Life Plan Community


We're Putting the "C" in Choice.

At Sierra Winds, we believe your future should feel secure. That’s where our Type C Fee-for-Service contract and rental options come in. Our living options cater to the diverse needs and preferences of older adults – with less upfront financial commitment and more time to live independently for as long as possible.

We’re putting convenience, comfort, cost-effectiveness, and care into senior living, allowing residents and their families to shine brighter and live bolder.


A forward-thinking plan for your health and finances frees you to fully enjoy the rich lifestyle now with less worry and less stress.

Type C Fee-for-Service Contract

Our Type C Fee-for-Service contract offers seniors the perfect balance between flexibility and peace of mind. This option allows residents to enjoy the full benefits of the Sierra Winds lifestyle, with the added flexibility of paying for health care services as needed. It’s ideal for residents who are currently independent but want the security of accessible long-term care without the upfront costs associated with more inclusive entrance fee contracts.

If – and when – care is needed, residents can seamlessly transition to our on-site rehabilitation center or skilled nursing center or receive personalized resident services for an additional cost. We offer multiple levels of care to ensure residents feel confident in their decision to move to our Life Plan Community, also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC).

Senior Living Rental Options

Understanding the need for flexibility, Sierra Winds also offers senior living apartment rentals. This hassle-free housing option is perfect for individuals who prefer to avoid committing to a long-term senior living contract. Our rental residents enjoy the same beautiful floor plans, access to our wide range of services and amenities, and vibrant community life with the convenience of a monthly lease.

Experience the Power of Choice at Sierra Winds

Discover the inviting atmosphere at Sierra Winds and learn why we’re the ideal senior living community in Peoria, Arizona, for seniors seeking a flexible lifestyle. Whether you’re exploring senior living options for yourself or a loved one, our dedicated staff members are here to provide all the information you need to know about our contract types and help guide you through the decision-making process.

We offer 2 options for Type A Life Care contracts. One is our Return of Capital plan, which offers residents smart asset protection. This contract requires a one-time entrance fee, 80% of which will be returned to you or your estate. The second Life Care contract option is a more traditional contract for those who prefer a smaller entrance fee. The smaller entrance fee will amortize over time, until eventually there will be no return of capital.

Under both of the Life Care contract options, the resident will have access to a continuum of care with little change to their monthly fee. Though, the Return of Capital plan covers a private room in Skilled Nursing, and the traditional contract covers semi-private accommodation.

For those who cannot or do not want to invest in Life Care, we also offer the option to rent your apartment home. Seniors with a rental contract will have access to all the benefits of community living, but will not have the security of priority access to care.

You also have the option to rent your apartment home. You will still enjoy the community and lifestyle benefits, but long-term care benefits aren’t included in the rental contract.
The monthly fees include weekly housekeeping with linen and towel service; preventive maintenance; utilities (water, gas, electric, basic phone and basic cable); choice of several meal plan options; access to common areas, including the fitness center. Under either of our Life Care contracts, residents also have access to our long-term senior health care services. There are, however, additional charges for Resident Services, which is specialty care provided to independent living residents who need a small amount of health care support to remain comfortably independent.
The Sierra Winds Charitable Foundation provides confidential financial assistance for Life Care services to residents who, through no fault of their own, outlive their resources.
Both the entrance fee and monthly fee will vary according to the residence, apartment size and the number of occupants. But, as a not-for-profit community, a portion of both the entrance fee and the monthly fee may be tax deductible.
