Frequently Asked Questions

Becoming informed about senior living choices is the first step towards making a good decision

General

  • What are the options for senior living?
    • Independent living is designed for healthy seniors who are able to manage safely and comfortably on their own.  A seniors residence that provides independent living suites will often provide meals, light housekeeping and an array of activities.
    • Assisted living provides assistance with the activities of daily living.  This is the choice for seniors who are able to manage some tasks on their own, but might require some assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming or medication reminders.
    • Long-term care provides around-the-clock professional nursing care for people with chronic illness. 

     

  • What’s included in my monthly rent?

    The monthly fee includes the rental of your suite, meals, housekeeping, 24/7 emergency response system, cable, utilities and many activities.  

  • Do I have to sign a lease?

    A Resident Occupancy Agreement is signed and tenancy is on a month-to-month basis.
