Cottage types and options
Melur Meadows provides various models of apartments including studio, studio plus, semi-deluxe and deluxe cottages. When available for purchase, the apartments come unfurnished or furnished. The cottages are available for short-term rent (for recuperating from surgery/illness), long-term lease or out right purchase (for people intending to live the rest of their lives there). Rooms can be rented on a daily, weekly or monthly basis while long term lease (3 – 20 years) works based on a refundable deposit ranging from 8.5 lakhs to about 15 lakhs depending on the type of cottage chosen.

All apartments are accessible by wheelchairs and there are extended ramps to the apartments on the first floor as well. The entire community has a capacity to accommodate about 270 people.

Food
There is a common kitchen that prepares vegetarian fare and provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner apart from coffee/tea twice a day. While non-vegetarian food is discouraged, residents can buy cooked food from outside and consume it within their residences. Estimated monthly costs for food is about Rs.5000 per person.

Access to Doctor / Hospital
Local doctors are available and Melur Meadows also has a tie-up with KPS Hospitals which is 8 Km away. This is a multi-speciality, multi-bedded hospital with ambulance services and provisions for house calls. Other hospitals are also within reach, both at mettupalayam as well as in Coimbatore.

Other details you should be aware of

  1. Only people above the age of 55 years are eligible to be residents.
