to wait until you NEED to move right away because most retirement, assisted living and memory care communities have waiting lists. Before you absolutely need to move, take the time to tour a few communities to understand all the differences, amenities, benefits, costs and availability at each one.

How Does the Priority Wait List Work?

To secure a place on the Franke Tobey Jones Priority Wait List, all you need to do is put down a deposit of $750 per person which is fully refundable if you decide not to move here. You can choose  to be on two different building wait lists – independent living, assisted living, memory care or skilled nursing. When we have an opening in a building that you are interested in and your name is at the top of the list, we call you. If you are not ready to move when we call, that is perfectly fine.  We will just move to the next person.

Internal Wait List – FTJ also has a list of residents who want or need to move to a different building. FTJ residents always have the priority to move, so even though your name may be at the top of the Priority Wait List, if an FTJ resident needs or wants to move, then they will be moved first. Many times people move into an FTJ apartment that may not be their first choice. They do this because when their desired apartment opens up, since they are an FTJ resident, they can chose to stay on campus where they are currently living or will have the priority to move first.

Adding your name to our Priority Wait List is one of the ways you can plan for your future. This step can give you and your loved ones a level of security, knowing that you will be well-cared for as you age. If you would like to tour the Franke Tobey Jones campus and any of our available apartments, please call 253-752-6621.
