A Financial Structure Designed Exclusively for Retirees

Tallgrass Creek’s financial model is ideal for seniors who want predictable expenses and protection for their hard-earned savings.

There Are Two Basic Costs to Living at Tallgrass Creek:

  1. A 90% Refundable Entrance Deposit* that secures your Tallgrass Creek independent living apartment home. These funds are returned to you or your beneficiaries when you leave the community.

  2. An affordable Monthly Service Package that covers utilities, property taxes, and most other regular bills. You write just one check for an amount that stays predictable all year long.

Additional Safeguards for Your Retirement

In addition to a sound financial structure, Tallgrass Creek provides these advantages:

  • Fee-for-Service Community
    Tallgrass Creek doesn’t require you to pay for health care services that you may never use. Rather, you only pay for higher levels of care if and when they are needed—an approach that could save you and your family thousands of dollars every year that you remain independent.

  • Home for Life Commitment
    Tallgrass Creek maintains a Resident Care Fund designed specifically to assist eligible residents who outlive their resources. In the 8 years we’ve been in existence, no one has ever been asked to leave the community because of a genuine inability to pay.

  • Profits Stay With Tallgrass Creek
    As a not-for-profit community, we reinvest earnings into the community to provide residents with an exceptional lifestyle at a predictable and affordable cost.


Part of a Thriving Family of Communities

Tallgrass Creek is one of 19 communities managed by Erickson Living, a national leader in senior housing and health care. Over 24,000 seniors currently call an Erickson campus their home.
