Will I have to pay out of pocket for my family member’s stay?
Many insurances do cover 100%, but every insurance is different. Our Business Office Manager will be happy to meet with you and discuss your exact policy and benefits.
Does my loved one have to stay for a certain length of time?
Residents may leave at any time, but be aware, some insurances require you stay a certain length of time in order to provide coverage.
Can I visit anytime I want?
Depending on current restrictions, set by local authorities, there may be restrictions on visiting your loved one. If there are no restrictions, then you can visit any time you please. We just ask that you be mindful of the other residents, if you are visiting after normal business hours.
How long will my loved one stay at the skilled nursing facility?
While the average length of stay in a skilled nursing facility can be three to four weeks depending on the condition, every patient’s road to recovery is unique and based solely on the individual care plan and therapy progress. We also offer long-term care, if needed.
Who is responsible for laundry?
We are happy to provide laundry services, at no additional costs, however, your family is free to take it home and do it personally, if they so choose. Either way, please ensure that each item of clothing is labeled with the patient’s first and last name.
Will my loved one have a roommate?
Each case is evaluated individually. We have found that having a roommate often helps a new resident adjust to their new setting easier. We're very understanding of each new resident's circumstances and will accomodate as we can. We want each resident to enjoy their living space and will do what we can to ensure this is the case.
