How do I know that this is the right decision for my mom and/or dad?
There are many misconceptions out there about senior living communities, but the most common response we get when someone moves in is: “Why did I wait so long?!” Moving to a senior living community does not mean your mom or dad has to give up any independence, hobbies they currently enjoy or travel plans. It simply allows them to live a simpler lifestyle without the stress of home maintenance and security or worries about what they would do should a health decline or emergency occur.
As a licensed continuing care retirement center (CCRC), we offer multiple levels of care – independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and rehabilitation – all under one roof. That means your loved ones won’t have to move again or be separated if their health needs change.
The best way to make the decision is to visit Town and Country Manor with your loved one(s) so you can experience the friendly environment for yourself and see everything we have to offer.
Can I afford to live at Town and Country Manor?
It is more affordable than you would think, especially when you factor in all your current living expenses. The monthly fee ranges are based on the apartment you select and the level of care you receive and include three meals a day, weekly housekeeping, maintenance and access to activities.
Many potential residents are pleased to know that the contract is month-to-month and there is no entrance fee required when you come to live at Town and Country Manor. This helps makes the decision and transition easier for most. Those who would like to lower their monthly rate are able to put down an optional continuing care entrance fee (amount required varies based on the apartment selected). Please give us a call or come in for a visit to discuss your individual situation and financial options.
How will I know which level of care is appropriate?
Whether the decision is for you or your loved one, we take many precautions to ensure you are choosing the right level of care. Prior to move-in, a wellness evaluation will be completed by the potential resident’s personal physician, and we will perform our own assessment. We use this information to determine which level of care will best meet the specific needs and desires of your loved one.
Independent living: In general, someone who is ambulatory and has the cognitive ability to safely take care of their own physical needs is appropriate for independent living.
Assisted living: Assisted living is a good option for those who have mobility limitations and need assistance with their personal hygiene and medication. Those who opt for assisted living are able to maintain their sense of independence, remaining involved in the social community at Town and Country Manor while receiving assistance and the peace of mind that comes with 24-hour nursing accessibility.
Skilled nursing: Admittance to skilled nursing is at the direction of a doctor and is for those who require daily assessment by a licensed nurse.
Can someone be admitted directly to skilled nursing?
Yes, anyone can be admitted directly to skilled nursing as long as it is ordered by a doctor.
I know that Town and Country Manor is a Christian faith-based organization. Do I need to be a Christian to live there?
Although the Christian faith is at the heart of our organization, we welcome residents from all religious backgrounds. Those who do not share the same faith beliefs often appreciate the warm and welcoming community that results from our values.
