Great questions and comments that we have received about Gingerbread Manor - and assisted living that can serve as examples of the types (and thoroughness) of questions that you might consider asking potential facilities:
What is the monthly cost for an individual. Is your foster care home for males or females?
Our mother is 86 and very healthy with some dementia. She needs to be in a country setting where she can be free (and safe) to walk around. And who takes Medicaid.
Wondering if you have any openings for 84 yr. old ambulatory woman w/possible Alzheimer's dx. - although doing pretty well right now. Not private pay - would be Medicare or Medicaid- whichever that is.
My name is Ann with Senior Companion Program in Genesee & Lapeer Co. We have a senior volunteer in your area that has expressed a desire to volunteer at a local AFC home. We were wondering if you have any residence that might enjoy a visit on a weekly basis. We are a non-profit organization that assists senior volunteers to remain active in their communities. Please contact me if you might be interested.
I have a very high functioning 18 year old (November 10) daughter we are trying to place. She is mentally challenged, and should not be around children. We have a newborn Grandson and she does not do good with him.
What is your daily/monthly rate. Do you have any openings?
Are you accepting any new residents right now? And if you are I was wondering if I might be able to set up a time to come by and check out Gingerbread Manor assisted living?
I am seeking immediate low-income assisted living housing for my Dad. Can you help me?
***When asking a question about cost, we recommend offering the facility any information about insurance, benefits, or other payment details that may help them to make a more informed reply! - ALD
Q: I have a 32 year old daughter that I am looking for AFC. She is considered needing a mental health type of group home. She does very well on meds. She needs assistance with some things. I am looking for a place where she can feel comfortable and also have transportation to most places. With her young age, I am looking for a home that at least as a resident close to her age. She is on SSI. - Suzanne
