What To Expect
Wondering what life will be like when you move to Mera?
Let us tell you!
Many people wonder what they will do every day when they move to Mera. The answer is: whatever you want! Moving to Mera means you get to keep doing everything you already love in life, plus you have the opportunity to try out new activities and say goodbye to the hassles of homeownership. Just imagine: never again will you be stuck at home waiting for the plumber to show up.
You can start your day quietly in your home, or join neighbors in the clubhouse for a morning cup of coffee and the latest news. You might be surprised by how friendly and welcoming your new neighbors are, but we’re sure it won’t take long for you to see that everyone is truly enjoying the Mera life—and they want to welcome you to the club!
Feel like getting some exercise? Drop by for one of our daily fitness classes, swim a few laps in the pool, play a game of pickleball, or take your dog for a stroll on the walking trails. Our daily activities are posted in the clubhouse and on your monthly activity calendar, so you’ll always know what’s coming up. Fitness classes and social gatherings are a great way to meet your neighbors—and they’re free!
Hungry? For those who love to cook, your spacious kitchen is well-equipped so you can prep your favorite meals with ease, and we’re here to help if you need assistance with your new appliances. If you prefer dining out, go for it! Our convenient covered parking or private garages make it easy to come and go as you please.
Planning a trip? You’ll probably find that going on vacation has never been easier. Just lock your door, and you’re off. If you’re running through your travel checklist and realize you forgot to adjust the thermostat—not to worry! Give us a call and we’ll take care of that for you. Whatever brings you bliss, life at Mera gives you the freedom to enjoy it all—while we worry about the rest.
Ready to take the next step and
treat yourself to stunning? Let us
help you plan your move.
No matter where you’re moving from, you’ll likely do some reorganizing and cleaning out, and if you’re moving from a larger house to a senior apartment home you will need to decide which items to keep and which ones you no longer need. The downsizing process can feel daunting if you think about doing it all at once. Let us assure you, more than 50% of our residents move here from single-family homes and have been through the same experience. If you ask them, they’ll tell you it was the best decision they’ve made!
If it feels overwhelming, remember to take your time, get help from others, and break the process into manageable pieces.
Our on-site team would love to recommend local downsizing and moving experts to make your move as seamless as possible so you can be doing what you’ve dreamed in no time.

WHAT IS ACTIVE ADULT LIVING?
Active Adult Living is a maintenance-free lifestyle that allows those who are 55+ to enjoy complimentary, weekly activities and friendships with others in their same stage of life. Active Adult communities do not provide or require any food plans, transportation, or health assistance. It is simply a home to enjoy without the yard work, home repairs, or required upkeep. This is your time to do what you've dreamed—and leave the rest up to us.
HOW DO I QUALIFY TO LIVE HERE?
Mera Westgate is an Equal Housing Opportunity Provider and operates in accordance with the Federal Fair Housing Act. All applicants will be screened through a background and consumer credit check. In order to qualify, all applicants per home must cumulatively make 2.5 times the monthly rent in income. In addition, one applicant per home must be 55 years of age or older, and his/her spouse or roommate cannot be younger than 35. See the full Statement of Rental Policy for all qualifying questions and details.
WHAT WILL I DO EVERY DAY?
Anything you want! That is the great part of a senior community designed with you in mind. Mera Westgate hosts social engagements weekly. You can join in as little or as much as you would like. Have a suggestion or preference for activities? We would love your input! Our teams work hard to continually enhance and improve our events to make sure you’re empowered to enjoy each and every day.
WHAT KIND OF ACTIVITIES WILL BE OFFERED?
Our retirement communities are based on active adults. We've found that many of our residents like to start their own classes/groups within our senior communities, which we encourage. We also provide fitness classes each week. We have offerings of various crafts, speakers, entertainment, and social gatherings. A monthly calendar will be provided.
CAN I BRING MY PETS?
Absolutely. We love our furry friends, and our dog park is always a popular gathering spot. We just ask that you register them with the front office and pay a one-time pet deposit and $10/month rent per pet. Breed and weight restrictions do apply, so please contact us if you are uncertain about your pet.
CAN MY FRIENDS, CHILDREN, AND GRANDCHILDREN VISIT?
Absolutely. We love all guests. We just ask that you notify the office if they stay longer than three consecutive days, with a maximum stay of seven days. We also ask that a resident accompany the guest at all times when enjoying our public amenity spaces.
IS THERE A SHUTTLE SERVICE?
We do not offer a shuttle service. If you are in need of transportation, our team can help you request a ride service. We may at times offer shuttles for property specific events and outings.
ARE THE APARTMENT HOMES FURNISHED?
Our homes are designed for you to add your personalized touch. For that reason, we do not offer furnished homes. If you need help purchasing new furniture, we are more than happy to recommend local retailers.
WILL THERE BE WASHER/DRYERS AVAILABLE?
Washers and dryers are provided in every unit. Unfortunately, you may not bring your own appliances to your apartment.
WHY ARE SOME FLOORPLANS MORE THAN OTHERS?
Pricing varies by location, view, and apartment size. Please see our Sales Manager to find the one that best fits your preference and budget.
ARE UTILITIES INCLUDED?
As with home ownership, you are responsible for typical monthly utility costs. Trash and Pest Control are flat fees paid along with your monthly rent. Water is billed separately based on consumption. If you need assistance setting up other utilities, we’re happy to help.
ARE THE COSTS OF ACTIVITIES INCLUDED?
All of our regularly scheduled activities, classes, and on-site events are free and included with your monthly rent. These include fitness, dance, music, cooking, movie nights, social events, and more. Occasionally we will offer events that require a charge for outside transportation, admission, or other accommodations. Only those who participate in these events are responsible for payment.
