Exclusive Benefits to Members

The Odd Fellows Homes of California is proud to offer exclusive benefits to Odd Fellow and Rebekah members who choose to live in one of our beautiful Life Plan communities. These benefits apply to any care level an Odd Fellow or Rebekah member resides in, including Assisted Living, Memory Support or Skilled Nursing.

Financial Benefits

Any Odd Fellow or Rebekah who has been a member for 10 years or more will receive a 2% * monthly fee savings benefit for each year of membership, paid by the Odd Fellows Home Endowment Fund. For instance, a 30-year member would receive 60% off the monthly fee as shown in the example below:

30-Year Member Discount
Member Benefit (2% x # Years of Service) 2% x 30 = 60%

Monthly fee (varies by apartment)$3,900
Monthly fee discount (60% x $3,900)-$2,340
Member-exclusive monthly fee$1,560
Annual savings$28,080

Qualifying member spouseswho have been in good standing for 10 yearswill receive an additional 1% off the secondperson monthly fee for every year of service. For example, a 30-year member spouse would receive 30% off the secondperson fee as shown below: 

30-Year Qualifying Spouse Discount 
Member Benefit (1% x # Years of Service)

Second person fee (month to month)$1,007
Monthly fee discount (30% x $1,007)-$302
Member-exclusive second-person fee$705
Annual savings$3,624

Another example: If a qualifying member has been in good standing for 20 years, and their member spouse has been in good standing for 10 years, then 50% of their monthly costs will be paid by the Endowment Fund (40% plus 10%).  

* Monthly fees are including but not limited to healthcare, meals, utilities, wellness programs, social activities, maintenance services, and much more.

Additional Benefits

Once an Odd Fellow or Rebekah becomes a resident of either Saratoga or The Meadows, their monthly fee savings benefit can increase after five years of residency. Member residents of either community will also receive items of assistance through programs provided by The Grand Lodge and Rebekah Assembly. For example, their “Adopt-a-Resident” program provides cards and gifts to commemorate member birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. For those members that wish to stay in their homes, the Home Board also offers an assistance program that will provide aid and is available to all members through an application process.

Odd Fellows and Rebekah Member Resident Testimonials

Both Saratoga and The Meadows provide a luxurious retirement experience that seamlessly blends together the values of friendship, love, and truth with community fellowshipThe chance to live among other like-minded members, and the endless opportunities to continue to serve others, make both communities a place where members will feel at home.

Rebekah Member Resident Patricia Player
“Odd Fellow and Rebekah members are working-class people for the most part. As a retired teacher with limited income, the financial benefit I receive helps to pay part of my monthly costs, and if I didn’t have it, I wouldn’t be able to live here. I never dreamed I would have a benefit. It’s truly wonderful.”
Odd Fellow Member Resident Tom Collette
“If you want friendship, to meet new people, and you enjoy fellowship, this is the place to be. It’s nice to live in a community of like-minded people, and we can always use more Odd Fellows and Rebekahs to move in. Also, the financial benefits that you get for years of membership are huge.”
