What is Assisted Living?
The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) defines assisted living as a combination of housing, personalized supportive services, and health care designed to meet the scheduled and unscheduled needs of those who need help with activities of daily living.
How do I choose an Assisted Living residence ?
Choosing an assisted living community can be a challenge. However, there are some general guidelines that you should follow as you begin looking for an assisted living community for your loved one. For example consider the following:
Atmosphere: Is the decor attractive and homelike? Did you receive a warm greeting from staff welcoming you? Does the staff call residents by name and interact with them?
Physical Features: Is the community well designed for the resident's needs? Is the floor plan easy to follow? Are doorways, hallways, and rooms accommodating to wheelchairs and walkers?
Medication & Health Care: Does the community have specific policies regarding storage of medications?
Assistance with medications? Training and supervision of staff and record keeping? Is self-
administration of medication allowed?
Every aspect of our residences, from the physical building to the care and services provided, is designed to make our residents and future residents feel at home-their home.
Do I sign a lease?
No. We rent month to month. Residents must provide 30 days notice before leaving. An admission fee, which varies by location, will reserve an apartment.
Is the Admission fee refundable?
It is only until you move in.
What if I am ill or need help?
Our residences feature an emergency response system and someone is available 24-hours a day.
What happens if I need additional care while living at the residence?
We conduct regular assessments to determine if your individually prepared wellness plan should be modified and consult with you and your family members to adjust for changes.
I'm on a special diet, how is that handled?
Each residence employs a certified Dietitian and meals are planned to be nutritious support special diets.
