“The community has for many years welcomed anyone who meets its financial and other admission criteria,” Ziegler said. “Aldersly is dedicated to serving the needs of its senior residents in the Danish tradition and spirit of respecting and caring for the elderly. The name Aldersly means ‘shelter for the aging.’”

Aldersly will use the proceeds of the sale of the Bonds and other available funds to refund the  outstanding Series 2002 Bonds; finance or reimburse the costs of constructing, renovating, remodeling and equipping the facilities at Aldersly; fund a debt service reserve fund for the Series 2015A Bonds; pay the remaining balance of the Help II Loan; and pay certain costs of issuance.

The 2015 Bonds were structured to extend the existing final maturity from 2032 to 2040, creating capacity to fund $1.7 million in new money without increasing annual debt service. 

“As a group, we set out on an aggressive timeline to capitalize on historically low fixed interest rates and managed to sustain that goal while maximizing Aldersly’s rating outcome with an initial bond rating of BBB+ from Fitch Ratings,” said Sarkis Garabedian, senior vice president in Ziegler’s senior living practice. “Through these successes we were able to deliver significant debt service savings and additional funds to Aldersly for capital improvements without increasing annual debt service.”
