Life Care Plan

This traditional plan, also known as Fraternal Care, is available to any Master Mason who becomes a member of a Florida Lodge prior to the age of 70. He must be a member in good standing of a Florida Lodge for at least ten years and continually for the last three. The wife or widow of a Master Mason is eligible for residency based on his membership. Under the Life Care Plan, assets owned by the Resident such as property, bank accounts, stocks, social security, pensions, etc., are deposited with the Masonic Home. These assets are then converted to cash to establish a Resident Maintenance account. Each month, this account is debited to cover the cost of care. Residents retain 10% of any liquid assets, initially and subsequently, in excess of $10,000 for personal use. When assets are exhausted, the Masonic Home continues to provide care throughout the lifetime of the Resident regardless of his/her ability to pay.

Private Pay Care

In 2017, the Grand Lodge of Florida voted to admit non-Masons to the Masonic Home of Florida on a private pay basis. This is in addition to the Masons and their family members already eligible to apply to the Home under the private pay care. Residents pay a monthly fee for Assisted or Skilled Nursing care and enjoy all that the Masonic Home has to offer. For couples entering the Home, the second person fee is discounted. Residents retain all control of their assets.

Applicants for the Private Pay admission should contact the Masonic Home directly to schedule a private tour and begin the application process.
