Frequently Asked Questions
What is assisted living?
It’s a combination of community living with personalized supportive services and some health care. This level of care is designed to meet the needs of The House residents who need help with activities of daily living. The goal of assisted living is to ensure comfort and safety while preserving as much independence as possible.
What is the difference between an acute care facility and a subacute care facility (such as The House)?
Subacute care facilities usually provide up to two hours of therapy a day; acute care facilities usually provide three or more hours of therapy a day. The hospital discharge planner and the physician determine which type of facility will best serve the patient.
Is Medicaid accepted?
Medicaid is accepted in both our skilled care and comprehensive care apartments, which offer assisted living services. Medicaid applicants may be placed on a waiting list based on apartment availability.
What is the difference between assisted living and comprehensive personal care?
Comprehensive personal care is a type of assisted living with smaller, less costly apartments, yet the services offered are identical to those in traditional assisted living.
