Great Questions About Assisted Living
Great questions and comments we have received about The Pines assisted living:
Q: 'My husband has been diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment. I am told that eventually this will progress to some form of dementia. He is at home and at this point does not need assistance, however, I am anticipating sometime in the future that he will need care. I am still working, and will probably be working 6 or 7 more years. I would like some information as far as cost for staying at your facility. Would it be possible for me to live there as well? '
Q: Can you give us an estimated cost for assisted living without memory care needed. I realize The Pines has a variety of residence plans and we would probably be interested in a one bedroom. Our father is currently taking rehab at a nursing home and may be more appropriate for assisted living than going home to his condominium.
Q: Do you have a long-term memory care unit? My father currently lives at The Rivers in Burnsville. His advancing dementia is requiring increased care and I've been notified that as he progresses, I may need to find another home for him. He currently has eight or more visits a day, is escorted to all meals, is dressed and undressed by staff, plus given baths twice a week. I am very pleased with The Rivers and understand you are associated with them? Thank you!- Linda

Q: Hello, I have a client that is looking to move back into the community. Here is a little more information about the client. She is 48 years old receiving disability waiver. She needs regulate monitoring of her blood sugar levels. I was wondering if she would be a good fit for the facility at The Pines. Lastly, I’d like to know if there are any openings available and if I could get some information on the facility. Thank you for your time.
