FAQs in Hyde Park, FL
1. Do you purchase these apartments or rent them?
We are a rental community that does not require a “buy-in” fee up front, but we do have a small administrative Move-in Fee. That is a common practice with other upscale retirement communities. Being a “Rental” community Allegro is responsible for maintaining, fixing, and caring for your apartment along with common areas and all appliances.
2. Do you accept pets?
Yes, we do accept pets but only with the approval from our Community Director. We will assess the pet’s veterinarian records, temperament, size and weight. Allegro understands many individuals are very attached to their pet and having a cherished pet greatly enhances a person’s quality of life. Allegro also recognizes that not everyone enjoys having pets so there are rules and restrictions within the community regarding the responsibility of that pet to its owner.
3. What levels of care are offered if needed at Allegro?
Allegro has 136 apartments, and Independent and Assisted Living are offered throughout the community. The majority of our focus is on programs and services that help a person remain as independent as possible, no matter what level of care is needed. Allegro accomplishes this through wellness programs, dining services, social events, and the variety of amenities within the community. For residents requiring assisted living, trained caregivers assist residents with activities of daily living, and programs are designed to meet each resident’s individual needs. Physical, occupational, and speech therapy are offered onsite and are available when ordered by a physician.
4. What is “Independent Living” and what does it offer?
Independent Living combines the convenience and comfort of community living with the independence of a private apartment, and is designed for seniors who do not require personal assistance with activities of daily living. Allegro Independent Living offers freedom from the worries and responsibilities of maintaining a home, while offering many of the conveniences that make life easier and more enjoyable, including all day dining with delicious chef-prepared meals, weekly housekeeping and convenient transportation to shopping and appointments. Also offered are fitness and wellness services, regularly scheduled social opportunities, and a resident emergency response system available 24 hours a day.
5. What is “Assisted Living” and what does it offer?
Assisted living provides personal care services to seniors who value assistance with activities of daily living, including help with medication management, bathing, dressing, mobility, housekeeping, personal laundry, and more. For seniors who value their independence, but appreciate support with daily tasks, Allegro Assisted Living begins with a Customized Service Care Plan. This plan outlines areas of assistance that our dedicated care staff will provide. Resident peace of mind is a priority at Allegro. Care staff are available 24 hours a day, and a one-touch resident emergency response system is monitored around the clock for added reassurance.
6. What does “All Day Dining” mean?
All Day Dining provides residents the flexibility to eat when they choose. Although Allegro has scheduled meal times, all day dining provides for meals anytime between 7am-7pm.
7. If I would like to sell my house do you offer any help?
Yes, Allegro does offer a “Deferred Fees Program” in which, we can defer 50% of your monthly fees up to 6 months in order to help you financially while selling your house. In addition to our “Deferred Fees Program” we work closely with the best local realtors so they can become your trusted advisors toward a successful sale of your home.
8. What happens when I need to move from Independent to Assisted living?
If an Independent Living resident needs Assisted Living, he or she would be able to stay in the same apartment and begin services immediately. However, we would need to sign new paperwork, have a nurse's assessment and a physician's order. This is a benefit to our Independent Living residents because if a day should come when they need more help, there is no reason to move apartments.
9. What types of transportation services are available?
Allegro offers a 13-passenger bus for group trips and a Mercedes S-class for our driver to take you to appointments in town. We offer transportation services seven days a week, with alternating services on different days. Our Senior Living Advisors can provide you with all the details of transportation service offered each day of the week.
