Upside Home membership combines everything about our core offering with a stunning new apartment home offered by our hand-picked realty partners. These aging-friendly apartments are exactly like normal apartments but with one important difference. They’ve been personally vetted by us as being safe, ADA-compliant places to live where you’ll be surrounded by other adults and professionals. Let’s explore more reasons to consider an Upside Home membership for you or someone you care about.
Need more space? Less? We’ve also got studio apartments, one-bedrooms, and spacious three-bedroom options. So, if the layout you have your heart set on is currently unavailable, we’ll find you something similar – or better – within the same area. Typically we can get new residents moved into their homes within 60-90 days. That’s usually enough time to finalize details and coordinate your move, including safely packing up your belongings.
You’re an independent older adult. You’ve earned every mile on your odometer and you have no intention of slowing down now. If this sounds like you, an Upside Home membership is perfect for the next leg of your journey. That’s because we make it easy and fun to transition to your new home. Whether you’re downsizing, moving to be closer to the people you care about, or you just want to experience life in an exciting new location, here are some of the exclusive perks of an Upside Home membership.
Modern. Attractive. Spacious. Freshly renovated. These are a few of the words we hear when people see the condominiums and apartment buildings offered by our housing partners. There’s a good reason for the accolades. At Upside we partner with elite property managers who own and operate premium multifamily buildings. That means we can offer a seamless, stress-free transition from your current digs to wherever you’re headed next. It also means we can help secure a preferred rate. And, because these are certified aging-friendly apartment homes, you can relax knowing you’re in a good place both now and in the future.
The property managers we partner with offer truly incredible homes available in many different configurations. One of our most popular is the classic two bathroom, two bedroom setup. It’s great for having guests over – whether that means the grandkids or your new besties next door. This layout is also a nice choice if you’re looking to downsize because you still get ample living space but without the clutter traps.
Your Upside Home membership includes support from our dedicated real estate team. We’ll take care of everything from getting you approved, filing your paperwork and documentation, and negotiating with the management company.
When it’s time to move in, we are your single point of contact for getting you settled. We have a direct maintenance request line for your convenience, and we can help you manage your utility payments so you never have to worry about missing a deadline.
Imagine your friend just sent you a text. You’re invited out for a fun, spontaneous day with the whole gang. Only problem? Today was supposed to be your housecleaning day. With an Upside Home membership, you can pawn off your light household maintenance and chores to us! Just tell your Upside Manager what you’d like done, and they will take care of the rest.
Instead of receiving separate statements for your rent, utilities, and Upside Home membership fees, we simplify billing with one easy-to-read statement. This makes it easier to see how much of your money is going toward monthly rent, and how much is for your Upside Home membership dues. If you took advantage of any Upside service add-ons, like local transportation or daily meals, you’ll also see an itemized list for the billing cycle.
Your Upside Manager is your gateway to an array of bespoke services, social opportunities, and everyday conveniences. Our goal is to remove the annoying obstacles between you and the things you love so you can capture more time to enjoy the life you imagine.
Feel like doing something cool? Something fun, new, or exciting? What about something chill… something comforting and predictable? If you put a checkmark next to any of these options, then definitely check with your Upside Manager first. They have their fingers on the pulse of your community and they know what’s worth checking out – and what’s worth skipping. But your Upside Manager is more than just a walking encyclopedia of community events and attractions. That’s because they can also help you rediscover old passions or fall in love with new hobbies. For example, if you want to learn how to play the hottest video games like Fortnite or Minecraft, we can help you find a class or a group. Got a creative itch? Try something out of the ordinary like learning how to decorate a fancy cake or a painting class paired with a wine tasting.
When you can’t remember your wifi password or how to print a document with your wireless printer you could call your kids. Or a friend. Or even your neighbor. With Upside, you don’t have to burden any of those people. Your Upside Manager will get your tablet, phone, smart TV, wi-fi, and anything else you can think of, working the way it should. And if they can’t, they’ll set you up with someone who can.
Sure, you could go to the grocery store like a “normie.” Or you could save that for us. We’re happy to cross off your shopping list and deliver the goods directly to your door.
You’re an independent older adult. You’ve earned every mile on your odometer and you’re excited for the miles yet to come. What you’re looking for now is a little extra support for the road ahead. For you, it’s not that you particularly need any fancy services, you just like knowing they’re here for you.
Ahh health insurance. We all pay for it one way or another, but we don’t always use it to the fullest. Your Upside Manager can sniff out missed opportunities with your health insurance – and help you get back on track – like a well-trained bloodhound. Whether you’re paying too much for medication or you’re not taking advantage of the free or reduced-price benefits your plan offers, we leave no stone unturned.
While your Upside Home apartment is certified to be an aging-friendly environment, additional modifications are available as needed. From installing sturdy grab bars and no-slip surfaces to more significant adjustments, members can get discounted retrofitting services from our reliable partners.
When recovering from an illness, injury, or medical procedure, we can help you get the right level of home care so you can keep on living the dream. We can also set you up with our fall detection and medication reminder services for added peace of mind.
Upside Home members don’t need to navigate the health care system alone. When you join Upside, you can get help with care-related decisions, finding useful resources within the community, keeping track of appointments, or even basic advice when you’re not sure what to do next. For example, we can help you find new care providers after a move or if your family is unable to help.
When you just need to talk to a person – for whatever reason – Upside is here for you. Please call us during normal business hours, or leave a message and we’ll get back to you, usually within 24 hours. Or, fill out our contact form to schedule a meeting. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
Liking the looks of Upside membership but want to add a few premium services here and there? No problem. The base membership can be enhanced with an a la carte menu – only pay for what you want! You could add our local transportation services and daily meals, for example, while skipping things you may not need right now, like daily CNA visits.
We raise our kids to be better than ourselves. Which is why it’s so aggravating when they use our parenting against us! Look – they just want us to be safe, smart, and happy. If you’re fortunate to have adult children, close friends, or other loved ones who care about you, they will likely have questions about Upside. What it is. How it works. And if it’s the right fit for you. This is a good thing! We will happily answer any questions and spend as much time with your loved ones as needed to make sure everyone feels positively thrilled with what comes next.
It’s not always possible to be near the people we care about most. For adult children, this reality often comes with strong feelings of guilt. We get it. Some Upside Managers are adult children, too, and this is the life experience with which they approach their roles. It’s what informs their interactions with members and their families.
