Assisted Living Tidbits
Great questions that we have received about Friends House - and assisted living that can serve as examples of the types (and thoroughness) of questions that you might consider asking potential facilities:
Q: How would I get my grandmother into your facility? Is there financial assistance? Is there a waiting list?
Q: Do you have a room available for assisted living with memory care for a female?
Q: Do you have any vacancies? If so, what are your requirements and costs?
Q: Our mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's about two years ago. She's a lovely Christian woman with memory loss. She loves going places and doing things, loves reading and is extremely social. She knows all of us (family) and remembers some friends - but she forgets what she's eaten among other things. She has great private insurance, but they have the same guidelines as Medicare. They will pay if Medicare pays. Do you accept insurance?
Q: Does Friend's House have a waiting period, and also do you need a doctor's formal diagnosis? Please send answers by email only.
Q: My in-laws are 87 & 88 years old and are considering moving to an assisted care facility. He has Alzheimers but is mobile with the use of a walker. I am researching facilities and would like to have a cost breakdown as well as availability. - Dan
