Senior Living FAQs

An apartment residence may have less square footage than your current home. But most people find they only use a few rooms in their house anyway. Your home here includes an expansive community with walking paths and manicured gardens, so you’ll have more room than ever to grow your lifestyle. Perhaps the biggest benefit: we take care of all maintenance, inside and out.

This is your life and your home. Do as much or as little as you like. There are countless opportunities for fun and fulfillment of all kinds. But, certainly, we all need time for relaxing and recharging, or simply some quiet time to ourselves. Being alone is always an option, but never a necessity.

Think of the monthly fee as a consolidation of all the bills and costs of living in a house. It covers all maintenance, housekeeping, your meal plan, water, cable, electricity, unlimited use of common spaces and campus amenities, plus all the benefits of Comprehensive Life Care.

They’re similar. Physical therapy helps restore strength and mobility. Occupational therapy helps people adapt to their social and physical surroundings through education in things like dressing, memory training and coordination exercises.

Hospice is also called end-of-life care. It focuses on pain management and symptom control, rather than curative treatment. It’s based on the notion that we are all entitled to comfort, compassion and dignity at the end of our lives. Hospice can be a great comfort to both the patient and family caregivers.

A physician should be the one to identify a life-limiting illness or condition, with death expected within six months. Often a patient lives longer than this. Hospice care is appropriate for terminal illness, including cancer, organ failures and all types of dementia. If you’re unsure whether you or a loved one needs hospice care, please contact us or your physician.
