Assisted Living Questions - Good Examples
We've seen some good questions come through to Eden House Assisted Living, which can serve as examples of the types of questions that you and your family might ask:
Q: My 95 year old mother lives with me and my husband up north. Most of our family resides in the Oakland/Macomb county area. Can you give me an approximate cost for your facility? What are the requirements for people residing there? Generally, how long of a wait is there to obtain residence there?"
Q: I am looking for an adult foster home in Troy for my father who currently lives alone and has been diagnosed with Frontotemoral Dementia. He needs help managing bills and medication. He keeps to himself and doesn't require any other assistance. Any availability? Cost? - Suzanne
Q: Hello, my name is Kimberly, and I'm looking for a temporary care facility for my father-in-law. I'm moving back to MI from FL. He can't sit in a car for long time spans. The three hour flight is hard on him. Do you offer care for like 2 weeks? If so, how much do you charge? If not, do you know any place that does? Thanks for any help you can offer.
Q: Could you please tell me what your rates/costs are? I'm looking for a place for my 84 year old mother. Thank you. - Marietta
Q: My 91 year old grandmother has been living with us for some time. She had her 3rd hip operation in May and came home from Heartland Rehab this past week. Unfortunately she is weak and has difficulty transferring herself from her wheelchair. She has had multiple toileting accidents as well. I am checking into long term care facilities to see what our options are. We work full time and cannot leave her unattended like we used to. She has become too much for us handle. Is your establishment an option for her? What is the cost? I'm guessing Medicare doesn't pay for this, but maybe you know for sure. We live at Wattles/John R, so keeping her close to home is a plus. She also is an avid euchre and pinochle player, so having another person (or 3) in the home that also plays, would be a HUGE advantage. Thanks for any info you can provide.
Q: Do the residents have their own bathroom? Is there an age requirement? How much is the respite care? Do you accept medicaid?
Q: Looking for a place for my father who is age 82 and has dementia....he is currently in an Assisted Living Facility in Troy that we are unhappy with.
Q: My father may need short term respite care starting on Monday. What do you have available and what is the cost. He'll be having a rod put in his arm which is weakened due to cancer. He will need help with dressing and sponge baths.
Q: We are inquiring about vacancy and cost. We are looking for a place for our mother, who is 87, very healthy, just can't live alone anymore. We are from Royal Oak.
Q: Was wondering how to apply for facility for resident aid?
Q: I am looking for affordable housing for my mom who has suffered from a stroke. Can you please tell me where I can find your rates?
Q: I have been left to care for someone's mentally ill daughter
who is 38 years old. I can't do it anymore. Is Eden House a place
for her and what would qualify her? She is on SSI currently and
her mother wants me to take her to social security office to have
the mom be the payee without being involved in her life , dumping
all responsibilities on me.
Q: How much is your monthly fee at Eden House? My brother is mentally ill and needs a place to stay. He has insurance and gets a disability check. I am his guardian.

Q: Do you have memory care residents? My mother (87yrs) has vascular dementia. Still very "independent", but needs monitoring. Want to avoid an institutional feeling home for her. Looking for Sept/Oct placement. Thanks for any information. - Patricia
