Marci,April 2013 - Good morning :My name is Marci and I have been communicating the past few days with Lisa regarding possible assisted living facilities.I was so very impressed with Lisa's responsiveness, positive attitude and willingness to help, I wanted to pass along a most sincere compliment.I live in North Carolina, and my siblings and are in the sad process of deciding if Mom can continue living alone. She is currently in a re-hab facility, and will likely be released soon.As for all families facing these issues it can be exhausting, depressing and scary, so it is such a nice surprise to encounter someone who truly cares and goes the extra mile to accommodate those families.Please include this email in her files, so that the next time she is being assessed it will remind the appropriate person that not only is she an excellent representative for your facility, but also a caring and professional person.Most sincerely,Marci
Assisted living facilities are for people needing assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) - such as eating, bathing, dressing, laundry and assistance with medications - but wishing to live as independently as possible. Assisted living exists to bridge the gap between independent living and nursing homes. Here at SilverRidge, we believe in aging in place. So you can move in independently and graduate levels of care without having to move.
Do you take Medicaid or Medicare?
We are not Medicare Certified but we are Medicaid Certified. Residents are eligible after 3 years of private pay in the Main Assisted Living and 2 years in the Memory Support Assisted Living.
Do you have planned activities?
We are adding and changing our activity program every month to better meet the needs of our current residents. We go shopping to local businesses weekly as well as trips to other locations monthly. There are multiple activities to attend every day at SilverRidge. There are calendars on this website to view for the month.
Are utilities covered in the base rate?
Yes, all utilities including basic cable/internet are included in the cost of the apartment with the exception of telephone. There is a small monthly fee for phone. It includes a land line and free long distance. We understand some folks have a cell phone, but we require a land line as well to communicate with residents directly. If residents are in need of more cable/internet options than we provide, the cable provider would need to be contacted which may result in an extra charge incurred by the resident. Wifi is included but it is limited to basic. This would mean streaming/heavy bandwidth use may be slow or unable to be provided.
At SilverRidge we have levels of care that can be increased or decreased to meet the current needs of the resident. Levels are based on a point system dependent upon what Activities of Daily Living they need to be helped with. The costs for these levels increase dependent upon the point total. An assessment is done to determine where the resident lands as far as points and level of care charge.
Do you accept Long Term Care Insurance?
Yes we do. We have multiple residents with insurance policies that we can assist and help prepare proper paperwork. Most insurance companies pay in arrears and directly to the resident. If your insurance company can pay directly to the facility let us know.
Do you have a direct bank withdrawal program?
Yes. We have a program set up with our financial carrier to handle the paperless payment transactions.
How can I ensure that I make the right decision?
Choosing the right Assisted Living facility takes a lot of research to ensure you find the best fit possible. We encourage you to take a tour of our facility, join us for a meal, or observe residents to get a sense of our atmosphere, and most important, be sure your individual needs will be met. It is recommended to visit at least 2 facilities to get a feel for how different facilities run. We all have the same goal, but not all have the same amenities or atmosphere that is to the residents liking. Shop around, do the homework to make sure their home will be to their liking.
