FAQs in St. Augustine, FL
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do you purchase these apartments or rent them?
We are a rental community that does not require a “buy-in” fee up front. That is a common practice with other upscale retirement communities. Being a “Rental” community Allegro is responsible to maintain, fix, and care 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 offers Independent and Assisted Living with the majority of focus on programs and services that help a person remain as independent as possible no matter what level of care they may need. Allegro accomplishes this through wellness programs, dining services, social events, and the many amenities within the community. For residents requiring assisted living, trained caregivers assist residents with activities of daily living and programs designed to meet each resident’s unique needs. Physical therapy is offered on the premises and occupational therapy services are also 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.

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.
