Is my loved one appropriate for assisted living?
Assisted Livings are meant as an alternative to having care in your home. They offer hands on care, homemaker services, handicap accessibility, and nursing oversight. They do not provide the skilled nursing services that a nursing home has. Seniors must be medically stable to be eligible for assisted living. If you are unsure if your loved one is eligible, please contact the Director, Emily Slattery.
What are your rooms like? Old Glory Days has 4 bedrooms to choose from; each bedroom has its own bathroom. Bedrooms 1 and 2 are both double occupancies. They are handicap accessible, located on the second floor, with hardwood floors, large windows, and twin beds. Bedroom 3 is a private suite on the second floor. It is handicap accessible with hardwood floors, a twin bed, and a private sunroom. Bedroom 4 is a large, private suite on the third floor. It requires walking up the flight of stairs from the second floor. It has wall to wall carpeting, a full-sized bed, and a sitting area.
What is your staff to resident ratio? There are two aides on staff for the six residents during the hours of 6 AM to 10 PM. One aide is on from 10 PM to 6 AM. A Registered Nurse is on site part time and is on call 24 hours a day.
Will there be extra costs? The monthly fee includes the room and board, meals, and all care provided by Old Glory Days. There is a one-month security deposit required at the time of the Agreement. Additional fees include: medical supplies such as glasses, hearing aids, dentures, oxygen concentrator, nebulizer, and assistive devices; personal care supplies such as briefs and wipes, denture cream, and toiletries if you choose not to use the ones provided; haircuts; and personal transportation. Skilled visiting nurse or therapy services will be billed by the provider directly.
