Great question about facility care and services

This was a great question submitted to our site recently – I am posting it because it is a great “loaded” question for a facility. I did not include any personal information to protect the person who submitted it.


“My father-in-law is a ex-POW from the Korean War receiving 100% V.A. disability, Medicare, all medications through the V.A., and has Medicare supplementary insurance through Humana. He has suffered mini-strokes and has been diagnosed with mild to moderate dementia. His physician has stated he requires 24-hour supervision but since he can attend to his personal hygiene, dress, operate a microwave, etc., he is not recommending a ‘nursing home’ per say. Based on this information, which of your facilities’ services would be best suited for my father-in-law’s needs and can you provide a ballpark monthly price range for said services. Thank you.”

    I hope solid arrangements can be made. Those who serve our country should absolutely have this service provided.
