general questions

In 1984, Ardmore Village opened its campus to senior residents aged 62+. Starting out, there were 54 cottages for independent-living seniors. Ardmore Village has grown over the years, and today there are 92 Cottages plus 19 Apartments, 18 Townhomes, and a 54-suite assisted-living residence.

Yes, pets are allowed and even encouraged at Ardmore Village! One small four-legged domestic pet is allowed per residence, though some residents are required to pay a pet deposit. Note: A pet deposit is not charged for independent-living residents. Residents at The Lodge, however, must pay a pet deposit. To be a pet owner at Ardmore Village, a resident must be able to care for their pet themselves.

We genuinely care about the health of our residents, and furry friends have at least five known health benefits for seniors, as follows:

  • It’s less likely a senior will become depressed or feel lonely.
  • Blood pressure is lowered.
  • Pain and anxiety are relieved.
  • Independence and mobility are improved
  • Living in the present moment is promoted among seniors with pets.

Yes, all faiths and denominations are absolutely welcome at Ardmore Village. We value freedom of religion.

To be an Ardmore Village resident at the Cottages and Apartments, you just meet these eligibility requirements, which will qualify you to receive a rent subsidy from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), though an exception also follows:

  1. You must be no younger than 62 years of age; and
  2. Your gross income must not exceed $1,829.17 per month for individuals or $2,091.67 per month for couples.

If a person younger than 62 meets the income limit plus qualifies as disabled or handicapped under HUD’s definition, he or she may be eligible for residency. Ardmore Village can at this time, however, accommodate only a mobility disability. 

If you are interested in becoming a resident at Ardmore Village, you must complete and sign an application.  If you qualify as a resident, you will be placed on the waiting list for either the Cottages or the Apartments, and the choice is entirely up to you. Acceptance on the waiting list is not a guarantee of residency.

Which Type of Ardmore Village Housing is Best For You?

Through the following series of questions, you may find it easier to determine whether The Cottages, Apartments, Townhomes, or a suite at The Lodge is the type of Ardmore Village residence most fitting for you to apply for.

You must qualify to receive a rent subsidy from HUD to be an eligible tenant for The Cottages or the Apartments at Ardmore Village. The income guidelines follow:

  • Your gross income total must not exceed $1,829.17 monthly or
  • For couples, the gross income total must not exceed $2,091.67 per month.

If you are eligible for HUD housing rental assistance and you are seeking independent living, your options at Ardmore Village are the Cottages or the Apartments. Decide which one you prefer and apply for that type of residence. More information about each is on this website.

The Townhomes at Ardmore Village are for independent living seniors but HUD subsidies are not available. Therefore, unlike the Cottages and Apartments, your income that’s too high to qualify for HUD is no problem. You can apply for a Townhome.

In our senior community, The Lodge is the right place to apply if you need assisted living on a small scale, such as help managing medications or getting dressed. We have certified professionals to help seniors with their daily needs, and each member of our assisted-living support staff is dedicated to exhibiting the highest level of professionalism.

The Townhomes at Ardmore Village have two bedrooms plus 1.5 to 2 bathrooms as well as a two-car garage and a fenced-in backyard. Lawn care is provided. No rent subsidies are available for the Townhomes. As a resident, you are welcome to participate in the many community activities. Are you a senior aged 55+ wanting to be part of a caring community? The Townhomes are the perfect fit for you!
