Typical Questions Asked During an Assisted Living Visit
Our Admission Director, Ann Wittoesch, receives many questions during her initial consultations with families and below she shares her answers. We hope you find this information helpful and please do not hesitate to give us a call with any other questions you might have.
1. Is there a nurse available for your assisted living?
Yes, we have a full-time nurse who manages all medications for the residents. The medications are kept at the nurses’ station and are
administered throughout the day. Since our assisted living suites are under the same roof as our skilled facility, we are able to offer access to a nurse 24/7 for your loved one.
2. Are the assisted living apartments furnished?
We provide a twin bed and nightstand at no charge. Most residents prefer to accent their apartments with their own furnishings to make it feel more home-like. Typical furnishings would include: sofa, recliners, television, dresser, desk, curio cabinets, etc.
3. What is included for assisted living residents?
We offer 30 studio size apartments and each have private bathrooms with walk-in showers. We offer an emergency call response system for the residents to call for assistance with their activities of daily living. Laundry services, housekeeping, linens and towels
are included. Cable television, long distance phone service and wireless internet are also included at no charge. Beauty and Barber
shop services are available but there is a small charge for these services. Most importantly, we offer a variety of activities. Everything from chair dancing, trivia, worship services, art class and manicures to name a few. We also have several worship services to attend.
4. Does Medical Insurance like Medicare or a Medicare replacement plans, etc., pay for assisted living?
No, unfortunately only long term care plans would provide financial assistance in any assisted living facility. Assisted living communities are private pay. At Lincoln Park Manor a resident pays monthly, just like paying rent in the community. There is no endowment fee or “buy in” at Lincoln Park Manor. If you have questions about how long term care insurance policies apply to assisted living expenses, please contact us for a complimentary consultation. Lincoln Park Manor accepts Medicare, most Anthem plans, Aetna, Cigna, Tricare, Medical Mutual of Ohio and Premier Health Plan. Please call for a complete list and specifics.
