Assisted Living Tidbits
Great comments and questions that we have received about The Palms - and assisted living that can serve as examples of the types (and thoroughness) of questions that you might consider asking potential facilities:
Q: My stepmother is in a nursing home with a broken arm, may have to go to the Palms when the break heals. What is the cost of a room with 2 people, by the month or by the year. Any options? Also, my sister-in-law is a resident at the Palms.
Q; We have a family friend who's husband is hospitalized and will be going to a nursing home. The wife needs assisted living. Do you have any available units open? Thanks!
**It is always advisable to check whether there are openings well in advance of any move. Many assisted living facilities have waiting lists to the tune of months..or even years! - ALD
Q: My father had stroke and is currently in rehab at McKeesport pa. At this point, it isn't known if he will be able to walk again, his left side of body was affected. Do you have rooms available for someone potentially in a wheelchair? Can we visit your facility any time? Approximate price for private and semi-private please?? Also, my father is a veteran so do you show preference for vets? - Debbie
Q: My mom is in Mt Vernon of Eliz. Price has gone up and can barely afford to stay. She receives VA, SS & 2 pensions . What is your avg. monthly rate? - Mary Jo
Q: My family and I wanted to know if you offer adult day care services to non- residents of your facility. What is your hourly rate if you do? Can you recommend a facility that is in the White Oak area if you do not? My uncle is not quite ready for your assisted living but your services and living area look amazing!
