FAQ

  • How much does it cost?
    Our cost varies as it depends on the level of care required.
  • What are your visiting hours?
    Most any time! Family is always welcome. But most of our residents retire early so to be considerate we do prefer if guests let our residents retire by 8:30pm, so those sleeping are not disturbed.
 
  • How many people do you have on staff?
    We have 2 full time live-in staff available. And 2 other staff who does not live on the premises.
  • Do you know CPR?
    All our staff are trained in CPR and First Aid procedures.
  • Do you distribute Medication or let them take their own?
    Under state guidelines it is our responsibility to properly distribute all medications to our residents.
  • Do you take your residents to their personal doctor appointments?
    Not usually, but we can take them for a fee if you are unable to do so.
  • I have heard of other larger facilities charging "A La Carte" what is that?
    Many large facilities charge a basic rate and then charge a fee every time they have to visit your room to help you, those fees can range from $5.00 to $40.00 per trip to the residents room. We do not charge "a la carte"our fee is based on care level and is all inclusive.
  • Do you have doctors that come to your facility?
    Greatfully many patients can be seen by our geriatric house doctor, who comes to the house monthly to assess each resident on a regular basis. The doctor also comes more often if a resident has a special need. We also have access to a wide range of therapists (physical, occupational, speach) and a foot doctor that can come to the home.
  • What if I need help in the middle of the night?
    We have Emergency Call Buttons available in the rooms and personal buttons for those that have a greater fall risk. You just push the button and it alerts the staff that you are in need of help.
  • Will I have my own bathroom?
    You may have a semi-private bathroom depending on the room but we have a "family home" atmosphere and therefore we do not have the same features as an institutionalized facility. With a capacity of only 6 people, you will find private baths an unnecessary expense.
  • Do you celebrate Birthdays?
    Yes, we do! We always bake a cake and have a party. If you have a special request for a dinner or have a favorite meal, this is your day!
